Accra Village appeals for projects to improve living conditions

Mr Enock Adjetey Adjei, an Opinion leader of Accra Village, a community in the Eastern Region has appealed to the central Government for social amenities to enhance their living conditions.

He said the Accra Village, near Kuano in the Ayensuano District, lacked electricity, borehole water, clinic, KVIP, and accessible road to cart their farm produce.

Mr Adjei who made the appeal in an interview with the Ghana News Agency said the residents were peasant farmers who lived in abject poverty and could not even afford to construct latrines in their homes, thereby living in insanitary environmental conditions, such as open defecation.

He pleaded for the fixing of the damaged bridge over Kua River, constructed in 1980 to enable children and farmers to have access to their schools and farms.

Mr Adjei said several appeals to the District Assembly, the Member of Parliament for the area, and benevolent organisations yielded no results, hence the call on the central government to come to their aid.
