The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Takoradi Constituency, Mr Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah has opined that the economic fortunes of Ghana was improving after it suffered setbacks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia – Ukrain war.
He said following the innovative, hard work and good policies put in place by President Akufo-Addo and his able team, the promises the New Patriotic Party (NPP) made to Ghanaians during the electioneering campaign were carefully being pursued.

Mr Darko-Mensah made the remark during a community engagement at the Zenith Electoral Area to address some concerns of the residents and the economy.
He disclosed that the Western Region was benefiting from numerous roads which were ongoing across the length and breadth of the region and cited the Tarkwa – Agona Ahanta road, and the Takoradi – Sekondi road among others.
