According to the Nsawam Adoagyiri legislator, Chiefs, Member of Parliament and the Municipal Chief Executive of the area where he seeks to revamp railway network should be consulted, as the Minister has had stakeholders’ consultation in some regions like the Western and the Brong Ahafo Regions.

In an interview with the MP, he indicated that the Minister had given him assurance that after his Northern Region stakeholders meeting he would be in Nsawam.

“We have slept as a nation over the years, when it comes to railway development for a while, so one has to be measured in terms of expectations from him and his ministry. This is new and the first Minister for the Ministry”.

Mr. Frank Annor Dompreh noted that if he is to score the Minister he would give him sixty marks, we can do more. In other jurisdictions railway has advanced in technology, moving away from locomotives.
