President Akufo-Addo has said negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will delay the completion of some major projects of the government.
According to the President, part of the conditionality with IMF could lead to disruption in some of the government’s infrastructure programmes.
At a meeting with the Western Regional House of Chiefs at the Jubilee House on Monday, President Akufo-Addo assured that even though there will be delays, his government will definitely complete the projects before leaving office.
“We need to ensure that all capital expenditure projects are completed, but there will be some temporary delays while we are making the agreements with the IMF, and that is what we are experiencing now but at the end of the day we will get an arrangement that allows us to continue the projects.”
It is believed that some of the capital projects that could be affected include the construction of the National cathedral and Agenda 111.
President Akufo-Addo has made the assurance that he will complete the national Cathedral project before leaving office.
In his visit at the construction site earlier, the President called for support from the Christian community to enable him fulfil the promise he made to God.
He said that, “as I have said before, the National Cathedral will not just be another monument adorning the skyline of Accra, it will be a rallying point for the entire Christian community to come together and worship… I am therefore committed to working with the Board of Trustees to ensure the completion of this project to the glory of God.”
