Residents of Wusuta Kpebe; a fishing community in the North Dayi District of the Volta region, have called on government to rehabilitate their bad roads to facilitate smooth accessibility and development projects in the community.
The residents in an interview with Anthony Isaac Princewil Egbeako, a freelance journalist expressed their disappointment over government’s refusal to fix the roads; a situation that has proven very costly over the years.
They explained that the bad nature of the road has been a threat to both drivers and passengers who ply the road. They say the road becomes totally unmotorable during the rainy season.
The residents, who are predominantly farmers complain that they are sometimes cut off from market centers where they sell their produce; a situation that causes their food products to perish and causes them untold hardship.
Fishermen in the area also appealed to the government to help them with premix fuel to help sustain their fishing activities.
Generally, the road linking Kpong and Kpando are extremely bad and a disincentive to development of the affected areas. Residents who ply those roads say the various governments have turned deaf ears to their numerous complains and appealed for the road to be fixed in order to support the development of the region.
