Fix Volta Road campaign

Major road projects such as the famous Eastern Corridor Road, the dualization of the Ho Major Roads and the Ho-Aflao roads are in terrible condition and are barely motorable.

A social media campaign with the hashtag #FixVoltaRoads got social media flooded with pictures and videos of some of the worst parts of the bad roads in the Region.

This was to mount pressure on the government to pay attention to the bad roads in there.

The group earlier gave the government several ultimata to bring the contractors back onto the roads but to no avail.

Meanwhile, ahead of the Presidents visit, work has resumed on some main roads in the Volta Region.

Agitations have been rife over the past few months with social media campaign #FixVoltaRoads, to mount pressure on the government to pay attention to the numerous bad roads in the region.

Among the very bad roads are the Eastern Corridor Road, Ho-Aflao Road, as well as the Sogakope Bridge, among others.

Some residents in the Ho Municipality of the Volta Region tell Citi News that they expect the President to among other things, address the issue of bad roads during his two-day tour.

“Potholes that are on the major roads that we have been crying over are now being filled. I don’t know the intention behind that. But what I can say is that it is a way of deceiving the President in the first place so he has a feeling that he is working. But, I am expecting that his coming to the region should serve as a call point for him to see how deplorable our road networks are in the region.”

President Akufo-Addo will on Monday, November 4, resume his national tours this time visiting the Volta Region.

The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, who disclosed this at a press briefing in Accra on Wednesday said, President Akufo-Addo will kick off the tour in Ho Central on Monday, November 4, with a meeting with the Regional Security Council. 

He will then depart to Adaklu and Akatsi to inspect infrastructure projects and also attend the 30th Anniversary of the Akatsi District Assembly. 

President Akufo-Addo will then grace a durbar of the Chiefs and people of Aflao.

The President will on Tuesday, November 5, interact with some students and tutors of selected senior high schools in Ho, and Vakpo. He will also attend durbars in Dzolokpuita, Kpeve and commission a dormitory block at the Vakpo Senior High School. 

Mr. Nkrumah said the President is also expected to visit the Volta Star Textiles and lay the foundation stone for the railway project in the area before departing to Accra.

President Akufo-Addo will return to Accra on Tuesday, November 5, after the tour.

“These regional tours by President Akufo-Addo are aimed at giving him an opportunity to hear first-hand from the people and observe for himself the progress of work,” he told reporters.

The President will return to Accra on Tuesday, November 5, after the tour.
