URGENT ACTION REQUIRED: GOVERNMENT MUST TACKLE KASOA-WINNEBA TRAFFIC CRISIS IMMEDIATELY

The Central Region Communication Bureau of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) condemns the glaring incompetence of the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia regime in effectively managing the debilitating traffic congestion plaguing the Kasoa-Winneba route.

This perpetual gridlock represents a dire safety hazard, inflicting intolerable delays and economic suffering upon motorists, commuters, and businesses. The NDC denounces this brazen neglect of the Central Region populace and all affected commuters.

Furthermore, the NDC expresses profound dismay at the woefully inadequate response of the Ghana Police Service in alleviating commuter distress. The absence of proactive traffic management strategies is utterly deplorable.

The NDC demands immediate action from President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia.

The Ministry of Roads and Highways, in collaboration with the Ministry of Interior, must swiftly execute a comprehensive action plan to tackle the congestion. This includes ensuring on-site contractors establish alternative routes to mitigate disruptions, while the Ghana Police Service must deploy MTTD officers effectively for traffic control.

The NDC reaffirms its unwavering commitment to advocating for the Central Region and vows to withstand the continued affliction inflicted by President Akufo-Addo and Alhaji Bawumia upon its populace.
