The issue of bad roads which has been a source of worry for most Ghanaians has become a battle ground for some politicians in Ghana.
Whereas the previous government claims it did more to ensure that Ghanaians enjoy good roads, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government on the other hand thinks otherwise.
The latest to join the debate is the NPP Chairman for Bono Region, Kwame Baffoe aka Abronye DC and National Democratic Congress (NDC) communications team member, Peter Kwesi Mensah.
Speaking in an interview on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem, Tuesday, Abronye DC questioned ‘the supposed roads’, the
unprecedented roads the NDC government spoke of and claimed in its infamous ‘Green Book.’
“You always rant that you have fixed roads and even in your ‘Green Book’, you claimed to have constructed roads but my question is where are all the roads the NDC spoke about?” he quizzed.
He accused the NDC of awarding contracts and failing to ensure the roads were indeed fixed.
To him, President Nana Akufo-Addo is determined to change the course of history and also overhaul the road infrastructure network in Ghana.
He said the NDC government signed deliberate contracts without pay to contractors.
However, a member of the NDC communications team, Kwesi Mensah, who believes otherwise, described President Akufo-Addo as a failure when it comes to construction of roads.
“Unlike the Mahama-led administration, the NPP has not been able to construct new roads which to me is a failure of the ruling party.”
