Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Ghanaian vice president, recently observed ongoing construction on the 71-kilometer Bunjai-Fufulso road in the Savannah Region. The project, worth GH 273.5 million, began in 2020 and is scheduled to be finished in 2023.

Mawusi Limited, a Ghanaian construction company, is managing the development of the Bunjai-Fufulso road. The inspection of the Bunjai-Fufulso road formed part of the two-day tour of the Vice President to the Savannah Region.

Remarks on the Bunjai-Fufulso road project

The completion of the project, according to Dr. Bawumiaw, who spoke to the media after the inspection, will make travel simple for residents of the Savannah Region.

According to him, this would be the shortest road traveling to Salaga on the Yapei side of the Savannah Region. Additionally, it would serve as a connecting road between Salaga in the East Gonja District and Yapei to Damongo, the regional center of Savannah. He claimed that the enormous distance between Damongo and Salaga would be reduced.

He said, “After the road’s completion one would not travel all the way from Tamale to Salaga again.”

The conclusion of the Bunjai-Fufulso road project was extremely important to the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo administration, Dr. Bawumia continued. He reassured them that the government was ready to help them with infrastructure development. Furthermore, he stated that it was the government’s goal to hasten the growth of the new area. However, the Vice President urged the contractor to expedite work on the road since it was important to the government.
