Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has revealed that the next NPP government will be constructing a new harbour and an airport in Central Regional capital – Cape Coast.
He disclosed this during the New Patriotic Party’s manifesto launch today in the Central Region on Saturday, August 22, 2020.
“We will accelerate our investments in roads, railways and ports. And for the people of Cape Coast, I have good news for you. We are building a new harbour in Cape Coast and a new airport in Cape Coast. It is very critical that we do that. An airport makes a lot of sense in Cape Coast. It’s a real tourism hub. Between Greater Accra and Kumasi and Cape Coast, you have a triangle that is really a hub of economic activities. It is a major growth pole if we put an airport there to drive infrastructural growth”, he promised.
“We have to be able to decide for ourselves whether the need for the airport can be justified when you have Accra, you have Kumasi, you have Takoradi, you have Tamale whether on the coast with Accra’s presence there’s the need for an additional airport,” Nana Addo said.
“We have over 300 achievements in the first three years. If you look at the manifesto, you will see that we have achieved 80 percent of our promises. That is massive for any government in its first term. When you look at these achievements, you realise that sector by sector we have really performed much better than the previous NDC government.
