W/R: Inchaban-Nkwanta Residents Demonstrate Over Failure To Fix Their Roads

 

 

Residents of Inchaban Nkwanta in the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolis of Western Region have demonstrated over the poor state of the Mpintsin to the Benso roads. They lament the government has failed to fix the roads over the years, despite promises to capture the roads under the Year of roads’ project. Four months after the 'Year

 

of roads' declaration by the Akufo Addo government, residents of the Inchaban Nkwanta, with support from neighbouring communities, burnt car tyres to express their displeasure over deplorable state of their roads. Some protestors complained to the media about how the state of their roads affects their daily activities. We

 

 

have complained about the situation several times and nothing seems to be done about it. We are also really suffering, and we demand that government responds to our calls, one said. We are pleading with government to treat our call too with the urgency it deserves. We have suffered for far too long. Our roads are very bad, and we

 

 

 

 

cannot live in this state any longer, another shared. The Mayor of Sekondi Takoradi, Abdul Mumin Issah, called for calm when he visited scene of the demonstration. He said construction of the road which goes through the Mpintsin Free Zones area has delayed because the Free Zones Board is also not in place yet. He, however, assured that measures are being taken to fix the roads as soon as possible.
