KADJEBI DCE EXPRESS GRATITUDE TO COCOBOD FOR STARTING EASTERN CORRIDOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION

Date: 28th May 2020

Kadjebi DCE express gratitude To COCOBOD for starting Eastern Corridor road construction:

Mr Maxwell Kofi Asiedu, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Kadjebi in the Oti Region has expressed his profound appreciation to the management of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) for awarding contracts for the construction of the Hohoe to Jasikan and the Have to Hohoe roads, under the cocoa roads construction programme.

The two stretches of road together form a vast and critical portion of the eastern corridor roads, Mr Asiedu noted. It is an important route which connects the region to other parts of the country, yet, for many years it has not been given the needed attention, till now.

The Kadjebi DCE said this when he accompanied the Chief Executive of COCOBOD, Hon. Joseph Boahen Aidoo, to visit a 19-acre cocoa farm at Kadjebi Konsuaso, which belongs to 24-year-old Komla Adjei, who disclosed during the visit, that he inherited the farm from his deceased father.

Mr Asiedu was surefooted that when completed, it will ease the difficulties that motorists face when using the road, this includes the trucks which bring cocoa to COCOBOD’s warehousing facilities in the south. He, however, requested that other connecting roads which go deep into the communities should be considered during the next round of the award of contracts.

The two road projects are being constructed using a co-financing mechanism. The stretch from Hohoe to Jasikan will be completed in two years, while that from Have to Hohoe will take three years to complete.
