Residents of the adjoining towns located along the Agortoe-Shime, Kpordui- Suife stretch of the road are demanding the completion of their road which has been abandoned and left to deteriorate.
According to a detailed information available to rymcitigh.com, the road which has been left unattended to for sometime now is nothing to be proud of. The people narrated how deplorable and unmotorable it becomes during the rainy season and how it is affecting them economically and financially.
“What we’re going through is inhumane. The road is in a deplorable state and no one seems to be saying anything about it. Sometimes, we wonder if we’re really part of this country”, an angry resident expresses.
As if the poor state of the road is not enough, the authorities are only thinking about mounting a barrier in order to restrict movement. This move has angered the residents since according to them, what should be on the cards should be the completion of the road to boost their economic activities.
Predominantly, the residents in these affected communities are mostly fisherfolk and mat weavers. Most of them weave mat for sustenance.
Another point worth noting is that the best and quality locally produced gin known as “Akpeteshie” comes from most of these communities. It is their hope that they will also receive their fair share of a factory to help in the mass production and packaging of the “Akpeteshie”. This they believe, will generate much revenue for the country.
Until then, the people of Agortoe, Adzato, Tregui, Azanu,Nyikutor, Benadzi, Trekume, Blamazado, Sakome and Agorbledokui will continue to go through the stress daily.
