Some Residents In New Bortianor Climb Ladder To Get In And Out Of Their Home

  • One major infrastructure concern in Ghana is the poor roads and the poor quality of the existing ones all over the country
  • A road in the New Bortianor community in the Greater Accra Region has been washed away, leaving a gully behind
  • The residents are, therefore, unable to access their homes easily and have to device means to get in and out of the house

A road constructed in New Bortianor has been washed away by rain, leaving behind a gully that makes it cumbersome for residents to access their homes.

In one particular home, the occupants have placed two wooden ladders at opposite ends of the gully so they can enter and exit the house,

In a video shared by @gyaigyimii on Twitter, the ladder close to the house is longer because the rift is deeper there, while the one further from the house is shorter.

This means without the ladder, the residents in that house located in New Bortianor cannot go in the house or leave it. The formally existing road has become a gully, preventing people from entering their homes.

It is uncertain how long the residents have been living with this condition. New Bortianor is located in the Ngleshie Amanfrom Constituency of the Greater Accra Region.

Ei but can't the residents do something about it? Something like this sometimes doesn't need the government to intervene it's just a matter of you getting the necessary solutions to it, government won't do anything about this sadly

So the landlord didn’t anticipate this when he knew he was buying a land at a water logged area. Moreover, have we lost our individual responsibilities because of government?
