Residents in the Sissala West district in the Upper West region are calling on the government and authorities last week Saturday to help fix roads in the community in order to ease vehicular movement from one town to another.
According to the residents, the nature of the roads within the vicinity has impacted negatively on the lives of the people around the area.
They further stated that they are completely cut off in many ways, transporting farm produce to market centres, accessing good health centres has been a challenge due to deplorable state of roads.
In an interview with thenewgh.com, the District Chief Executive of the area Hon. Aisha Batong Hor, lamented that the bad nature of roads in the community has really affected the people negatively and has become a death trap.
“Sometimes pregnant women dies on their way to hospital due to bad roads, my people are completely cut off their normal daily businesses due to bad roads “ she lamented. For how long can the people of Sissala West go through this?
“I can’t watch my people to suffer any longer, I have tried all my possible best but to no avail, we are part of Ghana and there is the need for us to enjoy developmental projects such as roads, hospitals among others,” she further stated.
Some residents therefore called on the government to come to their aid with immediate effect.
