He said the road from Bendi to Bunkpurugu was in a very bad shape and needed to be constructed.

He,  therefore, called on the Ministry of Roads and Highways to construct the roads to avoid further difficulties for his people.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic in Accra, Mr Boar noted that the situation was getting worse, especially as the rainy season approached.

He explained that last year some contractors were tasked to clear the rocks and level the road with gravels but they only cleared the rocks and levelled up to a portion.

“The situation is bad, to the extent that all economic activities have stopped, since traders cannot travel to other towns to trade,” he said.

Mr Boar said the community did not have a hospital and the bad roads made it very difficult to transport emergency cases to the nearest hospital.

He said the situation had also forced students to stop schooling because they could not use the bad road to school.
