Inusah Fuseini blames frequent armed robbery in Upper East Region on bad road network

The Former Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini has attributed the cause of frequent armed robbery cases in the Upper East Region poor road networks in the area.

According to the Former Law Maker, roads in the region particularly the construction and completion of Bolgatanga-Bawku-Polmakom road is long over due, and this has resulted in the rampant robbery cases in the region.

Reacting to the Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s list of achievements chalked by the Akufo Addo’s led government in its 1st term on ‘DayBreak Upper East’ Programme on A1 Radio, he said, “I started the Bolgatanga-Bawku-Polmakom road and it was to take 18 months to complete. Today, it’s no longer 18 months but rather 4 years plus and it’s not yet competed.”

He said, “We thought if government inherits another government, then the projects must be allowed to continue and the people of Bolga-Bawku will enjoy some relief. Haven’t you made any connection between the nature of the roads and the prevalence of armed robberies in the Upper East Region?. And that’s what Bawumia should be addressing.”

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia after listing about 85 achievements in his government’s 1st term on his Facebook wall, gave a firm indication of a smooth take-off by the Akufo-Addo government to implement its second term Programmes after the approval of its 2021 budget. Dr. Bawumia said, the government has done the largest investment in infrastructure including roads, railways and schools than any government in its first term in the fourth republic.

Mr. Fuseini however said, the construction and completion of the Bolgatanga-Bawku-Polmakom road has delayed making it a breeding atmosphere for frequent robbery attacks.

He therefore urged Dr. Bawumia to concentrate on his presidential ambition instead of touting on empty promises.
