Residents of Anloga East Electoral Area in the Oforikrom Municipal Assembly of the Ashanti
have heaved a sigh of relief following the commissioning of a new metal footbridge to ease their movement to and from the town.
Beaming with smiles, some of the residents who spoke to Silver Fm’s Akwadaa Nyame expressed their profound gratitude to the Angloga East Committee including the Assembly Member for fulfilling their promise.
According to them, the construction of the bridge had made it easier for them to walk to the adjourning communities with ease.
They recounted that prior to the construction of the bridge some of the residents especially school children had to depend on the deplorable wooden footbridge to enable them to cross a huge River that passed through the community.
”We express our profound gratitude to MP, the MCE and government for blessing us with such a huge project which has lingered for over 50years”
”The community has never seen such a project like this which will link communities in this constituency”
”An old bridge which was a death trap for schoool children and always get flooded whenever it rains heavily can now serve as a commutable footbridge in our community”
The Assembly Member for Anloga East Electoral Area, Mr Solomon Kumi thanks the government and the municipal Assembly for their commitment towards the construction of the bridge.
Mr Kumi then urged the residents to rally behind the government to enable him fast track development in the community.
