President Akufo-Addo has cut sod for the construction of the Axim sea defence wall, in fulfillment of the pledge he made to the people of Axim, in the run-up to the 2016 general elections.

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Sunday, 9th September, 2018, cut the sod for the construction of the Axim sea defence wall, in fulfillment of the pledge he made to the people of Axim, in the run-up to the 2016 general elections.

The sea defence wall project, which is being undertaken by Makam Plant Hire Ltd., is expected to be completed in some 24 months, with the contractors assuring the President of the prompt execution of the project.

Speaking at Axim, at this year’s Kundum Festival, prior to the cutting of the sod, President Akufo-Addo recounted his visit to Brawire, in Axim, in 2016, where he witnessed, at firsthand, the devastation caused by tidal waves to the community.

He, therefore, pledged that if the people of Axim and, by extension the people of Ghana, voted him into office, he would ensure the construction of the sea defence wall.

“Today, I am here to fulfill this promise. Axim is the birthplace of George Alfred Paa Grant, and we are doing this in his honour, as well as to secure the lives and properties of residents of Axim,” he said.

Touching a request by Awulae Attibrukusu III, Chief of Axim, for the construction of Axim town roads, the President indicated that the Minister for Roads and Highways, Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Atta, would, in a fortnight, cut the sod for the construction of the roads in the constituency.

In addition to the construction of a sports stadium at Dr Beamish, a surburb of Axim, the near completion of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) at Axim junction, President Akufo-Addo also revealed that the Victoria Park, would also undergo significant transformation into a well-designed ceremonial ground.

With Evalue-Gwira being largely a cocoa growing area, the President announced that Evalue-Gwira has been as a cocoa district, with cocoa farmers no longer having to travel to Amenfi Central, Prestea Huni Valley, Ahanta West and Ellembelle to receive their inputs.

On education, President Akufo-Addo stated that over 1,200 school children in Evalue-Gwira have so far benefitted from the Free SHS policy, with more to be absorbed this year. 
He also announced that Nsein SHS has been selected by government as a model school, which will result in the expansion of infrastructure of the school.

Touching on the lack of communication and network services for the vast majority of the people in the constituency, the President indicated that the Ghana Infrastructure Fund for Electronic Communication (GIFEC), through its rural telephony project, has provided network services to Gwira Banso, Gwira Kutukrom, Gwira Asowa, Gwira Ashiem, Gwira Dominase.
