Residents of five communities in the Nkwanta South Municipality have threatened to boycott any elections in the area if the road from Nkwanta connecting these communities is not fixed.

The communities are Keri, Odomi, Gekrong, Pawa and Kue.

Some drivers and motor riders who ply the road told the Ghana News Agency that they had decided to park their vehicles to prevent them from wasting money unnecessarily on maintenance and servicing.

Mr Jonas Gbedenyo, the Assembly member for the Keri South Electoral area, said he had written letters to the authorities about the poor road network, but nothing was done about it.

He said farmers in the five communities were unable to bring their farm produce to the Municipal capital for sale.

“Last year somewhere in September, the bridge connecting Keri and Gekrong was damaged to the extent that all the visitors who came home to mark the annual yam festival in Keri could not return to their destinations on schedule.

The people, however, took it upon themselves to fill that portion with stones and some gravel to make it possible for motorbikes to carry the visitors back to their destinations.

“This year due to the start of the rains, the road is moving from bad to worse,” he said.

Mr Gbedenyo stated that if nothing was done about the road in the next one month, no car or motorcycle would be able to use the road and that could be disastrous for the inhabitants of these communities.
