Pressure On Me To Fix Poor Roads Unbearable-Chief To Gov’t
Nana Stephen Owusu-Nsiah, the Maawerehene of Berekum who is traditionally known as Nana Owusu Effah III has lamented the poor roads in his traditional area.
The traditional ruler speaking in an interview with Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm said he is being haunted by his people over the poor nature of their roads.
The chief said all efforts to get the roads fixed have proved futile hence appealing to the government to take steps to repair the roads.
The chief said residents daily knock on his door lamenting the poor nature of the roads.
He said his response to them is that the roads are supposed to fix by either the assemblies of the MP for the area.
To him, such individuals shave failed the people because they have not been able to repair the poor roads in Berekum.
Nana Stephen Owusu-Nsiah noted he had to at a point write a petition to admonish the MCE and the MP of the area to take steps to address the concerns of the residents.
”The roads are in a poor state. Majority of the people are farmers and the poor nature of the roads are depriving them of their livelihoods.”
He said sometimes, the residents blame him, because they believe he held positions in the past, which should make it easier for him to lobby to have the roads fixed.
