MP Berekum West

In a brief ceremony held at Jinjini in the Brekum West Constituency of the Bono Region, Minister Asenso Boakye, overseeing Roads and Highways, inaugurated the much-awaited BEREKUM-SAMPA Road project on April 2nd, 2024.

This crucial road, spanning 120 kilometers from Sunyani Dumasua through Berekum, Jinijini, Japekrom, Drobo, Suma, to Sampa, will undergo rehabilitation by Rango Engineering contractors.

With an estimated cost of $125 million or 1.6 million Ghana cedis, the project aims to rehabilitate the road with an asphaltic overlay, adhering to specified standards. Assuring the region's inhabitants of timely and quality completion within twenty-four months, the Minister called upon communities to support the contractor to ensure successful project delivery for the nation's benefit.

In response, Nana Asare Baffour II, Chief of Jinijini and Akyempem Hene of the Berekum traditional council, welcomed the development. He praised government initiatives like "Planting for Food and Jobs" for significantly benefiting the region, particularly through subsidies on farm inputs and the distribution of cashew seedlings under the "Planting for Export and Rural Development" program, catering to the predominant cashew farming community.

Addressing concerns about government's commitment to infrastructure development in Berekum, Hon. Kwaku Agyenim Boateng, Member of Parliament for Berekum West, clarified that the government has nearly awarded all road projects in the area to contractors, dispelling any doubts about its dedication to the region's progress.
