“We voted massively for NPP and President Akufo-Addo because they promised us good roads but after voting massively for the party we have been taken for granted” they said

The above are some of the words of aggrieved residents of Atwima Techiman, Boko and Twede, Foase in the Kwadaso Municipality and Atwima Kwanwoma area who have blocked all the roads linking the Kumasi Metropolis following several complaints.

The Atwima Techiman to Twede road was awarded to Contractor Asabea Construction Limited in 2018 and work was stalled in 2019 for reasons best known to the government

The residents have complained bitterly over poor road network in the communities which is affecting security but authorities appear indifferent to their plight despite recorded cases of robbery and murder.

Passengers and drivers were on Tuesday left stranded after the roads were blocked by the angry residents to express their displeasure over what is a deliberate neglect of their concerns by the government

Some of the aggrieved residents in an interview with Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo said “We will block the road today and tomorrow till government addresses our concerns.

According to the residents, “We are tired of assurances from our DCEs, MPs and government. We will fight till we win”.

“We voted massively for NPP and President Akufo-Addo because they promised us good roads but after voting massively for the party we have been taken for granted” they said

Meanwhile the Assembly Member for Atwima Techiman Dekyemuoso Electoral Area Hon David Asare expressed worry about businesses which have been collapsed due to the deplorable road network.

“Every week we record not at least two robberies because of the road network. We are calling on the government to address our grievances or face our wrath” He threatened.
