Residents in the Manhyia North constituency, have praised their Member of Parliament (MP), Mr Collins Owusu Amankwaa, for the massive road construction works currently going on in the area.

According to them, the redevelopment of major roads in almost all the communities in the constituency was unprecedented and deserved an applause.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency during a visit to the constituency, they said their constructive criticism to the MP had yielded positive results, especially in the area of roads.

Mr Ransford Obeng, a resident pointed out that the deplorable road network in the constituency over the years, was the major challenge of the people in the area.

This, according to him, was the bone of contention between them and the MP, who promised them over the years to fix them.

“We have now seen massive road construction works in almost every community here. Through the hard work of our MP, areas such as A,B,C D,E, F lines, Buokrom estates, Airport Roundabout, Buokrom, Moshie Zongo and other parts of the constituency have all gotten their roads and drains put to good shape”, he told the Ghana News Agency.

Ms. Rahmatu Ibrahim, a resident of Moshie zongo, said Manhyia north, which was a centre of Kumasi, had suffered in terms of road network for many years.

“The place now looks beautiful and people now get back home quickly from work”, she pointed out. Ms. Ibrahim however, called for the reshaping of the Buokrom zongo link road to help give the area a face lift.
