Some residents in the Upper West Regional are quite sceptical about the government’s commitment to fixing the untarred road that connects the Jiapa Municipality to the Sissala East Municipality; the Han-Tumu road.
The residents took to social media to express their discomfort over the government’s inability to commit itself to the construction of the said road.
On Friday, May 13, 2022, the Upper West Regional Minister, took to his Official Facebook page and wrote, “Sod cutting ceremony for the construction of the Tumu – Han road shall take place on Wednesday 25th May 2022 in Tumu.”
But many, who responded to the post, did not take it kindly with the Minister.
Prosper Puo-ire wrote, “maybe sod cutting has become another form of a project. How many sods must they cut on that road?”
Moro Nabie also wrote, “needless, that portion of the road was already under construction until this government came in and halted work on the pretense of doing a value for money audit. What has become of that process? The ineptitude of this government is now sickening. Just get the road fix and move on.”
Luri James wrote, “we pray this results in actual construction this time round.”
Rehanatu Feumbonia Salifu wrote, “another sod-cutting? eeei we need contractors at work not…”
Zakaria Rafique wrote, “hmmmm ceremonies nkoaaaa nothing else. We pray it becomes a reality in our country.”
Iddrisu Sumani wrote, “Hon. I trust this is not another usual thing? Prove us wrong this time. this road is long overdue please.”
Ibrahim Anyarss wrote, “may your road be constructed with bulldozers and not with sod cuttings.”
Meanwhile, others who commented under the post commended the Regional Minister and the government for giving attention to the road.
