Residents of Amakyebare, a community in the Atwima Nwabiagya North constituency of Ashanti Region have called on government and it developmental agencies to fix their bad roads with immediate effect.
According to the residents, poor nature of their roads, abandoned School and a dilapidated death trap bridge in the town could force them to forgo the impending December 7 elections or vote against the siting NPP government if the Government do not attend to their needs.
Some drivers who trade on the roads also said, the roads become very muddy and unmotorable whenever it rains as a result, drivers are reluctant to ply the roads and the bad state of the roads make it difficult for them to cater well for their families since a lot of the monies they acquire are being used for the maintenance of their cars.
According to Amakyebare Gyaasehene, Nana Osei Kwame, a lot of petitions on the challenge have been forwarded to the DCE of Atwima Nwabiagya North, Madam Rebecc Yeboah and MP for the Constituency, Mr Benito Owusu Bio but the roads remain erratic.
However, Nana Akwasi Owusu, Amakyebare Baamuhene added that,the only bridge which served the farmers to cross River Offin to harvest their crops has become a death trap which put the lives of residents at risk when it was abandoned for years, Most of them have decided to despise the upcoming December 7 elections because they do not see the need to vote for a political party while they are ploughing on life threatening roads.
