File photo: Bad road

The chief and residents of Abourkrom in the Jaman South Municipality of the Bono region are appealing to the Municipal Assembly and the Department of Feeder Roads to rehabilitate roads in the community.

They explained the nine kilometer road is in a deplorable condition, hindering them from accessing quality healthcare in the municipality.

The chief of the community, Nana Seidu Gyabaa, told Adom News people died of snake bite in the area because there were no vehicles to convey them to a hospital and appealed for the situation to be attended to.

Due to the bad nature of the road, drivers refuse to ply the route, resulting in their inability to convey their sick people and pregnant women to the Drobo Municipal Hospital.


According to residents who spoke to Adom News‘ reporter Christian Ofori Kumah, the bad nature of the road was hampering socio-economic activities in the area as well as health.
