Residents of Ledzokuku-Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) in Accra have expressed their disgust over the poor conditions of roads in the area.
The angry residents, who poured out their anger on Adom FM and Adom TV on Thursday in the #FixLekmaNow campaign to get roads fixed nationwide, complained that the very bad roads create inconvenience for the residents daily.
One of the residents, who could not hold his anger, said because of the bumpy nature of the roads he lost his sick wife while plying the road.
“This road is really killing us. My wife would have been alive by now if not for this bad road. She wasn’t feeling too well, I had to drive her to the Ledzokuku-Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) Hospital but unfortunately when we got to the hospital, we were told by the doctor that she had died.
“We are staying in Teshie and when we are sick and dying, we can’t drive all the way to Korle-Bu for medical condition, it’s very bad,” the worried man said.
Another resident, who vented his spleen against the government, said they protested three weeks ago against the bad nature of the roads, but nothing was done about it.
“We won’t vote in 2020. We need our roads fixed. They have no idea how we are feeling. In fact, our leaders, who have looked on unconcerned, have no paradise to go to,” one angry resident said.
LEKMA Hospital is the fourth largest hospital in Ghana in terms of referrals. Lots of referrals are sent there but the journey there makes conditions worse because of the bad roads.
