Ken Ofori-Atta, Finance Minister

Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta says the Akufo-Addo-led government is committed and will gradually fix all deplorable roads in Ghana.

“Fellow Ghanaians, I wish to plead with you and assure you to bear with us for your obeying government, the Akufo-Addo government will fix your roads and we shall fix them not with words and pictures,” he said.

Presenting the Mid-year Budget Review statement on the Floor of Parliament on Monday, Mr Ofori-Atta said “he always reminds us that we are certainly not there yet in spite of our efforts to confront poverty, fix our roads, provided community housing, support our farmers, protect the vulnerable, offer better conditions of service to our nurses, teachers, security officers and get businesses operating optimally.

 “The President is always quick to remind us of the urgency to meet the needs and aspirations of the Ghanaian people. Just last week as we discussed the details of this statement, the President reminded us that in spite of all that we have managed to achieve so far, too many Ghanaians must still be taken out of poverty.

“He said we are being checked and that we should be bold in taking steps that will offer us the fiscal space to improve the lives of those who we serve.”
