Road Infrastructure Critical for Ghana

The Minister made the observation on the first day of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s two-day working visit to the Upper East Region. The Minister, who was responding to concerns raised by the Chiefs and People in the Region about the bad nature of roads in the area, said the ruling Government inherited 72,000 kilometres of roads which were in very deplorable state.
