Residents of Domeabra, a suburb of the Birim North District Assembly have bemoaned bad roads in the municipality.

Some of the town folks who spoke to the news team asserted that they were fed up with the "we have awarded the road to a contractor" tunes sung by the District Chief Executive Officer (DCE) of the area, Remond Nana Damptey.

They explained that the road has been in a deplorable state for the past 4 years and has been left to erode.

Due to this, commercial vehicles do not operate in the Domeabra community. Residents and other inhabitants in neighbouring towns resultantly resort to use of motorbikes as their means of transportation.

Good road network and a clinic our major needs as a community.

Nyafomanghene, Nana Ansa Sasraku Nipa IV indicated that the deteriorating roads from Domeabra through to Nyafomang has been their major worry.

Aside the deplorable road, another burden on him is the unavailability of a health facility in the community.

According to the chief, he has forwarded their grievances to the DCE and is yet to receive feedback from authorities on that.

The road has been awarded to a contractor - DCE

In an interview with the DCE, Remond Nana Damptey, told the news team that the Domeabra road has been awarded to a contractor and hopefully, in the next 24 months, the people of Domeabra will have access to a bitumen road.

"The construction of the Domeabra road is dear to me more than the commuters. Water and a good road are the two major things this community needs. Government has awarded the road to a contractor who is readying himself to commerce work. The people of Domeabra will have a bitumen road in the next 24 months," the DCE averred.

A resident who appeared skeptical about the DCE's claim said "I can only believe the DCE is helping to fix our road when the contractor starts working on it. The reason being that, we are fed up with their lies".

Residents however are yet to experience the commencement of the road project in Domeabra and its environs.
