President Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged the electorate to hinge their decision on the December elections on the records of the various contestants for the presidency.

He recounted how, in the run-up to the 2016 election, he urged the electorate to give him a chance to implement his agenda of transforming the nation.

“They gave me the chance, so it is now for them to decide on the work I have done. I told them to try me, they have tried me, and they can discern better whether I have done a good job or not. On my part, I have done what I could do, and I know that the Ghanaian people are also impressed with the work I have done,” he added.

President Akufo-Addo said this on Monday when he took his turn to register for his voter ID card at the Rock of Ages Registration Centre at Kyebi, in the Abuakwa South constituency of the Eastern Region. He was accompanied by First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo and his daughters.

Nsukwao drainage

In a related development, the President yesterday cut sod for the commencement of construction of the Nsukwao Basin Drainage Project, at Koforidua in the Eastern Region, under the Ghana Secondary Cities Support Programme (GSCSP).

He said the New Juaben Municipal Assembly had identified flooding as a major risk to the lives and livelihoods of persons living in Nsukwao, Zongo, Two Streams, Abongri and other communities within the municipality.

Nsukwao, the community in which the project will be situated, has since 2016 recorded, annually, incidents of flooding, which have rendered most residents homeless.

President Akufo-Addo explained that the drainage project will deliver a storm drain that will minimise flooding in the identified communities.

The project will also involve installation of four storm water surface detention ponds, distributed along Nsukwao River, flow facilities, channelization and streambank stabilization, concrete pipes, culverts and two access roads.

ID1F – Akro Farms

At Apasare, in Akuapem North, President Akufo-Addo visited Akro Farms Ltd, a 1-District 1-Factory (1D1F) initiative.

The company, which produces  fresh and heathy table eggs, chicken feed, broilers, processed chicken and day-old chicks, has completed the first phase of its project with an investment of some GH¢20 million.

Management told the President that the automated brooder house has a capacity of 40,000 birds, and has an automatic egg collection and packaging system installed to ensure speed and efficiency in their processes.

The company has created both direct and indirect job opportunities for over 1,025 individuals.
