Volta Chief knelt to beg Nana Addo for roads as a result of the bad roads in many parts of the Volta region. The chief of Atebubu did the unthinkable and humble act to help get road projects for his area.
This singular act goes to demonstrate the importance of roads to the people of the Volta region.
Travelling on Ghana’s roads has become a nightmare as the country records more deaths from fatal road accidents.
Ghanaians across the country continue to complain about the poor state of roads in the country.
If a Volta Chief knelt to beg Nana Addo for roads, it tells you are disturbing the situation is in the Volta region.
Former President Jerry Rawlings on Friday, November 15 complained about the deteriorating roads in the Hohoe municipality in the Volta region of Ghana.
The chief went on his knees to plead with President Nana Akufo-Addo to come to the aid of the people of Atebubu.
He asked that the roads in the area be constructed. “Nana Addo, on behalf of the people of Atebubu I beg you to come to our aid and help construct the roads in Bono East,” the chief said.
Drivers in the area also said because of the poor nature of roads in the Atebubu area, they are at the mercy of armed robbers
in the area. The drivers also said they cannot travel at night because the roads are poor.
Residents in the area also expressed frustration over the continual neglect of the area. The NDC had complained bitterly about the sidelining of the Volta region by the government when the 2020 budget was read. The accusation was that, government had neglected the Volta region as no road was mentioned in the budget to be constructed for the region.
