President Akufo-Addo will today [Tuesday] May 14, 2019, begin a six-day tour of the newly created Oti, North East and Savanna Regions.

The President will start from Jasikan in the Oti Region where he is expected to cut sod for the construction of the Jasikan-Dodi Pepesu road project captured under the list of projects to be completed through the two-billion-dollar Sinohydro Bauxite Barter Transaction, which the Government signed with the Sinohydro Corporation Group of China.

The Government has received the first tranche, amounting to $646 million for the construction of roads, interchanges and bridges across the country to improve the movement of people, goods and services.

The President will also visit the proposed site for the Regional Coordinating Council at Dambai, the regional capital, and attend a durbar of the Chiefs and people of Krachi in the Krachi/Nchumuru constituency.

President Akufo-Addo will then move to the North East Region on Thursday to begin day 4 of the tour with a durbar of Chiefs and people of Nalerigu at the place of Nayiri Naa Bohugu Abdulai Mahami Sheriga.

Whilst there, he will inspect a water project, and visit the proposed site for the Regional Coordinating Council at Nalerigu in the Nalerigu/Gambaga constituency.
