The Assemblyman for the Navio-Electoral area, Roland Apugido is worried that a bridge that connects 3 communities in the area remains unfixed more than a year after it collapsed under the weight of an articulated truck carrying rosewood.
When he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Mr. Apudigo explained that the Kassena-Nankana District Assembly has been practically unresponsive about the issue.
“The Assembly has not taken any steps that I am aware of. The bridge remains as it was last year. Anytime I get to the assembly, I try to remind them of the situation,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Overlord of Buru-Navio Traditional Area in the Kassena Nankana West District of the Upper East Region, Pe Adams Kwarase Asongojem Parijei Adurigola II, speaking with A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show today, expressed high level of disappointment in the Upper East Regional Minister for his seeming lack of action.
“In fact, this bridge is a problem to the entire Upper East Region, not just the people of Navio. Since this bridge got broken, I have complained and organised press conferences and up till now, there’s been nothing done. Recently, I brought people to come and put stones there. Last 2 months, the regional minister called me and said the contractor is coming. We have waited till today and there’s still nothing. Even when I call them, they do not pick up. Everyday, people would come to my palace and complain to me,” he said.
