Mr Ignatius Baffour Awuah who doubles as the Minister of Employment and labour relations however made stopover at communities such as Odumasi, Kwatire, Adentia, Abronyr and Boffourkrom to inspect covets and gutters which are been constructed in the vicinities.
Speaking to the media, the Minister described the progress of the work executed by WBHO construction limited as impressive.
“Before the award of the contract, there was some a bit of skeptism but the work done so far is really impressive and promising” He hinted.
He however called on both the consultant and contractor of the project to maintain the pace and level of quality to ensure quality work done for his constituents.
“I want to entreat the consultant (Alexiboam Construction Limited) and WBHO to keep up with the good works till the completion of the job within the stipulated 30 months period. I will however call on other contractors nationwide to execute their contract with such speed and commitment” Mr Awuah observed.

Speaking on the progress of the project, the Site Manager for WBHO, Mr Elvis Ampem, expressed profound gratitude to the Ghana Highways Authority and other stakeholders for such success.

In furtherance, the community members have been very helpful by consensually moving any property which intercepts the progress of the project.” He said.
He however promised their unflinching commitment to complete the work in time.
