Human and vehicular activities on the Kejebril-Mpohor-Adum Banso road has come to a halt after an articulated truck blocked it.

Tricycles and commercial buses have been waited for several hours, all to no avail, as they blame local politicians, the government for neglect, and lack of response to their pleas as the road continues to deteriorate.

It would be recalled that President Akufo-Addo cut sod in 2018 for this deplorable road to be reconstructed and tarred, but work has since stalled after the executing contractor, JPP Construction, made a cameo appearance and vanished.

The DCE and MP for Mpohor have also engaged in propaganda about the road, using NPP activists to prevent the people from expressing their concerns.

Residents told newsmen, it is a disgrace how a major road in the Mpohor district will be left in this bad shape as the people suffer.

"We decided to demonstrate against the government, but some people were bribed to keep quiet, and the majority of our people are suffering, our farmers are disappointed in local politicians ", Kwesi Bimbi, a farmer lamented.

We call on the government to investigate how the road contractor absconded with no government official in the district explaining to the people why they must suffer due to this deplorable road. Ours has now been rendered immotorable due to this blockage, Bimbi added.

Residents directed the lack of action and concern to the doorsteps of the government, and they have warned to teach the DCE and Mp for Mpohor some lessons in politics. They are not helping the government, they are not helping to explain to the people how long they have to wait for the road to be repaired.

It is true the Npp is becoming unpopular in the Mpohor district, and we will soon act, angry residents told newsmen.
