Bawumia dangles new harbour, airport plans before voters in Central region
Government is set to construct a new harbour and an airport in the central regional capital, Cape Coast.
This was revealed by the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, at the Manifesto launch on Saturday.
The Vice President emphasised the need for the central region to get its own airport to help with tourism and the development of the country.
“We will accelerate our investments in roads, railways and ports. And for the people of Cape Coast, I have good news for you.
“We are building a new harbour in Cape Coast and a new airport in Cape Coast. It is very critical that we do that. An airport makes a lot of sense in Cape Coast. It’s a real tourism hub.
“Between Greater Accra, Kumasi and Cape Coast, you have a triangle that is really a hub of economic activities. It is a major growth pole if we put an airport there to drive infrastructural growth,” he promised.
He also mentioned that the NPP government has fulfilled 80% of promises made during the electioneering period.
According to the Vice President, the massive achievements of the current administration surpass the first term of any government in Ghana’s history.
“We have over 300 achievements in the first three years. If you look at the manifesto, you will see that we have achieved 80 percent of our promises.
“That is massive for any government in its first term. When you look at these achievements, you realise that sector by sector we have really performed much better than the previous NDC government,” he reiterated.
