A group called Concerned Citizens of Abuakwa North based in Abuakwa North Constituency in the Eastern Region yesterday hit the streets of New Tafo and Anyinasin to protest against the bad roads in the community.
The group led by Mr Wilson Dakudze popularly called Abenbebom and one Mr Kofi Asante
The group displaced placards with inscriptions such as, Where is our share of the road, Remember and keep your promises Mr president, Is Anyinasin not party of Ghana? Why Mr president? Abuakwa North paa nie!!!!!!, Bo Ne B3n Nkuaa, Abuakwa North deserves Better, and among others.
The group complained that, over the years, their road network had deteriorated and that, successive government by the president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who started his political career from the constituency then Abuakwa has failed to listen to their concerns thereby creating untold hardships in Abuakwa North
The deplorable road condition from Opass Junction to Old Tafo Junction, from old Tafo to Anyinasin and from Crig to Nobi has caused a whole lot of damages to human life and properties especially during heavy rains, and that of social and economic life were seriously affected
There has been so many robbery cases on the Anyinasin due to the deplorable states of the road,driving at night is incredibly challenging and unsafe because of the dreadful roads.
Incase of medical and critical emergencies, the condition of the roads constitutes eminent danger that could prevent the police and emergency responders from reaching distressed individuals promptly.
We are therefore sending this signal to the president and the Party NPP which are all card bearering member that they should not think Abuakwa North is the stronghold of the NPP so neither the road is constructed or not we are going to votes for them, this time we shall votes base on achievement and development
Abuakwa North shares boundaries with the Abuakwa blocks are always delay in responding to our plead why? The vice president was here during their delegates conference and promised to discuss with the road minister Hon Amoah Atta which yet we have heard nothing. All what we are saying is Abuakwa North deserves Better from president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo administration.
