President John Atta Mills has cut the sod for work to begin on a 32.4- kilometre road linking Berekum to Seikwa in the Tain District.

The project, estimated at GH¢43 million and expected to be completed within a year, would be developed into a bituminous surface level by J. Adom Limited, a Sunyani-based road and building construction firm.

The President assured Ghanaians that the government would not renege on its promise to ensure fair and equitable distribution of national resources.

He asked for total support of every Ghanaian, irrespective of tribal and political affiliation, to enable the country to develop socially and economically.

Addressing a joint durbar of chiefs and people of Seikwa, Badu and Nsawkaw at Seikwa at which he cut the sod for the road project to begin on Tuesday, President Mills said the government existed to use political power to advance the cause of the people and not to lord over people for selfish interests.

Mr. Joe Gidisu, the Minister of Roads and Highways, said “the road has been a living landmark in the area”, hence the President had made it a priority project.

He expressed the hope that when completed the road would open up the economic potentials of the Tain District and its environs.
