The Vice President of the Central Regional House of Chiefs, Osagyefo Kwame Akonu X has expressed disappointed about the deplorable state of roads within the region.
He has thus appealed to the government to as a matter of urgency tar deplorable roads in the Region to facilitate easy movement.
“If the government fails to tar the roads, then we the chiefs will do it by ourselves and afterwards, use “aeroplane” when coming to the Region to campaign” Osagyefo Akonu fumed.
The Vice President of the Central Regional House of Chiefs sent this warning when he chaired Apayemkese 2022 festival at Asebu celebrated by the Chiefs and people of Asebu traditional area.
The festival was on the theme “The Return of the Africans in the Dispora to Asebu: Prospects for National Development”.
He applauded the Omanhen of Asebu Traditional Area, Okatakyi (Prof) Amanfi VII for his developmental initiatives in the area including the construction of laboratory at Moree Health center.
The rest are construction of Police Station at Asebu, Pan-African Village, ongoing citrus factory as well as an ultra modern market at Asebu.
On his part, Okatakyi Amanfi expressed sadness about the poor drainage system in the area which had contributed to poor sanitation in various communities.
He added that “the deep erosion in most towns is eating away foundation of most buildings and as such poses great danger to lives and property in most communities within the area”.
Okatakyi Amanfi therefore called for government intervention to deal with the drainage problem in the Asebu Traditional Area.
The Apagyahen of Asebu Traditional Area and Regent of Moree, Nana Obokese Ampah who added his voice appealed to the government to construct sea defense at Apayese Beach area at Moree because the people of the area are being enfulfed by the ocean.
