The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Mpraeso constituency in the Eastern Region, Mr. Davis Opoku Ansah, has urged the government to fix the deplorable Adawso-Amanfrom road.
Mr. Opoku Ansah argued that given the output of the onion farmers in the surrounding communities, repairing the road, which links their farms to major markets, will help to significantly reduce the need to import onions from other countries.
He also believes it will boost employment within the Mpraeso constituency.
“I want to plead with the father of the nation, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to help us with the construction of the Adawso-Amanfrom road to help our farmers and also aid in curbing the importation of onion into our country.”
“Our farmers here produce the best and highest-quality onions but due to the nature of the road, their activities and farm produce do not get to the markets on time for sale. I know the President is a listening president and I plead with him and our honourable Roads Minister to construct this road for my people and Ghanaians at large.”
The Mpraeso lawmaker made the plea as part of his community engagements today, Friday, April 23, 2021.
The community engagement is to afford him the opportunity to account for his stewardship as the MP in his first 100 days in office and also to receive feedback from his constituents.
He also used the opportunity to inspect some projects he has initiated in the constituency and explain government policies to his constituents.
