4 communities mobilize to fix linking road
Four communities in the Tanina Electoral Area, Wa West District, have taken the initiative to fix a broken bridge that links the communities from Nakor to Piisi and Wa where they access market, health and other social services.
According to the residents of the four communities, including Nakor, Polee, Polee-Lanyiri and Polee-Bawa, it had become imperative for them to fix the bridge since they were unable to cross the stream anytime it rained.
They said the move had even become more necessary to enable their children attend school as they feared the lives of the schoolchildren were at risk travelling across the river.
Mr Darzaa Nachinaa, the Daggaba Chief of the Nakor community, told Info Radio in an interview that the broken bridge had made the road inaccessible and thus affected their economic and social lives.
He said the communities contributed and had about GHC 2,000.00 which they were using to remove the broken culvert from the water way for free flow of the water.
A Unit Committee Member for the Area, Nachinaa Stephen, said they decided to start working on the bridge because they had hopes that the government will come to their aid in the dry season, but it has started raining and they have not seen anything.
The Assembly Member for the Area, Seidu Kasim, said he had reported the issue to the District Chief Executive, the Member of Parliament for the area and the Department of Feeder Roads but that it had not yielded any positive results.
