TECHIMAN: Govt awards 18-km Tuobodom-Offuman road on contract

 
Mr. Joe Gidisu  

The Government has awarded the 18-kilometre Tuobodom-Offuman road on contract for rehabilitation.

Work is currently progressing steadily on the road.

Mr Joe Gidisu, Minister of Roads and Highways, who announced this, said the two-kilometre Asueyi Junction-Asueyi township road as well as the eight-kilometre Asueyi-Buoyem road had been awarded on contract.

He said these contracts should serve as a testimony that the NDC did not shirk its responsibilities on development.

Mr Gidisu was accompanying President John Dramani Mahama on his four-day campaign tour of the Brong-Ahafo Region.  
President Mahama addressing an NDC rally at Offuman in the Tuobodom North District said the NDC had provided many social amenities in the health and road sectors and school infrastructure.

He said NDC believed in quality and affordable education and under its administration removed classrooms under trees after assumption in office, and 1,775 schools had so far been rehabilitated.

President Mahama said government had distributed 43 million exercise books and supplied free school uniforms in addition to the increase in the school feeding programme to one million children throughout the country.

He announced that 250 Junior High Schools (JHS) and 10 Teacher Training Colleges would be built to augment the existing JHS and Teacher Training Colleges in the country, when the NDC was retained in power.

President Mahama noted that the establishment of National Youth Enterprise Projects (NYEP), had increased job stability and development towards reducing unemployment, and the NDC would continue to explore more avenues to help the growth and development of the youth in terms of education and employment.

He asked activists and supporters of the NDC to bury their differences and unite for a resounding victory and extend similar messages to its sympathizers.

President Mahama later inaugurated street lights for Techiman township and held another rally at the Zongo Local Authority School Park.
