The Deputy Minister went on the tour in the company of the Municipal Chief Executive of Tarkwa-Nsuaem, Mr Benjamin Kessie, Mr Ebenezer Annor-Kwarfo, Municipal Chief Engineer and some constituency executives of the New Patriotic Party.
She commended Mr George Mireku Duker, MP for Tarkwa-Nsuaem constituency for working hard to ensure that roads within his constituency were motorable for residents to go about their daily activities smoothly.
The Deputy Minister appealed to the citizenry to be patient as the government delivered on its promises regarding roads in the Western Region and the country at large.
