Residents of Kade in the Kwaebibirem Municipality of the Eastern Region have banned the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) from campaigning in the area.
To this end, they have warned politicians to stay off the place until their only access road in the area is worked on before the 2020 polls or it is game over.
The deplorable condition of the only access route in the area and government’s apathy towards repairing it, they revealed, has led to accidents and needless deaths.
Angry youth of the town in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com warned politicians to stay away from the community during campaigns next year unless roads are fixed.
“When it rains, the road becomes muddy, making accessibility a challenge but also providing a greater leeway for armed bandits. They should fix it or no political party should come here, no road, no vote.”
“We want to tell our political leaders that if our problems are not solved, we are not going to admit a ballot box into our community because we don’t know the reason for voting if voting cannot solve our problems”.
Many residents who have been victims of robbery attacks resolved that they will not be part of the 2020 polls if the road is not fixed as demanded threatening to chase out politicians who will dare try to campaign in the area.
