Residents of Assin Asano a 3 kilometers journey from Assin Jakai in the Assin South District in the Central Region of Ghana is complaining bitterly how they have been neglected by the government from having their fair share the national cake since all their problems range from bad road to their bridge that was taken away by a heavy downpour of rain three years ago and it hasn’t been attended till now.
Some of the residents speaking to one Kingdom FM news reporter Anaafi Kokooto they explained that they have been battling with poor road network for almost ten years of which they have tried all their possible best to get the road constructed but none has yield a positive outcome. “We carry our bags of cocoa and walk 3 kilometres distance from Assin Jakai to be scaled since no driver had decided to work on our rough road”.
They disclosed that they have heard in the news that the government has released fund for cocoa roads to be constructed but they don’t understand why they have not receive their share since some nearby communities such as Assin Kruwah, Amoabeng, Framoase, Nyamebekyere, and other communities have gotten their share.
“When it rain heavily our school children can’t return home from school due to flood because the bridge is no more there”. They added.
This has make schooling at the area very difficult and therefore they appealing to their Member of parliament Hon Reverend John Ntsim Fordjour who is also the deputy minister for Education and the acting District Cheif Executive, Honorable Owusu Ambrose to come to their aid”.
