These developments have been sighted on major parts of the roads in Koforidua, which is in the New Juaben municipality of the Eastern region.

Specific areas are the Methodist school through the central business district to Nsukwao, Effiduase and Asokore.

Taking into consideration the time the roads were asphalted, the predominant notion was that it was to assist on the canvassing of votes for the then ruling party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

According to the assemblyman for Suhyen, Kwaku Ankomah Asare, who is also the chairman of the sub – works committee for the assembly, there were questions surrounding the award of the contract to construct the road.

He stated that equipment appeared out of the blue, and the roads were consequently asphalted.

To him, these construction contracts were not passed through the municipal assembly, which is the normal practice.

Therefore, there was no way the situation could have been supervised or monitored, he said.
