Residents of Goviefe Todzi in the Volta Region say they are finding it extremely difficult to send their farm produce to the markets due to the deplorable condition of the 3 kilometre Kpeve-Goviefe Todzi road.

Although several appeals have been made to government to fix the road, it remains the same, affecting the economic lives of the people.

Goviefe Todzi is one of the mountainous communities in the Afadzato South District.

The inhabitants are predominantly farmers whose produce feed the Kpeve, Have and Hohoe markets.

The only access to the community is through its 3 kilometre road from Kpeve. This road is rocky, narrow and steep, and drivers are unwilling to use it.

In recent years, the road has deteriorated so badly forcing drivers and motor riders to charge high fares, and increasingly, residents find it extremely difficult to send their farm produce to the markets.

Assembly Member for the area, Emmanuel Attah told JOYNEWS several unsuccessful attempts have been made over the decades to fix the road. He renewed his appeal to government to urgently come to the aid of the people.

“We want government to as a matter of urgency take a critical look at the situation and fix the road for us “he pleaded

The DCE for Afadzato South ,Lawyer Wisdom Semanu Seneadza said the situation is worrying and the his outfit is working towards at making sure that something urgent is about the deplorable nature of the road to boost economic activities in the town
