President John Dramani Mahama has debunked claims that the cost involved in the project of the Kasoa Interchange has been inflated.
The 172 million dollar project which was opened yesterday comprises of the construction of 200 meter Interchange Bridge, a new roundabout, drainage, lighting system, 33-kilometre Amasaman-Kasoa road and and 20-kilometer road in the Ga South municipality and Kasoa.
Reacting to the said claims being made by the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), President Mahama in an address at the commissioning of the project insisted that such claims be disregarded.
When you are a political quantity surveyor and you look at Kasoa interchange and you say it is too expensive, what are you talking about? You haven’t seen the scope of works, you are haven’t seen the bill of quantities, you haven’t done a survey of building materials around here and you are able to judge that the cost is too expensive, he quizzed.
