Speaking to Skyy News about the development, the Municipal Chief Executive for Nzema East, Frank Okpenyen, expressed his delight at the development.
”It fills me with a sense of pride that we have been able to secure approval for a contract like this. For the first time, we are also going to have bitumen surfacing on our roads. It may not mean much elsewhere but this is something that we have never had here”.
”Of course this isn’t the end because the Municipal Assembly would have to work with the Depart of Feeder Roads to ensure that the contractor does a good job and delivers on time and we are confident he will move to sight and begin work before the end of the year” he said.
In July this year, Minister for Roads and Highways, Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Atta cut sod for construction of the deplorable 30km Gwira Aiyinasi-Gwira Wiawso road.
The contract worth GH₵14,009,852.44, should be concluded within twelve months of commencement of the project.
