President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has the cut sod for construction of Jamestown Fishing harbour.

The project which is being built with a Chinese grant of 60 million dollars will provide jobs for the youth.

The President has also inaugurated the National reconstructive plastic surgery and burns centre at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

The centre which cost two million dollars was funded by the GNPC foundation.

At a separate ceremonies in Accra on second day of Greater Accra regional tour, President Akufo-Addo expressed worry over the state of the Korle-bu maternity ward.

The Jamestown Fishing harbour project is in three major parts, involves the dredging of about 118,000 cubic meters harbour basin and shipping channels; construction of hydraulic structures composed of berths, Seawall and a break water; and construction of administration, production and supporting facilities, including an office building, kindergarten, trading market, processing area, commercial area and other production and supporting facilities.

The project is expected to enhance the productivity of the fisher folks and create about 1,000 job opportunities for the teeming youth in the community.

Since 1965, there has been five different sod cutting but the project could not take off.


President Akufo-Addo was optimistic of the success of the project.

He thanked the Chinese government for the 60 million dollar grant and called for support of the indigene in putting up the structure.

President Akufo-Addo said his administration’s development agenda for Ghana is not driven by partisan politics but to bring development to all of Ghana.

At the Korle-Bu Teching Hospital, President Akufo-Addo was sad about the of the maternity ward. He was quickly assured by the Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyemang Manu, that funds has been secured for its renovation.

He inaugurated the new burns centre and donated his November salary of Twenty Five Thousand Ghana cedis (GHS 25,000 ) to the Korle Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Fund as part of his contribution to resourcing the Fund.

President Akufo-Addo earlier inaugurated the new AMA head office.

The three-storey edifice is located within the commercial enclave of the city which houses the Octagon, Accra City Hotel, Mövenpick Hotel, National theatre ,the Kinbu Secondary Technical School, the Assembly Press and the vibrant Tema station.
