Amega Saba Djastui, Chief of Djastui
Old Town near Nsawam in the Akwapem South Municipality has appealed to
the Department of Feeder roads to come to their aid in regravelling
a five-kilometer road linking the town with Adoagyin and Coaltar.
Briefing the Ghana News Agency at a meeting held at Djastui on Friday,
Nana Saba said because of the bad nature of the road, drivers plying it
charged exorbitant prices.
He said during daytime, the drivers charged between 50 GHP and 60 GHP
but in the night between, they charged 1 GH¢.
Amega Saba, therefore, appealed to the Acting Inspector General of
Police to take immediate action against the drivers who also engaged in overloading, to avoid accident.
He also appealed to the government to come to their aid in the
regravelling of the road to assist in the transportation of foodstuffs
in the area to the cities.
