Still in darkness - Assemblyman cries to ECG to extend electricity to Sekekorfe

Still in darkness - Assemblyman cries to ECG to extend electricity to Sekekorfe
LISTEN

The Assembly member for Anyirawase Electoral Area in the Ho West District of the Volta Region, Hon.Christian Agbemenyale has called on government to connect Sekekorpe to the national grid.

He said the community has been in total darkness for decades posing a security threat to residents at night.

He noted that the lack of electricity power has affected the economic and social wellbeing of the people in the area.

The Local Government presentative further expressed wary over successive governments' inability to revamp the Anyirawase-Bame road which poses as a death trap to commuters.

The situation has caused frequent breakdowns of vehicles and miscarriages of pregnant women among other challenges confronting other commuters.

He added that the bumpy road had cost them much over the years, thus business transactions are negatively impacted as farmers and traders are cut off from markets to make earns-meet.

He continued that the road gets worse whenever it rains making it unmotorable for road users, compelling drivers to charge abnormal fares.

Hon.Christian Agbemenyale therefore appealed to the government and corporate organisations to come to their rescue.
