Women in Amoma, a farming community in the Kintampo South district of the Brong Ahafo, have appealed to the government to fix their roads.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, they claim the bad roads in the district deter men from seeking their hands in marriage.
“We have attained the ages of marriage, but suitors are not coming after our hands in marriage because of the deplorable state of the roads,” the women revealed.
According to them, the bad nature of the road is making it impossible for men to come to the community and propose marriage to them, for fear of being attacked by criminals who are taking advantage of the deplorable state of the road.
They indicate that they voted for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the last election, but have been neglected because there are not frantic efforts by the assembly to have the road fixed.
“Look at a very pretty lady like me if I marry will it be bad? Because of the road vehicles cannot come here.
When our husbands to come here, they go back and never return. Our husbands too are being robbed, and we are stuck here, unable to get married.
We are pleading with the government to fix the road, else neither NDC nor NPP should come here for campaigns”, they declared.
Continuing she said “we are very pretty ladies in this village, but our road is depriving us of marriages.
The earlier the government comes to our aid, the better for us because we are suffering. We are at the mercy of armed robbers.”
The women have vowed to lead a demonstration against the government if it fails to address their concerns before the next polls.
