Angry residents of Dungu Kukuo a suburb of Tamale in the Northern Region are threatening to boycott the upcoming general elections over an ‘abandoned’ road construction project in their community.
According to the angry residents, the contractor working on the road has abandoned the road for some time now, leaving the road more deplorable than before.
They say, the road was somehow motorable until the contractor dug out sand on the road as part of the construction works; making the road inaccessible.
The current nature of the road has also put the lives of the community members in danger as their houses are flooded any time it rains.
They say, it has become difficult to transport sick persons including pregnant women to the nearby hospital.
The residents are therefore calling on authorities to return the contractor back to site or they will boycott the upcoming general elections.
A visit by Adom News’ Illiasu Abdul Rauf Dabre to the site revealed that weeds had taken over the road while some parts of the gutter had started collapsing.
Mba Seidu Adam, who speaks on behalf of the Chief of the area, also added that the current nature of the road keeps residents indoor whenever it rains.
He, therefore, appealed to government to pay the contractor so he can complete the project.
On his part, the Assemblymember of Sagnarigu-Dungu Electoral Area, Alhassan Imoro told Adom News, he was aware of the poor nature of the road and has engaged the contractor on several occasions.
But according to Mr. Alhassan, the contractor told him he was waiting for his money from the government to complete the road.
