Columnist: Amewu, John Peter

Akufo-Addo was right about Hohoe town roads

John Peter Amewu (former MCE for Hohoe) writes:


1. The 46 kilometre of road from Pepesu to Nkwanta was funded by EU fund under President Kufuor. The NPP had secured funding for the construction of the road before President Kufuor left office.

2. The Golokwati-Hohoe road was constructed under NPP double seal (awarded to Rollider)

3. All Hohoe town roads were constructed by NPP. These include:

a) post office to electricity (awarded to GOHES Ltd);

b) the district assembly to the electricity (awarded to GOHES Ltd);

c) the post office square to the stadium (awarded to GOHES Ltd);

d) the market to the hospital (awarded to GOHES Ltd);

e) Zongo junction to Barclays (awarded to GOHES Ltd); and

f) Post office Square to St Francis College (awarded to GOHES Ltd)

4. In all about 7.2km of the town road was constructed under the NPP with chipping spray.


1. The 300-metre hospital road in Hohoe is currently under construction at very slow pace. This includes the construction of the side drains. This section of the town road was awarded under the NDC.

2. Work on the other road network in Hohoe, involving the construction of drains at Kpeme, Bla and Abanse road, has been abandoned over a year ago with the contractor having vacated the site.
