Government has agreed to secure a US$250 million loan facility to reshape the Bole-Sawla-Wa road, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Majority Leader in Parliament, has said.
He said US$150 million had been secured as the first part and that the Roads and Highways Minister, Mr Kwesi Amoako Atta, would perform the commissioning for work to start on the road, which had developed terrible potholes.
Mr Mensah-Bonsu said this at the thanksgiving mass for the Speaker of Parliament, Mr Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, at Sombo, his hometown, in the Nadowli-Kaleo District of the Upper West Region.
He said the deal was agreed through his collaboration with the Minority Leader, Mr Haruna Iddrisu.
Mr Mensah-Bonsu also disclosed that government in the next couple of months would expand school feeding to every basic school in the country.
