” we transport our yams to Accra to sell and this is the yam season so if we allow the rains to wash off the road all in the name of government will do, it will affect us. So we appealed to the member of parliament and he gave us 1,500 cedis to get sea sand and cement to construct a long pillar so we don’t experience any wash way” . One of them explains.


Meanwhile the member of parliament for the Salaga south constituency Hon Adams Salifu Braimah has presented cash amount of 1,500 to support the exercise.
