“Ghana has the most engineered roads in West Africa,” President Mahama stressed.
He also promised extending this feat across the African continent if he retains the mandate to continue another four-year term.
President Mahama made this known in his state-of-the-nation address to Parliament on Thursday, February 25.
He said his government is committed to expanding road infrastructure in the country but appealed to drivers to strictly observe traffic regulations in order not to plunge into avoidable accidents.
He recalled how sad he felt last week when he visited victims of the Kintampo crash. President Mahama took the opportunity to thank doctors and staff of medical facilities including Kintampo Government Hospital for the care given to victims including children.
President Mahama talked up how asphalt plants in the country has risen from six in 2012 to 22, pointing out that most of the 22 are Ghanaian-owned.
