Nana Addo Affirms Authority: Ghana roads require my approval


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, speaking at a gathering with supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Ejisu on April 28, 2024, highlighted his crucial role in ensuring fair distribution of development projects nationwide, particularly in road infrastructure.

At the rally held to support the NPP candidate for the upcoming by-election following the passing of the Ejisu Member of Parliament, John Kumah, President Akufo-Addo questioned the previous representative’s contributions, specifically in road construction.

Asserting his authority, he stated that no road could be built in Ghana without his approval, emphasizing the pivotal role of his administration in such projects until the end of its term in January.

Highlighting the importance of electing an NPP representative, President Akufo-Addo emphasized the need for an NPP majority in Parliament to facilitate the smooth implementation of government agendas.

The impending Ejisu by-election, scheduled for April 30, 2024, carries significant implications for the political landscape.

In parallel, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the NPP’s flagbearer, cautioned constituents against voting for an independent candidate, Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, in the upcoming by-elections, warning that it would indirectly benefit the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Addressing voters at a final campaign rally, Bawumia stressed the importance of party allegiance and unity, urging support for the NPP candidate to consolidate the party’s position in Parliament.

He highlighted the delicate balance of power in Parliament, with the NPP holding a slim majority of 138 seats against the NDC’s 137, underscoring the significance of every vote in strengthening the ruling party’s mandate.
