Nana Ohene Acquah, the Odikro (community head), said the bad nature of the road was making things uncomfortable for them.

He spoke of the difficulty of transporting cocoa and other farm produce to the marketing centres.

Making the appeal through the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Coaltar, he indicated that the situation was becoming a huge disincentive to farming and must not be allowed to continue.

He again pleaded with the Cocobod for the supply of improved cocoa seedlings to assure them of increased crop yield and returns.

He said many of the farmers were eager to expand their farm and needed to be supported.
