The demonstrators with placards.

Residents of Gbolung in the Kumbungu District of the Northern Region, yesterday  took to the streets of the community to demonstrate.

The demonstrators, numbering over 100, marched through the streets for three hours to register their displeasure at the deplorable conditions of the roads in the area.

They marched all the way from Gbolung to the Kumbungu Assembly and presented a petition to the District Coordinating Director, Abdulai Issifu.

They accused successive governments of neglecting Gbolung and other communities in the area,

claiming that the Gbolung community had been cut off completely from the rest of the country.

The demonstrators lamented that all roads leading to the community had never been motorable, and that people only travelled to the community by either motorbike or bicycle.

They vowed never to welcome any political party to the community, or vote during the elections, threatening,“We would drive away any political party or any politician that attempt to come our community to do any campaign this year”.
