The people of Pakro near Nsa-wam in the Akuapem South municipality have appealed to the Member of Parlia-ment for the area, Mr Osei Bonsu Amoah to assist in the regravelling of the 18 kilometre Pakro road.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency at Pakro, Mr Kwame Mawoeku, the chief cocoa farmer in the area, said due to the bad nature of the road, vehicles have refused to ply it.
He said as a result, most farmers now carried their farm produce on their heads several kilometres to join vehicles.
Mr Mawoeku said if the road is regravelled, it would assist the farmers from Otukwadjo, Pakro, Tadankoro, Alafia, Odum and Obosono to easily send their foodstuff to the Nsawam market to sell.
He said the rains would set in soon, which would further destroy the road if nothing was done, stating that an immediate action must be taken to avoid foodstuffs from going bad.
