Contrary to the public perception regarding the completion of the Saglemi Housing Project, the Minister of Works and Housing, Hon. Francis Asenso-Boakye had reassured the good people of Ghana of the completion of the project.
He explained that the Ministry, as part of measures to complete the project, tasked the Ghana Institution of Surveyors to conduct a cost and technical audit of the contract executed by the contractors in the context of the variety of agreements and commitments made by the parties to the project.
Upon completion of the audit, the Minister indicated that the Ghana Institution of Surveyors estimated approximately an amount of US$32 million would be needed to complete the project.
Hon. Asenso-Boakye who was briefing the media on the Saglemi Housing Project at the Ministry assured of the Ministry’s commitment to securing the resources needed for completing the project, regardless of the outcome of the ongoing criminal investigations.
“The doors of the Ministry are open to all and we commit to engaging with any entity or entities willing to do so in truth, sincerity and fairness. We serve the cause of the people of Ghana and we will not renege on that, so help us, God,” he said.
