Chief Expresses Worry Over Delay On Boadua-Dwenase-Takyiman Road Project
Barima Amoah Kuko Ntirakwa II, Chief of Akyem Dwenase in the Kwaebibirem District has expressed worry over the delay in executing work on the Boadua-Dwenase-Takyiman feeder road expected to commence several months ago.
He, therefore, called on Government to compel the contractor to expedite action on it or terminate his contract if he was unable to implement the project for a more serious person to be chosen.
'Ever since the contract was awarded several months ago, the contractor has failed to inspect the site, let alone move machines and other equipment to commence work,' the Chief said in an interaction with newsmen in the area. The 10-kilometer road project is being financed by the European Union (EU).
Barima Ntirakwa II said the inaction of the contractor was compelling people to point accusing fingers to the government to the fact that it was not being sensitive and a listening one as far as roads in the district were concerned.
He wondered what was preventing the contractor from starting work on the project and said already opponents of the government had started capitalizing on the road network issue to win 'cheap political points'.
The chief said almost all roads in the district particularly the Boadua-Dwenase-Takyiman, Kade-New Abirem and Abodom-Pramkese are all in deplorable conditions.
