A resident at Odorkor Official Town has commended the Member of Parliament for the Ablekuma North Constituency, Mr. Joe Appiah for his intervention leading to improvement in some access roads in the constituency.

The resident, a middle age lotto staker who wants to remain anonymous was particularly impressed about the road linking Gloryland Hotel through Mount Calvary Cross , part of Odorkor Official Town, Darkuman and its environ.

“As a matter of fact, these roads were all in a deplorable state full of dust and portholes before he assumed office, but through his initiatives you can see how motorable they have become” he added.

He was however not happy about the drainage system, suggesting that open drains were not helping the fight against unclean environment.

“Because of the open gutters the drains are already chocked with filth and this will certainly bring problems to residents now that the rains are with us”, he added.

When contacted the MP, he disclosed that he had to lobbied the then Minister of Roads and Highways, Mr. Joe Gidisu to construct those access roads which he obliged and did that with Government of Ghana (GoG) funding.

He said it is his desire to see improvements on all road networks in the area but that can only be achieved over a period depending on financial strength of the government.
