President Nana Akufo-Addo has promised that 2021 will be the “second year of roads”.

“We defined last year as the year of roads. This year will be the second year of roads as we continue with our focus on dealing with the deficits of our road infrastructure,” the president said in his inaugural speech on Thursday, January 7, 2021.

He noted that roads are currently being constructed at a faster pace than before but there are still more kilometers to be constructed and that was why he has designated this year as a second year of roads.

The president added the development of the country’s rail sector, on which considerable resources and energies are being devoted will also open up the country and help realize the goal of regional and continental integration.

According to him, Ghana remains one of the most attractive destinations on the continent for direct foreign investment and the presence of some of the world’s largest conglomerates in the country attests to that.

“Establishing a strong economy, undergoing a structural transformation with value-added activities which will generate jobs for our young people and enhance their living standards will be the main preoccupation of my second term,” he promised.

The President also urged Ghanaians to continue to be citizens during the second term of his administration and not to be spectators.

“The sheer can-do-spirit of the Ghanaian, which I have witnessed all my life, is the bedrock on which we can build the Ghana of our dreams. Indeed, four years ago, at my first inauguration, I urged all Ghanaians to be, and I quote, ‘citizens and not spectators’.

“In my first term as President, I was able to count on the contribution of all citizens in attempting to create this Ghana. What I have seen these last four years is further evidence…that the Ghanaian will no longer accept poverty and deprivation as his or her portion, but is rather determined to work to chart a path of growth and development for himself or herself,” he said.
