Cordial greetings to you, Mr President from Manso Abodom, a farming community in Amansie west District in Ashanti Region of Ghana.
“We humbly write to your noble office to draw your attention to the poor condition of roads in Manso Nkwanta District and its environs such as Manso Abodom.
As concerned citizens, We feel it is our responsibility to notify you of this pressing issue before it creates unimaginable problem for communities in Manso Abodom electoral area and Amansie West District as whole.
Before we proceed to the main issue in the above caption, the people of Manso Abodom in Amansie West show our appreciations to a classroom blocks built by your administration for Abodom Brofuyedu in the Amansie district and other social amenities.
Your Excellency, good roads which play a major role in facilitating the country’s economic activities through which goods are transported between cities as well as people, across the country to offer services, are rare in the Amansie West District.
The Amansie West is a deprived of good roads and without any trace of a railway. The major roads linking the various major towns in the area and the District Capital- Manso Nkwanta are in a dilapidated State and the feeder roads, as well as those within the towns, are virtually nothing to write home about. Some of the roads have always been acclaimed to be under construction especially from Manso Akropong to Adwumam, yet neither taste a drop of bitumen nor ever get completed have been the bait used by politicians to gain votes from residents only to be leftover afterwards, pertaining to claims associated with “non-payment of contractors” by your governments. This is so contemptible and uncomfortable experience plying these roads and slowing down economic activities.
Amansie West District is one of the richest areas in terms of natural resources, including mineral, cocoa and forest resources. The area is rich in resources but worst in development. The resources in the municipality contribute towards fiscal revenue, income job creation and poverty reduction.
Over the past years, the extraction of natural resources such as gold, and cocoa among others has helped transform Ghana’s economic growth with revenue contribution.
Mr President, as you rightly said you don’t want to be the president of the National Capital, Accra, but also of other regions, we would like to appeal to you to consider working on the due construction of these roads in our part of the country as it has distances longer than usual. Our school children normally have to wash our school uniforms at least three times a week our community always hit by flood anytime there is rain because of the poor work of the contractor has been awarded the contract from Akropong to Adwumam. Our nostrils are always coloured due to heavy dust on our roads.
Mr President, Our humble call to you, is not only as a competent president to give us a share of the national cake in our outstretched palms, or to see to the construction and completion of these roads for us on time but also a selfless fanatical president who will be the final consoler of these sorrowful roads to wipe the tears of these roads with concrete or an asphalt handkerchiefs.
Your Excellency, We believe you are a result-oriented man and we are looking forward to seeing Amansie West benefitting from the One District, One Factory (1D1F) initiative.
Thank you so much, your Excellency. We are most appreciative of your hard work. Waiting patiently for your immediate reaction.
Long Live NPP, Long Live President Nana Addo, Long live Ghana.
