A pressure group, Intelligent Youth of Afadzato South (IYAS) has said President Akufo-Addo’s action on the re-awarding of the Eastern Corridor Road Project from the middle belt leaving the starting point of the project looks “vindictive and in alignment towards a parochial interest”.

The group in a letter to the Volta Regional House of Chief on some number of issue said the Eastern Corridor Road project that have stalled was “due to political ill will” and that the situation seriously is hindering on the quality of life of people and commercial progress in the region.

“We recall very vividly when the president of the republic, Nana Akuffo Addo, during the State of The Nation (SONA) 2018, address to parliament promised to find resources to complete the project after directing for works to stop on allegations of contract irregularities having assumed power in 2016. Anyone would have thought for almost 3 years halting progress on the project, findings would be made public for appropriate sanction to whoever that is found culpable” – IYAS writes

“It is rather unfortunate and insulting for the President, Nana Akuffo Addo, to lose count of start on the project and begin to rearward it on contract from the middle belt, leaving behind the beginning portion unattended to the detriment of the good people of the region”
