Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has urged the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, not to be sidetracked, but remain focused and deliver on his mandate to the Ghanaian people.
The Asantehene said “it is always good that you leave Jubilee House to go around the country and see things for yourself, so you can right the wrongs, and make sure that your policies are being implemented to the letter.”
President Akufo-Addo had paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene at the Manhyia, on Wednesday, as part of his three-day working tour in some parts of the Ashanti Region.
The Asantehene prayed for God’s blessings for the President and the work he is undertaking for the growth and development of Ghana.
Nana Akufo-Addo told the Asantehene that all road projects, for which he had cut the sod for construction, were progressing steadily, and assured him that “in due time, all the road projects in Asanteman will be completed.”
President Akufo-Addo, after his visit to Manhyia, went to Suame Magazine to interact with artisans.
Meeting with an enthusiastic crowd, the leadership of the artisans thanked the President for the facility being provided by EXIM Bank, which is intended to make Suame a prominent automobile metal fabrication centre, and creating some 4,000 direct and indirect jobs.
Reacting to the appeals from the artisans for the construction of their roads, the President assured them that construction of the 10-kilometre stretch of inner-roads within Suame Magazine would commence soon, after the award of the contract.
