The town hall meeting is an initiative of the NPP where they unveil to us their process on the promises that they made when they came to power. The last two meeting were held in January and February at Accra and Kumasi respectively.

This time around, it was held at the Academy of Arts and Science in Accra yesterday. The meeting didn’t take place earlier as expected due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But now, the virus placating in its own way left to the meeting to happen yesterday under the auspices of the Vice President.
The government penciled this year’s theme as the “year of roads”. There are 4,500 completed roads, 62 new bridges underway in the country. The government will be upgrading the Kumasi airport to an International one.
Health is the essentials of the citizenry to keep on kicking in life, and the government has provided exactly that. The government has built 482 chips compounds with 300 fully equipped ambulances. He has also built 64 health staff whiles 30 are under construction. These are all in bid to make life easy in the country.
The soul of machine, the spirit of the wander in the village. Electricity, stand tell in all. The solar farm in Gomua-Amafi generates 20 mega watts of power and feeds it into the national power grade. There are three more under construction in these towns; Lawra, Kaleo, Kurugu. In all that, it will generate 154 mega watts electric power. The government has extended electricity to over 2,700 communities of 628 communities on going.
Water is indeed another source of power to life, without these seas of ours, we will have scarce of water. The government has built sea defense in Anomabo, four more sea defense in different towns around the coast with a total distance of 6,300 meters.
Without cattle, there will not be enough meat and there will certainly not be any pure milk for anyone. But for the milk to flow and the meat to be abundant, that is twice essentials to the cut of farmers in the North. Cattle now have access to water and pasture.
The government started a construction for over 500 dums in dugouts like the one in Pwalugu to hold and reserve 12 million cubic meters of water to serve over 579,000 farmers through the dry season.

The construction of 48 separate stalls/stores in the Asante Mampong are fully completed.

With regards to the rural areas, you and I can bear a strong witness to the fact that, access to toilet in rural area in the country is nothing to write home about. You can pay a visit to a densely populated area and residents are defecating at an unauthorized places.
