The Concerned Citizens of Tarkwa-Nsuaem has observed keenly the rapid rehabilitation works by the Anglogold Ashanti Iduapriem Mine, Tarkwa on Saturday, 30th May, 2020 through its Sustainability Department ably headed by Mr. Stephen Adjei, Senior Manager, Sustainability.

Anglogold Ashanti, through its Sustainability Department has over the past three years offered this support to the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipal Assembly as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, (CSR) We can confirm with a letter signed and copied to Anglogold Ashanti by Hon Gilbert Kennedy Asmah, erstwhile MCE for Tarkwa-Nsuaem requesting the company to assist the Municipal Assembly with Graders, Spent Ore and Tipper trucks to help with the grading and reshaping of the Tamso junction, DVLA road, Wassa Agona and Simpa roads respectively.

These were contained in a Press statement issued by the group’s Public Affairs Directorate on Saturday after the leadership paid a working visit to the aforementioned project sites.

Mr. Adjei, we are informed subsequently sanctioned the letter on Friday, 29th May, 2020 directing one of their site Contractors by name Maxmass to fix the aforementioned damaged stretch of road to ease vehicular traffic.

Sources close to Anglogold Ashanti indicate that Hon Gilbert Ken Asmah initiated the process some months ago. The leadership of Concerned Citizens of Tarkwa has the pleasure to commend Hon Asmah for the good works, Mr. Stephen Adjei too for his continuous cooperation and support towards the growth and development of Wassaman and Municipal Urban Roads Engineer for his guidance and contribution towards the rehabilitation works.

We also want to extend special commendations to the Traditional Authorities too for their efforts in making the construction a success.

Concerned Citizens of Tarkwa-Nsuaem wish to call on other benevolent organisations, Civil society groups, Churches to all help in this regard to make Tarkwa-Nsuaem a model one.

The interesting thing is that the workers engaged on the road rehabilitation are local based. The reshaping and grading shall reduce travel time, reduce traffic congestion, increase access to social amenities and markets, reduce the cost of transportation, and increase economic activities along the route.

Drivers will have value for money by not spending so much on tyres and spare parts due to pot holes which caused lots of havoc.
