The Eastern Regional Minister, Eric Kwakye Darfour, has said that the quality of road works and quality of materials being used to construct roads is an improvement of what the country was given to in recent past. This, according to him, is due to President Akufo-Addo’s commitment to building ‘value for money’ projects.

“It is amazing; this is the ‘Year of Roads’,  and we are all witnessing it. The level of enthusiasm by the citizenry shows they are so happy because for a very long time they have not had their roads tiled. They are so thankful to the President and the government, and I know they are going to give the President four more years for him to do more,” he said.
