President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo today Friday 29th November, 2019 cut sod for the construction of 120 homes in the Upper East Regional capital of Bolgatanga.
The project, named Rock Estates due to the Rocky nature of the environment, is situate in Pusunamungu about 15 minutes drive from Pwalugu.
The project when completed would consist of 4 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms detached and semi-detached.
This is the second time the President has cut a sod for a housing project by the rejuvenated State Housing Company under the current Management. The first one was August last year in Kumasi where President Akufo-Addo cut sod for the construction of the J. A. Kufuor Estate. Work is progressing steadily on the project.
The housing project is expected to creat more than 3,000 job opportunities in the Bolgatanga enclave.
The President was accompanied by the Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the Works and Housing Minister, Hon Samuel Atta Akyea, Kwabena Ampofo Appiah-Director of State Housing, the Upper East Regional Minister among other dignitaries.
