The Member of Parliament for Suame constituency, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has toured communities in his constituency to ascertain the nature of roads in a bid to fashion out ways of getting government to fix it.
Among the entourage that joined him to inspect the roads in his constituency comprise the Assembly members, Municipal Chief Executive and road engineer’s planners to have a fair idea on the state of the roads.
He explained that the NPP government will very soon fix the bad nature of the roads in the Suame constituency, he said most of the roads were not attended to by the previous government.
“When the Akufo-Addo government came to power, God been good, I have spoken to Roads Minister, Amoako Attah, who has agreed to come and fix Suame roads for us” he said this in an interview when he toured some parts of his constituency in Kumasi.
He also added that former Roads Minister under erstwhile NDC government, Alhaji Sulemana, also helped construct key roads at some communities in Suame, but two to three years on, the roads that were constructed are now in a bad state.
Suame Constituency in the Ashanti Region of Ghana has one of the poorest road in the region, with residence not happy about the poor nature of the road.
Communities such as Breman east and west, Kronum Kwapra, Abusuakruwa, Suame old and new, Maakro are all in a bad shape.
The dusty nature of the road is nothing good to write home about, which has been a major worry for the Majority Leader in Parliament.
He also disclosed that some areas in the constituency such as Abusuakruwa through to Barekese, Akuko spece and some parts of Bantama, all totaling 2.5kilometres has been rolled with asphalt overlays.
He maintained that the NPP government is committed to fixing the roads and adds that currently only Asawase have the best of roads compared to other constituencies like Oforikrom, Bantaman, Tafo and Suame, because the previous government concentrated only on Asawase for best reasons known to the NDC government.
Furthermore, he indicated that road fixing is the work of central government and district assemblies, MPs can only lobby for such projects he therefore urged the presiding member and all the assembly members to give him the maximum support to do a better job.
