Located in Trede, this site holds significance as it was where the President initially inaugurated the projects.
The inspection revealed that although the projects are advancing steadily, they face certain challenges.
“The projects are progressing steadily, albeit with some challenges. 45 of them have been encouraged to finish civil works before this year is over, looking at the progress of work,” he said.
During the inspection, it was also disclosed that three contractors have been terminated due to their failure to meet the required standards.
Despite these setbacks, the Minister of Information expressed optimism, stating, “We can do this. Let’s keep at it.”
