President Akufo Addo has admitted to making a mistake about his earlier statement that his administration never promised of constructing a harbour in Cape Coast.
During his tour in the central region, the President interacted with the indigenes via a radio interview. In the interview, Akufo Addo explained that , the constructing of a harbour in the capital of the central region wasn’t part of his promises when he sought for a re-election.
According to the president, the party actually pledged to put up a landing site as captured in the 2020 manifesto and earmarked for execution in 2022.
“I never said I was going to build a harbour in Cape Coast. I said I was going to build a landing site like what I’ve done in these six other places in the Central Region. Cape Coast will also have its landing site, and the construction of that will start next year.”
However it turned out to be false. Page 160 of the document highlights some infrastructure development to be expected when the NPP secures power in the general elections.
Speaking to Kwame Sefa Kayi on Peace FM this morning, the president admitted he made a mistake.
To him, there is already a harbor in Elmina and that its untenable to again have one in Cape Coast.
“Let me confess, I made a mistake on the Cape Coast. Even with the mistake, we have to have a rethink . We can’t not have a harbour in Takoradi and Elmina and have another one in Cape Coast” he respond when the host queried him .
