President John Mahama says the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) government will put the necessary measures in place to enable VALCO and the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) operate at full capacity.
This, according to the president, forms part of government’s commitment to create job opportunities for people living in Tema and its immediate environs.
The president also says the coming on stream of VALCO will trigger other energy related job opportunities in the area.
Addressing NDC supporters in the Tema Community 2 on Monday night, the president said his government, if retained in Friday’s polls, will restore Tema to its past glory.
President Mahama also touched on the development of the motorway, promising to expand the popular route to a six-lane carriageway.
“In the next four years of the NDC government, we are going to build an interchange at the motorway round about so that there will be no traffic [jam] at the motorway round about again,” he said.
The president is currently rounding up his campaign in the Greater Accra region.
