Demo rocks gov’t over ‘collapsed’ bridge

By on

A group calling itself Akim Oda Concerned Citizens Association (AKOCCA) on Friday demonstrated through the principal streets of Akim Oda in the Birim Central municipality of the Eastern Region over the deteriorating condition of a bridge in the area.

The protest was to register their displeasure over the government’s continuous neglect of the deplorable Jubilee Bridge.

According to the demonstrators, the bridge, which was constructed 30 years ago, had not seen any facelift or rehabilitation.

They argued that even after it developed deep cracks and holes some eight months ago making it impassable, no attention was given to it.

Drivers and transport union operators also joined to stage the demonstration.

Bismarck Ofori Attah, one of the organisers who spoke to Citi News, indicated that the bridge had become a death trap.

“The bridge is deteriorating; it is now a death trap.  We served notice to the Municipal Assembly and other top officials on several occasions to help us reconstruct the bridge but all to no avail. So we deem it necessary to organize this peaceful demonstration to raise awareness for the President to come to our aid in reconstructing this Jubilee Bridge.”
