We’ve initiated 17,334 infrastructural projects; 8,746 completed – Bawumia

Since 2017, the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has initiated 17,334 infrastructural projects in this country, the Vice President has said.

“Of these, we have completed 8,746 and there is 8,588 ongoing,” Dr Mahamudu Bawumia said.

He made this known at the Town Hall Meeting at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences in Accra on Tuesday, August 18.

Vice President Bawumia further revealed that the Akufo-Addo administration is adopting a two-way approach towards infrastructural development in the country.

This approach makes it possible to cover all persons in the country under the project.

Dr Bawumia told the gathering, among which are ministers of state and other dignitaries, that: “Our focus has been to provide infrastructure for all. That has been the focus.  And our approach to infrastructural development in Ghana has been two-fold.

“First, to provide the infrastructure needs of the poor and deprived communities at the micro level like water, toilets, clinics, electricity, markets. Many governments have ignored this historically.

“Second, our approach is to provide it for the broader infrastructural needs of the economy at the macro level  to drive economic growth.

“Infrastructure for all includes all amenities that people need on order to unleash their potentials for their growth in their communities, constituencies and districts.”
