Residents of Cape Coast who have been hoping for the construction of a new harbour since the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) won re-election in 2020 may be disappointed.

That infrastructure project, according to President Akufo-Addo, was never on the list of commitments presented to him for his second term.

“The commitment was never to a harbour; it was to a landing site,” he explained on Eagle FM in Cape Coast on Monday.

The facts, on the other hand, show that the President’s claims are false.

On the first day of a two-day tour of the region, President Akufo-Addo spoke with Babara Obeng Dwamena Mensah on the ‘Kokroko’ Morning Show on Monday morning.

When asked about the status of a promise to build an airport and a port in Cape Coast, the President stated, “The commitment was never to (build) a port.” It led to a landing page. It is extremely important. And you read the NPP manifesto for the 2020 election on page 88. It’s crystal clear.”

He then went on to list landing site projects that the government had initiated in the Central region, going on to say that the party had promised to build similar landing sites rather than a harbour in Cape Coast.

“In terms of the harbour, we have to be clear in our minds; we never committed ourselves… I never stated that I intended to build a harbour in Cape Coast. “I said I was going to build a landing page, and that it would begin next year,” he explained.
