The overflowing banks of River Abrasu and Anaso at Akyem Asamana in the Atiwa District are posing serious threat to the transportation of food stuff to the marketing centres.

A survey by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) revealed that heavy rains and lack of solid bridges in the Eastern Region-based farming community is compounding the problems of the farmers who are hit by post harvest losses.

Mr Yaw Adu Sarkodie, an opinion leader, told the GNA at Akim Asamama that the situation is making life extremely difficult for the people.

He, therefore, appealed to the authorities to address the situation as a matter of urgency to save the farmers from untold hardship.
