The Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta says government will dedicate a chunk of its resources into infrastructural developments should Ghanaians renew the president’s mandate for a second term.
Addressing Parliament on Wednesday, Mr. Ofori-Atta said one of government’s key focus will be to invest more in affordable housing across the country.
“In 2021, we will see significant investment in infrastructure, especially affordable housing. These interventions will create more jobs and enhance artisanal skills.”
“A few days ago, my colleague Hon. Atta Akyea and I joined H.E President Akufo-Addo to commission 204 new houses at Tema Community 22. These houses were largely constructed and supervised by local contractors and consultants under the National Mortgage and Housing Fund Scheme (NMHFS). This project was completed in nine-months, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and created over 1,500 jobs,” he noted.
He assured that the government will “Replicate this housing model across the country alongside the agenda 111 district hospitals program.”
