Residents of Apam in the Goma West District of the Western Region are the latest to issue a stern warning to the Akufo Addo administration for its lethargic interest in constructing roads in the country.
Angry residents and drivers of Apam have given the government a one-month ultimatum to fix their roads or face their wrath.
The angry residents hit the streets on Tuesday to protest the poor state of roads to the town. Clad in red and chanting war songs, the protestors burnt car tyres to register their displeasure at the government’s attitude towards road infrastructure.
The group also blamed the Member of Parliament for the area Alexander Kojo-Kwom Abban and the District Chief Executive, Bismark Inkoom for being incompetent regarding road infrastructure for the township. The Apam protest is coming in the heels of several similar protests across the country. The last notable one was at Juaboso in the Ashanti Region where residents protesting poor roads hindering their transportation of cocoa beans to the ports threatened to smuggle their beans to Ivory Coast if the Akufo Addo government remains sleeping on its job regarding road construction.
