Heavy vehicular traffic paralysed Kasoa Highway on a Friday morning as irate residents protested the dismal road conditions.
Members of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) from the Kasoa branch, dressed in red attire, armbands, and headgear, passionately chanted, “Fix our roads!”
The protesters aimed to bring attention to the hazardous state of their roads, which frequently leads to accidents due to rainwater sweeping vehicles away.
In an interview with Citi News, a sub-chief from Negleshie Amanfrom warned of further protests if the government failed to take immediate action.
“If the government doesn’t act promptly, we will organize another protest,” he emphasized.
Ellain Attoh, the protest’s convenor, presented a petition to the Municipal Chief Executive of the Kasoa South Municipal Assembly.
The petition was received by ING Daniel Sowah, the Municipal Roads Engineer for the GA South Municipality.
