Understand the road sector before you comment – Amoako-Attah tells critics to master the subject.

The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako Attah, has reassured the public that the government will construct more road projects before President Akufo-Addo leaves office in December 2024.

He emphasized that the President has achieved significant success in the roads sector, constructing more roads than any other government in the Fourth Republic.

During a parliamentary debate on the state of the nation address, Amoako-Attah addressed critics, stating that individuals should have a clear understanding of the roads sector before commenting. He warned that otherwise, they would be expressing their ignorance.

He also mentioned that the Ministry of Roads and Highways has data on all roads that have been constructed in Ghana before and after Akufo-Addo became president. He urged doubters to visit the Ministry for the data to do their analysis.

Amoako-Attah further noted that Akufo-Addo’s comment is factual, indisputable, and backed by data. He recommended that Parliament establish a bipartisan committee to scrutinize the President’s claim, if necessary.

On March 8th, President Akufo-Addo addressed Parliament, stating that his administration has built more roads than any government in the Fourth Republic. However, his comments were challenged by the Minority in Parliament, with the Minority Chief Whip Kwame Agbodza labeling the President’s statement as a “barefaced lie.”

Agbodza pointed out that funding for some of the road projects had been secured by the previous Mahama/NDC administration, and works were already underway before Akufo-Addo took office in 2017.

Despite these objections, Amoako-Attah stood by Akufo-Addo’s statement, maintaining that it was factual and verifiable. He challenged anyone to investigate the data and confirmed that an independent bipartisan committee could be established to scrutinize the President’s claims.
