If their requests for the repair of the area’s roads are not met in the next two months, Ashaiman residents claim they would be obliged to protest at the Roads Ministry.
The locals claim that their lives are made intolerably difficult by Ashaiman’s terrible roads.
On Tuesday, October 3, residents of Zenu, New York, and Atadeka, all Ashaiman suburbs in the Greater Accra area, protested about the terrible state of their roads and given the government a two-month deadline to rehabilitate them.
Speaking to reporters following the protest on Tuesday, Assemblyman Freeman Jakpo for the Nii Kometey Electoral region pleaded with the Ministry of Roads and Highways to take them seriously, or they would be forced to march to the ministry after the two-month period had passed.
“Fixing the roads has been a mirage leaving our health and cars at the mercy of the poor roads and so if within two calendar months, we do not see any action of work within the Municipality, we will organise another march to the Ministry of Roads and Highways.”
