Mr Abdul Rahamani Umaru, the Assembly Member of Onyemso Electoral Area, has expressed worry about the lack of telecommunications networks signals in the community which is affecting the social and economic lives of inhabitants.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Onyemso in the Kwahu East District, Mr Umaru said for one to get connected to any of the telecommunications networks, residents in the area had to hang their phones at a particular spot to be connected.

He said the issue was very worrying because workers such as nurses and teachers posted to the area found it difficult in migrating to the place due to the challenge facing them.

Mr Umaru said the community also lacked portable water and toilet facility to serve the community.

He said the road leading to the town was in a deplorable state, thereby, making life unbearable for the people especially the market women.

The Assemblyman said traders also found it difficult to convey their produce from nearby communities to the market especially during market days.

He indicated that the situation worsened during the raining season and therefore, called on the Kwahu East District Assembly to as a matter of urgency, come to their aid.

Mr Umaru also made an appeal to the National Communications Authority (NCA) to come to the aid of the community.

Onyemso is a farming community in the Kwahu East District with a population of about 1000 people.
