An associate professor at the University of Ghana (UG) Legon, Prtofessor Ransford Gyampo, is advocating for t5he dissolution of the entire Nana Addo led administration.
Professor Gyampo in a post said the current administration has failed in allowing people to be killed on the highway before issuing a statement to fix the problem.
According to him, it is unfortunate for government to allow people to spontaneously stage a demonstration in protest of another death recorded on Thursday.
In a Facebook post, the outspoken professor slammed government for failing to heed to calls by residents and said:’’Government heard the complaints about the accidents on the Madina-Adenta Road & did nothing until the people demonstrated and and there were casualties including loss of lives and injuries inflicted by the police on people who were drawing attention to their plight.
Can we call for the dissolution of the government?
Dissolving a Governing Council because of study demonstration only exposes a certain hidden agenda beyond the rather ignorant explanations being bandied around by some inexperienced appointees who have no clue about University administration and the rationale/spirit behind the nature and composition of Governing Councils of public universities.’’
Meanwhile, a statement issued by the joint Inter-ministerial committee on has assured residents work on the footbridges will commence in a week.
‘’Traffic signal lights and street lighting are also to be fixed to improve visibility on the corridor,’’ the statement said.
It added that: ‘’Work on the uncompleted bridges is expected to commence within a week. Work is to be done on an accelerated basis with multiple contractors to ensure quick completion. This is in accordance with already commenced processes prior to the unfortunate incident that occurred on Thursday.’’
The National Road Safety Commission is to also intensify its education and sensitization programs targeting drivers and pedestrians along the corridor.
