Residents of Teshie in the Greater Accra Region are up in arms against the government and the Ledzokuku Municipal Assembly over the bad roads in the area.

Thousands of residents poured out to the streets on Tuesday morning clad in red to protest the bad roads in the area. They held placards with inscriptions such as “potholes turned manholes”, “All our sales used for car repairs because of the bad roads” and others. Others have messages blaming the government for sleeping on their needs though they pay taxes.

The roads in Teshie have been terrible for some time with mobility in the community suffering the most. From Tsuibleeo to the Adjorman Roundabout, from Fertilizer Road to First Junction and others running through the inner communities in the area have all been bad.

Meanwhile, the government through the municipal assembly has announced the immediate repairs of the inner roads in the community. At the time of reporting on this protest, work had started on some of the roads. The stretch from Adjorman Roundabout to the Nungua Estates had been levelled, filling up the potholes that had earlier decorated the place.
