Recent debates on the deplorable state of roads in the country have become a matter of concern for both ‘ordinary’ citizens and politicians in the country.
The debate centres on how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ roads in the country are.
On Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem, Thursday, New Patriotic Party Member Parliament for Tarkwa Nsuaem, George Mireku Duker and National Democratic Congress Member of Parliament for Amenfi West, Eric Afful, during a debate on the true state of roads in the country, dared each other to show proof of each other’s ‘good work done’ in the road sector.
Mr Afful was of the view that the cancelling of most road contracts by the President on assumption of office was due to his government’s inability to provide mobilisation fees needed by local contractors to enable them continue with road projects started under former President John Mahama.
His counterpart, Mr Duker, however, denied the allegation and requested to see evidence of the so-called “unprecedented infrastructural projects”, particularly with roads construction as touted by the previous government.
