Accra, Feb. 28, GNA –
The Ministry of Roads and Highways has urged the public to ignore the false news circulating
on social media platforms that the
Government cannot continue with road construction this year because of the
global Coronavirus outbreak.
The statement in
circulation attributed the false information to the Sector Minister, Mr Kwasi
A statement issued
by the Public Relations Unit of the Ministry, and copied to the Ghana News
Agency, on Friday, however, said no such statement had been made by the sector
Minister or any other official from the Ministry.
It must, therefore,
be treated with the utmost contempt that it deserved.
There were ongoing
road projects throughout the country, it emphasised, and assured citizens of
the Ministry’s commitment to make 2020, the Year of Roads.
