OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Police officers within the Adenta-Madina jurisdiction and officers from the municipal assembly have finally cracked the whip on pedestrians refusing to use the Madina-Adenta footbridge.
In an exclusive video shot by YEN, the pedestrians who decided to cross the main road directly beneath the bridge were made to kneel down.
Their stubbornness and refusal to use the footbridges which were purposely created for that warranted that kind of punishment.
About a year ago, residents of Madina-Adenta took to the streets to protest over the unending motor accidents that were recorded on that stretch.
The last straw was the death of a Muslim girl who was a student of the West African Secondary School at Adenta.
The death of the young lady caused a public outcry as her family members and other residents who had had enough of the road accidents took to the streets to demonstrate to register their displeasure.
This caused the government to expedite work on the bridges which had for a long time stalled for unknown reasons.
In the video captured by the YEN team, pedestrians who were punished by the officers on duty were spotted pleading leniency.
The officers, however, let them go after making them kneel for some time.
Their presence at the scene, however, forced people to use the footbridges which they formerly did not make use of.

The beautiful ceremony was held at Jubilee House, the seat of the nation's presidency.
His swearing-in comes five days after he faced the Appointments Committee of Parliament as Minister of Finance designate to be vetted.
President Akufo-Addo in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on Facebook stated that the Ghanaian people were expecting the Finance Minister to put the economy on a sound footing once again.
He also added that doing that will help lead it out of the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
