I Will Resign As MP If Government Provides Data On 10,875 Km Of Roads - Agbodza
The Ranking Member on the Roads and the Transport Committee of Parliament, Governs Kwame Agbodza, says he will resign as a Member of Parliament if the government is able to provide data on claims that it has constructed over 10, 000 Kilometers of roads within a period of five years. The President also announced the
construction of over 10,000 km of roads in a space of 5 years during his presentation of State of the Nation’s Address on Wednesday, March 30, 2022. Addressing the media, Mr Kwame Agbodza called for the relevant documents to support the assertion. If the government can have data on the 10,800 kilometers of new roads
constructed I will resign as an MP, take it from me. But if it is also true that the government did not build 10, 800 kilometers of road, the President should resign. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo had declared 2021 as the second year of roads. Delivering inaugural speech on Thursday, January 7, 2021, President Nana
Akufo-Addo said he will largely prioritize road projects to improve infrastructure this year. Our roads are being constructed at a faster pace than before, and yes, there are still many more kilometres to construct. We defined last year as the year of roads. This year will also be the second year of roads as we continue with our focus on
dealing with the deficits of our road infrastructure. The Minister of Roads and Highways, Amoako-Attah, also reiterated the government’s resolve to construct more roads between the 2021 and the 2024.
