The traffic prone areas in the country will no longer experience such congestions again if President Mahama gets a second term in office.

This is because if President Mahama gets the opportunity to govern Ghana for a second term he has promised to install sophisticated traffic lights in the urban areas.

President Mahama was speaking at an event at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Accra today (Tuesday) to highlight the key areas of the 2016 manifesto of the NDC.

He said “in order to ease traffic in the major cities, we will introduce intelligent traffic signal systems”
