New roads minister hits ground running.
The Minister of Roads and Highways, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini, has assured Ghanaians that they would not only sit in their offices and award contracts, but will move to the field to inspect progress of work of such contracts, to ensure that they are executed well and completed on scheduled.
“I want to create that necessary impression that we will not be sitting in the office and awarding contract, [but] when we award contract, we will come on to the ground and monitor and see how the contractors are performing, and out of the difficulties, and see how we can work together to overcome the difficulties”, he said.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale North, gave the assurance when he paid a day’s working visit to contractors working on the Teshie-Nungua-Sakumono roads, to inspect progress of work on that stretch of road yesterday.
Contrary to perception that the Ministry was not performing it core mandate by getting roads across the country constructed, it emerged that many roads were being built across the country.
Indeed, the new Minster said, checks carried out by him confirmed that his predecessor, Haminu Sulemana, who is now the Upper West Regional Minister, performed creditably well except that the ministry failed to communicate its activities.
