SUHUM DESERVES BETTER ROAD NETWORKS
Road is a key contributor in building a country’s economic strength as it helps to commute and transport both human and natural resources as part of it’s economic activities in the country.
In any misfortune that will force this interaction from fostering comes back to hit hard on the strength of the economy and this was evidently clear when the Covid 19 lockdown was imposed and later lifted with the reason that Ghana’s economy can’t withstand restricting people from commuting due to the informal nature of our economy(graphic.com.gh).
It is against this background that we see the current road situation very worrying in a constituency which is one of the high valued towns in Eastern region and the country at large which is struggling to amass more economic strengths for the development of the town but has been left at a deplorable state.
We see this current trend of deplorable roads as a retrogression of development in the constituency because the NDC government from 2008 to 2016 saw a massive improvement of inner city road networks and we would like to mention some few of them just in Suhum township.
Just in Suhum, The NDC gov’t did massive construction of new link roads such as Police station down road link, kibi station road link to Post Office road, Old Goil link to Roman junction road, Okrase road link to the Accra-Kumasi high way, a rehabilitation of Suhum- Adakwa road, Edintrom- Anglican road, Captain Asiedu- Suhum market road, Suhum T-junction road to mention but few. (Credit to the good governance of Hon. Samuel Fletcher-Kwabi & Hon. Margaret Ansei (Magoo) respectfully under the NDC government)
Today, it’s very disheartening seeing all these aforementioned roads wearing off as a result of bad maintenance by the current Npp government as far as the office of the Municipal Chief Executive(MCE), Mrs. Margaret Darko is concerned.
For instance, from the Puma filling station (Suhum hospital junction), to the road that lead to the hospital can best be described as a death trap, and thus, can even cause miscarriage when there is an emergency yet the MCE, Mrs. Margaret Darko is proudly not looking at this sad development.
Also, the Atta Mills bypass road (old Goil link to Roman junction) that brought joy to Suhum drivers for easing traffic in the town after its construction have been left unattended to by Mrs. Margaret Darko (MCE), and thus, has developed huge potholes that can even qualify to be part of the 1 district 1 dam project if it was to be located some where in the Northern region.
The Suhum-Adarkwa road (around the Zongo line); another road which was nicely constructed and tared by the Ndc Government before leaving office but today seeing the MCE as a contributor for destroying that road with her attempt to construct speed rumps, which wasn’t bad but the poor nature of how the rumps was being done have now turn the road to a one way which is being put under pressure due to the heavy cars that use the road and have created potholes on some part and some part too are braking in yet the MCE is sitting aloof and unconcern to this development.
Aside these mentioned roads which is of great concern, virtually, all tared roads in Suhum are in serious deplorable states such as developing potholes, gutters and dugouts.
Amid these facts, we (YoDeC) find it unthinkable for the MCE to fail in maintaining the existing roads if She can’t continue the good developmental work done by her predecessors in constructions and rehabilitating of roads in Suhum, What then is she using the common fund and the internal generated funds of the Municipal for?
We, Young Democratic Cadres (YoDeC) is by this release urging the Suhum MCE to do the needful in relation to the Suhum roads as we are in a suppose “year of roads” because it’s negative impact is affecting the innocent taxpayer.
