The Twifo Buabin Development Association (TBDA) has appealed to the Minister of Roads and Highways, Akwasi Amoako Atta, to as a matter of urgency, construct the road from Dunkwa – On – Offin to Buabin in the Central Region.
The Association said the road had been in a very bad state for over a decade and was hampering developmental activities in the area.
This was contained in a statement signed and issued by the Secretary of the Twifo Buabin Development Association, Justice Nana Banful and copied to the Ghanaian Times in Accra yesterday.
“We say this because in 2006, the government of Ghana and the Buabin community came into an agreement that the road within the Buabin enclave especially the Dunkwa – Buabin stretch would be tarred if the Adontenhene of Twifo Mampong Paramouncy, Okofo Kofi Buabin released a large tract of land for the cultivation of oil palm to feed the Twifo Oil Palm Plantations (TOPP) factory at Ntafrewaso. The Buabin stool honored its side of the agreement,” he said.
Mr Banful added that the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo led administration had also pledged to construct the road with “several letters and personal contacts with the road minister have all proved futile.”
For that reason, he said there was the pressing need for the constituency’s feats chalked over the years particularly in winning the national farming awards to be recognised
“Apart from the Dunkwa municipality which has its inner township roads tarred. All the adjourning communities – namely Buabin, kontokrom, Sobroso and Adjom. The rest are Imbraim, Kwakudum, Agyempoma, Twifo Kyebi among others have not seen bitumen resurfacing,” he said.
The Secretary of the Buabin Development Association said that because the area lacked ministerial appointments, lobbying for development was difficult.
