Residents of Ablekuma, Agape and adjoining communities in the Ga Central Municipality have appealed to the government to provide them with essential social amenities.
According to them, the few available social amenities in the area such as potable water, health facilities and schools are difficult to access due to poor roads.
A visit to the Community by our reporter Paul Mamattah revealed that residents depend on underground water from wells; and most especially, rain water.
Speaking in an interview with WestAfrica24.com at Agape, the President for the Inner City Tribal Chiefs, Dr. Chief Mohammed Sungtaaba, expressed concern over the deplorable state of roads in the Community; describing the potholes as manholes.
He said even though the roads were rehabilitated some few months ago, they have developed potholes again making it un-motorable when it rains.
Dr. Chief Sungtaaba noted that the damaged roads are having a negative effect on businesses in the area; hence their call on the government to come to their aid.
He also appealed to the government to as a matter of urgency provide the area with a hospital to cater for the health needs of residents.
Dr. Chief Sungtaaba called on the Ga Central Municipal Assembly to urgently respond to their pleas and put up schools for them.
He claimed the Community leaders have met with the Member of Parliament for Anyaa-Sowutuom, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway and the Ga Central Municipal Assembly several times on their needs but nothing has been done so far.
