Government says it has initiated 17,334 infrastructure projects since its assumption of office in 2017.

Vice President Dr Mahamadu Bawumia says this is in line with the administration of New Patriotic Party’s pledge to improve the infrastructure prowess of the country as stipulated in the party’s manifesto in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

He made these comments at the Government Result Fair at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences in Accra.

“We have completed 8,746 and 8,588 are ongoing,” Dr Bawumia said as he addressed the gathering.

He explained that these projected were in agriculture, education, energy, health, housing, industrial, market, railway, road safety and security, youth and development infrastructure.

Dr Bawumia emphasised the government’s commitment to ensure the even distribution of resources to some remote communities and as a result, many of these projects had been cited across the breadth of the country.

He described it as a broad base wide-scale infrastructure taking place in a very district rather than having a few big infrastructure projects localised in a few cities in the country.
