Accra, July 13, GNA – Residents
of Kofi Asare village are appealing to the Member of Parliament and Upper-West
Akyim District Assembly to as a matter of urgency repair the collapsed bridge
to prevent further suffering.

Nana Amankwah, the
Djantua Hene of Adeiso Traditional Council, said the absence of the bridge,
which connects commuters to Asamankese, Adeiso through to Suhum, was affecting
the movement of both persons and vehicles.

He said it was
frustrating when residents, who were mostly farmers, could not transport their
produce to marketing centres due to the collapsed bridge.

He mentioned that
commuters now had to detour in order to avoid the collapsed bridge, lengthening
the time and cost of travel.

The situation has
persisted for a month now.

He said the residents
were predominantly farmers and engaged in production of maize, cassava, cocoa
and other cash crops.

He said the opinion
leaders in the affected communities had informed the Member of Parliament about
the worrying situation.

He said the community
was ready to organise communal labour to support contractors whenever they came
to reconstruct the bridge for them.
