Fmr Minister Blames Akufo-Addo For Neglecting Adenta Footbridge

Inusah Fuseini, Former Minister of Roads  has accused the Akufo-Addo-led administration of abandoning the completion of the footbridges on the main Adenta-Madina highway resulting in pedestrian killings. 

According to  him even though the project was not completed under the Mahama administration, the Akufo-Addo--led should have completed it by now. 

Speaking on Kasapa FM Friday, he said “before I left office, it was only left with the footbridges we had to work on…..we did everything, the only safety mechanism left on the road was to complete the footbridges. This is why am saying that, if government had prioritized the project this wouldn’t have happened because I left all the documents with them and the ministry of highway knows about it. The contractor was on site working before I left the ministry and so if the contractor had been ordered and facilitated, enabled to go back to site,this death we are experiencing, wouldn’t have happened at all” 

According to him, the project was part of the “gang of four” which was started by President Kufour. It has no dedicated source of funding……during our time, on yearly basis, we allocate funds for the completion of the project. So I ask, 1st January 2017 to the end, how much was paid to the contractor to go and complete the outstanding work, on 1st January until now, how much was paid to the contractor to go back to site”
