Okyenhene confesses: Our roads are being constructed

Okyenhene Amoatia Ofori Panin, paramount chief of Akyem Abuakwah, has lauded President Mahama and the NDC government for constructing the Okyeman roads.

“ I commend President Mahama and the minister for roads and highways for constructing the Okyeman roads…this is a step in the right direction,” Okyenhene confessed.

He stated that, “…to some of my people in the farming communities, electricity is not of essence to them, but good roads that will enable them transport their foodstuffs from their farms to the market so they could make money from their yields at the end of the day”.

He said, his people who are mostly farmers, cannot use “dumsor” as an excuse whatsoever since they have no use for electricity because they spend most of their time on their farms working, so they could feed themselves and mother Ghana.

He said the road construction currently ongoing means a lot to Okyeman and they are very grateful to President Mahama heeding to their call.

He said, though they mounted enormous pressure on the government to have their roads constructed, but at the end of the day, those pressures bore a lot of fruits as their roads are currently being fixed by the NDC administration.
