Stakeholders of Asolukura community in the Tatale – Sanguli district of the northern region have called on the government to tackle the 16 kilometre road project which was abandoned when the previous government left office.
The abandoned project according to the community has become a death trap to travelers and commuters who ply that road.
The Chief of the area, Ubor Ukapiin Tayam, has expressed disappointment over what he termed as a deliberate negligence by successive government. Ubor Kapiin explained that, there is the need for good road network so as to attract investors as the community shares border with Togo.
Some residents of the area expressed how the deteriorated road has affected their livelihood as commuters as well as people who come to the area for business activities.
According to sources, the 16 kilometre road project was awarded to Mr. Abukari Sulemana in July last year by the Tatale District Assembly under the supervision of the District Chief Executive (DCE) Mr. Thomas Mbomba.
Confirming the situation to Savanna Diaries, the Assembly Member for the area, Mr konja Bilitui Amos said several appeals have been made to the District Assembly concerning the deplorable state of the road, yet nothing has been done to that effect.
He urged opinion leaders in the district to come together as a unit to help fight the completion of the abandoned project.
