Residents of Agape; a suburb in the Anyaa Sowutuom Constituency in the Greater Accra Region have vented anger towards the Government, to express their frustration about bad roads in the area.
The residents who marched on the streets hoisted placards with inscriptions that communicated their frustrations. Some read, “Our sidechicks doesn’t visit us anymore because of the devastating nature of the road”.
According to residents, the bad nature of the roads in the area causes workers trek miles about 20 to 30 minutes every day to nearby towns like Sowutuom, Lomnava and other adjoining communities to board commercial vehicles to their various destinations.
One Mr Twumasi Ampofo discloses, “The stress associated with their daily trekking gets people so tired that they end up dozing off at work”.
“Many of the residents sleep when they get to their offices because they spend long hours trekking to catch a vehicle.”
“As residents, we don’t know if we have a Member of Parliament. We’ve been seeing his posters around but we don’t know him as our MP, “If we have an MP, why has he not come to our aid, especially when the government he belongs to declared a year of roads.”
