The Omanhene of the Sunyani Traditional Area, Nana Bosoma Asor Nkrawiri II, has said criticisms of the Mahama administration for borrowing too much are unjustified.

He explained that there was clear evidence that loans contracted by the government were being used judiciously, for which reason the government must be commended, instead of being condemned.

The Omanhene made the point when President John Dramani Mahama called on him at his palace in Sunyani yesterday.
The President was in the Brong Ahafo Region on an official visit. Nana Nkrawiri commended the President for working very hard to ensure the development of Sunyani, noting that the Sunyani Ring Road currently under construction was an example of the development taking place in Sunyani.

He said the Sunyani Traditional Council had decided to name the road after President Mahama.

Responding, President Mahama thanked the Omanhene and other chiefs in the area for the support they continued to give him as he worked to ensure fair distribution of development projects in every corner of the country.
He said the government had prioritised the ring road project and would see to its completion.
