The National Demicratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament(MP) for Tain constituency of the Bono Region, Hon. Adama Sulumana, has appealed to the Road and highways Minister, Hon. Amoaku Attah to ensure the constructor move on site to start work as promised.
The Highways Minister promised that construction of the roads in the Tain constituency would begin by the close of this month.
Mr. Amoaku Attah made the statement on the floor of the house few weeks ago when answering questions from the MP of the area Hon. Adama Sulemana.
In an interview with thealhajj.com at the Parliament house in Accra on Friday, the MP enumerated the number of bad road networks that have toll on the life of farmers in the District.
The NDC scribe pointed out that road from Badu to Nsoko and Seikwa to Nsoko was in terrible state.
He said Tain constituency was largely a farming community that depend heavily on the export of its farm produce.
Due to the nature of the roads, the MP said farm produce got rotten after harvesting, a situation that increase the plight of farmers in areas.
Hon. Sulemana indicates that Tain is one of the largest farming communities in the country that contribute heavily in the Ghanaian economy, meanwhile, the District also seen a big neglect in infrastructure development.
“Am hoping the hon. Minsters honours his promise to ensure the contractor move on site to begin work the the stretch of the road”, he stated.
Additionally, ” major highways that suppose to be transporting food stuff to the big cities are all in bad shapes including the feeder roads”.
Consequently, he revealed also that “the nature of the road compelled drivers to slow down and armed robbers take advantage to rob motorists and market women”.
The NDC member of the legislature noted that this has increased the economic hardship of farmers in the communities.
