A Ghanaian actress, Bridget Serwaa Kwakye known in the movie circle as Maame Nurse has taken on the herculean task of personally funding the construction of a 24km road at Nkwanta-Kese.
The actress who is based in Kumasi is said to have kicked off the construction works on the Nkwanta Kese inner roads in the Afigya Kwabre District of the Ashanti Region. She started the project with two graders to create a flat surface for the road to be motorable.
Work on the 24km road is moving on rapidly and should be completed soon as the contractor and the surveyor are seriously overseeing the construction. The road, if successfully constructed, will be the first inner lane that has been asphalted at the area.
The financier of the project, Bridget Serwaa Kwakye, who is yet to be a resident of the town said her gesture was informed by the poor condition of the road, which she described as atrocious. She said it was her contribution to help ensure good road networking in the area.
The actress also appealed to other abled persons and bodies saying: “I’m calling on high profile personalities in the country to emulate the spirit of patriotism.”
