Residents of Amakyebare, a community in the Atwima Nwabiagya North constituency in the Ashanti Region, have called on the government and the district assembly to help fix the road networks in the area.

According to them, the deplorable nature of the roads and bridges in the community could force the people to boycott the December 07 elections.

Nana Osei Kwame, Gyaasehene of the town told the Ghana News Agency that in-spite of several petitions to the Atwima-Nwabiagya North District Assembly, the road remained unattended to.

He said the only bridge on River Offin, which crossed the community had become a death trap, forcing farmers to abandon their farms, especially during rainy seasons.

Some drivers who also spoke to the GNA said the muddy nature of the roads, during rainfall made it difficult for them to convey passengers and goods to their destinations in the area.

They called on the government to fix the road to ease the burden of the people.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
