Former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has revealed his biggest regret while President of the Republic of Ghana.
According to him, this regret has been one that has worried him till date. The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), who was on a tour in the Volta region, made this known while addressing the chiefs and people of Peki.
He said “My regret is that we did not complete the famous Eastern Corridor road before we left. By the time we left, all segments of it were being worked on. “I believe that if the NDC had continued in office today we would not be talking about the Eastern Corridor road,” he said.
However, Mr. Mahama who is optimistic about wrestling power from the New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the impending election assured the people of finishing the road in his second term.
“It is the number one priority for us. This Eastern Corridor road goes through 21 districts from South and North and you can imagine the number of agricultural products and others that come down this road to be able to reach the markets in Accra and Tema.”
The Easter Corridor roads links five regions; the Greater Accra, Eastern, Ashanti, Volta, Oti and Upper East regions.
