Roads Minister, Kwasi Amoako Atta

The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Atta has urged Ghanaians to desist from going on demonstrations against bad roads.

According to him, government has plans to fix deplorable roads, and that it will be unreasonable for one to expect all bad roads to be done at the same time.

The Minister, while interacting with the press after inspecting the 31.7km Kwafokrom to Apedwa road in the Eastern Region which forms part of the Accra-Kumasi dualization project, expressed disappointment that some educated people join in demonstrations for their roads to be fixed.

According to him, such demonstrations will not get the roads fixed and so are needless.

“It is unreasonable for anybody to say that all roads everywhere should be fixed simultaneously. So these demonstrations should stop. Sometimes you get people who are supposed to know better, well-educated people who should advice their colleagues joining demonstrations. Demonstrations don’t build roads,” he said.
