‘Fix Our Roads or We Demonstrate’
Residents of Dome-Kwabenya in Accra have called on the Member of Parliament for the area, Sarah Adwoa Safo, to initiate processes to reconstruct the deplorable road network in the constituency.
According to the residents, although the responsibility to reconstruct the roads is not in the hands of the lawmaker, Ms Safo should use her influence in government to get the roads in good shape.
Ms Safo is also the Minister of State at the presidency in charge of Public Procurement.
A resident in the area, Nana Ama, who has lived in the vicinity for the past nine years told Chief Jerry Forson on Ghana Yensom on Accra100.5FM on Tuesday, 18 April that car owners and commercial drivers have been visiting the mechanic on a daily basis due to the deplorable roads.
“We know she is a lawmaker and does not construct roads but her party is in power now, and, so, she can use her influence to put the roads in good shape,” Nana Ama said.
She further indicated that the residents will stage a demonstration against the government if the roads are not reconstructed
“If she doesn’t act swiftly some of us will lead a demonstration against the government,” she said.
