Member of Parliament for Nsawam /Adoagyire constituency, Frank Annoh Dompreh has made a passionate appeal to President John Dramani Mahama to ensure speedy completion of the Nsawam-Suhum road.

According to him, the construction of the road which links Accra to the Ashante, Brong Ahafo and the three northern regions has stalled for nearly seven years, a development which is having a heavy toll on the business activities of the good people of Nsawam and its surroundings.

Commuters on that stretch of the road have had cause complain about its terrible condition with commercial drivers who ply that route bearing the most brunt as their vehicle parts get damaged frequently.

Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show on Thursday, Hon. Annoh Dompreh stated that he has taken several steps to have the road completed including personally appealing with the sector minister and also raising the issue on the floor of Parliament, but nothing new has been done on the road.

He noted that the contractor working on the road has held up the project simply because funds have not been released for the continuation of the construction work.

Hon. Annoh Dompreh requested President Mahama to make available monies for this all important road to be completed.

It would be recalled that the late Ex-President John Evans Atta Mills in an interview said he felt bad and could not raise up his head anytime he drove on that road due to the difficulty that commuters had to endure while using it.

He promised to secure funds to have it completed but that is yet to be done.
