Drivers plying on the Kasoa Cape Coast highway have expressed their frustration at the poor nature of the road.
The drivers who spoke to Rainbow Radio’s Nana Yaw Asare, bemoaned the damage the poor nature of the road is having on their vehicles.
According to the angry drivers, the road has developed potholes making it difficult for the movement of vehicles and thereby creating unnecessary traffic.
The drivers have since bought chippings and sawdust to fill the potholes temporarily but have stressed the need for government to repair the road to facilitate their movement.
‘’The potholes are huge and destroying our vehicles and that is why we have purchased the chippings and other materials to fill the holes temporarily. It is creating unnecessary traffic. We are appealing to authorities to repair the road to facilitate our movement,’’ a driver by name Paa Kwesi said.
Another driver said: ‘’ this is dangerous. A driver nearly had an accident few days ago. The chippings and sawdust are very expensive but we have managed to raise money to purchase some to fill the potholes temporarily. We have the highways ministry. They have to come and repair the road. What we have done is a temporal solution but we need a permanent solution’’ another driver said.
Maverick politician and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has slammed investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, over his approach in exposing people.
The legislator expressed his dislike at the approach used by the award winning journalist and he is currently advocating for the yet to be premiered ‘’Number 12’’ expose, to be shelved and the public prevented from viewing the video.
According to him, Anas must be stopped before he investigates people in their bedrooms.
"Do you think Anas has the right to do what he is doing? Do you think so? We should be careful the way things are going. We kept quiet over the judges' issue. Now he is at GFA. Tomorrow it could be you or me. He could be in your bedroom whilst you are asleep with your wife," he noted.
He was reacting to the ongoing investigations into alleged fraud leveled against GFA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi over the matter.
Mr. Agyapong told Net 2 Dialogue program Anas should be stopped from going ahead with the intended premiering of the documentary.
"I totally disagree with his approach. Somebody should take him to court right now to stop him from what he is doing, he fired"
He continued, "You want to premier this? We have to stop him or else, he will end up one-day recording you whilst you are asleep with your wife and premiere it in public," he told host Abedi Anim.
"First of all, Nyantakyi talks too much. You promise to give President [Akufo-Addo] $ 5million; $ 3 million to the Vice president, $ 2 million for yourself, $ 1 million for minister, all totaling $ 11 million.
"Let me tell you, you could tell that he has not seen money like this before at the GFA."
If he has seen the money before or worked hard for money, he would have known that no company will give him $ 11 million just to go and see the President and the Vice President and the minister".
Deputy constituency secretary for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Awutu Senya West constituency in the Central region, Joseph Tetteh, has described the current MP, George Andah as a disappointment.
The aspiring secretary in the upcoming constituency election said the MP has failed the constituents after he was voted into power.
Outlining some of the projects which he noted have been abandoned by the MP include the Bawjiase Market, Bontrase Market, Bawjiase roads among others.
To him, the ruling party has failed constituents and in order to restore of hope, the NDC will win the 2020 polls.
The victory chalked by the NPP in 2016 he opined was a slip of chance and the NDC has identified the reasons that caused their humiliating defeat and will work on them to win power in 2020.
The NPP he said peddled falsehood in order to win political power but constituents have seen the deceptive nature of the NPP.
‘’We have the legacy; we have the message for 2020. The NPP MP lied to us. He is disgracing us big time. Look at the Ghana PostGPS. George Andah is a big disgrace to Awutu Senya West,’’ he added.
It is North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's "fixed will" that a summit with US President Donald Trump in Singapore should go ahead, state media say.
This followed a surprise meeting on Saturday between Mr Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
Mr Trump had cancelled the 12 June summit citing North Korea's "hostility" - but on Saturday he said things were "moving along very nicely".
Meanwhile US officials are reported to have travelled to the North on Sunday.
The American team, led by Sung Kim, a former ambassador to South Korea, was due to hold talks with North Korean Vice-Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui on preparations for the summit, US and South Korean media say.
The meeting would be the culmination of diplomatic efforts that began this year to try to defuse what had threatened to become a military confrontation between the nuclear-armed communist North and the South and its US ally.
