Mr.Kwasi Amoako Attah, minister of roads and highways under the ruling NPP government has stated that former president John Agyekum Koffour did worse on roads in the Ashanti region.
According to him not even a single road was constructed by former president Kuffour in the Ashanti region under his 8 year term.
Almost all roads projects under construction in kumasi were started under Mahama and was halted by Akufo Addo under the guise of conducting value-for-money-audit.
Clear evidence has it that all roads in the Ashanti region were started and some completed by the Mills/Mahama led administration.
Here are the indicators.
