- Residents of Teshie in Accra are complaining over bad roads
- Member of parliament for the constituency claims cases of miscarriages and asthma are on the rise because of the development
Troubled residents at Teshie in the capital of Accra have blamed the spate of maternal mortality and other chronic diseases to the outburst of poor roads in the area.
According to these residents, patients suffering from asthma are having their sicknesses worsen by the day due to the dusty nature of the roads. According to them, the 7-kilometer road which connects the township of Teshie to the mainland of the capital is badly motorable.
"If it rains we can't use the road, you have to park your car, I think the Ministers and whoever is using big cars use the road, but those of us using small cars can’t do anything here," a driver is noted as stating.
The development seems not so far from Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ledzokuku constituency, Dr. Okoe Boye who revealed that cases of miscarriages have increased as a result of the development.
Meanwhile, the head of urban roads at the assembly, Domingo Leketey, is feared that the development could prolong as the finance ministry is yet to provide the needed funding for the tarring of the road.
