Apuwongo, a community in the Bongo District of the Upper East Region, is in a state of crisis after a major bridge on the main road linking the community to the district capital was washed away by the recent torrential rains witnessed in the region.

The devastating incident has left the community entirely cut off, with no access to essential services or vehicular movement. The situation, according to community members, is dire, with teachers, nurses, market women, and students struggling to access nearby communities.

“It is that road that connects Apuwongo to the Dua community, the same road that connects Apuwongo to the district capital and the regional capital as well. Now the road is not accessible. Nurses, Teachers, Students, market women, farmers are commuting through that road, and they find it difficult to go in and out. And that is the only road available; the community is surrounded by rivers, and it is the only bridge that has been constructed. Now that it has collapsed, it makes life unbearable in the community.”

Speaking to A1 Radio on ‘News Link,’ Roger Apolunge Abugre, the Assembly Member for the Apuwongo/Yekine Electoral Area, said the current state of the bridge is now beyond the capacity of the community members to manage in a way that they can be passing through, hence they need support.

Mr. Apolunge called on the Bongo District Chief Executive, Madam Rita Atanga, and the Department of Feeder Roads to treat their concern as a matter of urgency, as he has put their concerns in writing to their respective offices.
