He made this known at the Town Hall Meeting at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences in Accra on Tuesday, August 18.
Bawumia further revealed that the Akufo-Addo administration is adopting a two-way approach towards infrastructural development in the country.
This approach he said, makes it possible to cover all persons in the country under the project.
“Our focus has been to provide infrastructure for all. That has been the focus. And our approach to infrastructural development in Ghana has been two-fold," he said.
Bawumia noted that the first approach is to provide the infrastructural needs of the poor and deprived communities at the micro level like water, toilets, clinics, electricity, markets which according to him, had been ignored by many governments.
The second approach he revealed is to provide for the broader infrastructural needs of the economy at the macro level to drive economic growth.
