The COVID-19 pandemic was a major cause of the temporary delays in the Keta Port Projects, according to Mr. Makafui Woanyah, Chairman of the Volta Regional Branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He claimed that the pandemic stalled the majority of the processes, particularly foreign participation, which hindered the progress while maintaining the project was still in motion.

According to him, certain procedures, such as those outlined in contracts and other documents, must be followed.

Historically, such large projects took decades to complete from conception to completion, but the government was committed to finishing the Port project in a record amount of time, according to Mr. Woanyah, who made these remarks at a press conference.

The Regional Chairman stated that the project's Chief Executive Officer's appointment was made in order to streamline the procurement and other procedures for the upcoming construction phase.

He explained that the issuance of an Executive Instrument designating the Keta area as a port zone opened actions such as inviting foreign investment following the completion of feasibility studies, advertising and publishing for the expression of interest, and receiving approval from Parliament of a budget outline to build an office complex.

He questioned why they must permit them to carry out the Keta Port project in accordance with the government's plan when it was the MP and the NDC who had held the executive positions of this country the longest since independence without having thought of such a project.

According to Mr. Woanyah, the Keta Port project would be finished just like other government projects.

He claimed that an 85 million euro Keta Water Supply and Rehabilitation project for Southern Volta, which started in April 2021 and is expected to be finished at the end of the year, was being carried out by the NPP government.

"Phase three of the five-District Water Supply Scheme, a project funded by Austria and costing 110.5 million pounds, is another ongoing project impacted by COVID-19. ".

The Volta region's residents are benefited by a number of projects in all industries, according to him.
