Government in the Ejisu Municipality has commenced the renovation of key roads in various communities, with a firm commitment to ensuring timely completion of these projects.

The Roads and Highways Minister, Francis Asenso Boakye, recently led a team from the ministry to inspect the ongoing projects, dispelling claims that the initiatives were solely due to the upcoming by-election in the area.

Approximately 32 road infrastructure projects are currently underway within the Ejisu Constituency, with the involvement of Urban, Feeder, and Highway Departments. The minister clarified that these contracts were awarded within the past three months, even before the passing of Ejisu MP, John Ampontuah Kumah.

Boakye emphasized that the construction works are not linked exclusively to the upcoming by-election, reinforcing the government’s dedication to enhancing infrastructure nationwide, including the Ejisu Municipality, as part of its broader development agenda. The Rehabilitation of these roads aims to improve connectivity, safety, and socio-economic development in the area, with ongoing projects in communities such as Achiakrom, Abankro, Donyina, Onwe, and Adako Jachie.

The Minister praised the contractors working on these projects, expressing confidence in their ability to meet the scheduled completion dates. He assured residents that these initiatives are not tied to the by-election but are part of the normal projects the ministry is implementing. The projects have been ongoing for the past three years and are a crucial part of the area’s infrastructure development.
