“Demonstrations Don’t Build Roads, You Won’t Get Result” – Minister of Roads Amoako Atta Tells Ghanaians » GhBase•com™

The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Atta, has made it emphatic that demonstrations don’t contract roads, therefore, he gets surprised when persons who should know better get themselves involved in demonstrations for their deplorable roads to be fixed.

According to him, the government is committed to fixing the roads adding that demonstrating would not get their roads in the best shape they want it.

“It is unreasonable for anybody to say that all roads everywhere should be fixed simultaneously. So, these demonstrations should stop. Sometimes you get people who are supposed to know better, well-educated people who should advise their colleagues joining demonstrations. Demonstrations don’t build roads,” he told the media when inspecting the 31.7km Kwafokrom to Apedwa road in the Eastern Region which forms part of the Accra-Kumasi dualization project.

The Road and Highways Minister also asked contractors working on various road projects to speed up work.

“I have charged the contractors to ensure that they complete the stretch of the road covering a distance of 31km by the end of the year. I have asked them to introduce night work to compensate for any delay,” he said.

The uncouth comments from the camp of Amoako Atta partly emanate from how residents of Manso Agoroyesum in the Ashanti Region have embarked on a series of demonstrations over the deplorable nature of roads in the area.

Raod According to the aggrieved residents, the district is enriched with minerals, timber, and cocoa yet they cannot boast of any good road network.
