Following concerns over the absence of road projects for the Volta Region in the 2020 budget, Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo says there was a mistake in the document.
“It was obviously a mistake,” the Minister explained on the Citi Breakfast Show on Thursday noting that he was also taken aback by the omission.
A Deputy Finance Minister, Charles Adu Boahen, yesterday also said he was surprised about the omission of the Volta Region in the distribution of the road projects in the 2020 budget.
Mr. Osafo-Maafo said he has since conferred with the sector minister who confirmed that there was indeed a list of Volta Region roads.
“When I also saw it, I asked myself, how could it be because there were 15 regions instead of 16 and I asked him [the sector minister] and he said we have a whole list for the Volta Region.”
Mr. Osafo-Maafo also reminded that the Eastern Corridor road was due to receive attention in 2020.
