The Member of Parliament for Tarkwa-Nsuaem who is also the Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, George Mireku-Duker has re-emphasied government commitment to construct the Tarkwa-Agona Nkwanta road which is in very deplorable state.
Addressing the people at the 65th Independence parade at Tarkwa, Mr. Mireku-Duker said, the contractor who was on site actively working on the road has to leave the site because of the mining explosion at Appiatse to support the work there.
He said, the contractor has now moved to the site and the people would soon see progress on the road construction works on that stretch.
Mr. Mireku-Duker commended the teachers for their immense contribution toward developing the Ghanaian children which has a great reflection on the country’s economy.
He however stressed that, “teachers deserve to be awarded here on earth before they die not only in heaven should they receive their reward.”
The parade commanders were Chief Officer, Emmanuel Paa Kow Johnson and supported by Assistant Chief Officer, Patrick A. Badu.
8 cadet corps, 160 contingents with colour party, 2 Senior High Schools, 16 Basic Schools participated in the 65th Independence anniversary parade.
