Minister of Information Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said that President Akufo-Addo will from Tuesday December 4, 2018 commence a three day tour of the Greater Accra Region in accordance with his commitment to pay working visits to all regions every year.
This will be his 20th such visit since assumption of office and represents his final tour this year.
His Excellency has already visited all nine (9) other regions this year.
On each tour the President makes time to interact with chiefs and people, key stakeholders in the region as well as the Regional Security Councils.
He also uses the opportunity to inspect on-going works across various sectors and commissions completed projects. In the Greater Accra Region, he will be commissioning and inspecting 10 major projects as part of his tour.
The President will be using the opportunity to apprise himself of the status of work as well as urging agencies and contractors to ensure diligence and value for money.
These and the many other projects that the President has inspected or commissioned on the other 9 tours have been funded even in the midst of the limited fiscal space and huge arrears inherited by the Akufo-Addo administration.
The President expects that as outlined in the 2019 budget, the improving fiscal environment and significant reduction in arrears will afford the administration the opportunity to ramp up more economic infrastructure projects nationwide in 2019 and 2020.
