In the wake of the gory accident that occurred at Ashiaman, the Member of Parliament, Ernest  Henry  Norgbey and the Municipal Chief Executive Albert Boakye Okyere would team up  to embark on a decongestion exercise.

According to the lawmaker, the incident brings to fore the need for an urgent impartial decongestion exercise along the shoulders of the main market area towards the Ashaiman Valco Flat area to safeguard lives and property.

He repeated that clamoring for space on the shoulders of the roads, though can be attributed to the inadequate space within the Ashaiman main market, the Assembly has constructed about five hundred sheds near the Adjei Kojo underpass and I’ll urge traders to contact the Municipal Assembly for allocations, he said.

“We need to crack the whip to bring sanity into the system, a huge  investment  has been made in the provision of these markets and we cannot afford to look on while it is being underutilized”.

It is unfortunate that the lack of political will on the part of successive governments and the general indiscipline on the part of some traders in the constituency have brought us into this mess, he lamented.

Last week Thursday was indeed a very sad day for the people of Ashaiman after losing a 21 year old SHS graduate with six others in critical condition at the Tema General Hospital.

“The situation will only get worse with the increasing level of migration into the community if drastic and prompt action is not taken, I pray we can count on the support of all my constituents.

My heart aches terribly in this unfortunate accident and I send my deepest condolences to the bereaved families and wish the injured a speedy recovery.”
