Former President John Dramani Mahama has promised the chiefs and people of Mpohor district to construct the Kejebril-Mpohor-Adum Banso road if he wins the December 7 polls.
Mr. Mahama made the promised when he was responding to the appeal by the chief of Adum Banso at a durbar as part of his five-day campaign tour to the western region.
The President Nana Akufo-Addo on June 18, 2020, cut the sod for the construction of Kejebir-Mpohor-Adum Banso road.
The road was awarded to JPP Construction Limited in a period of 18 months to complete phase one.
Works was begun for some weeks after which the contractor disappeared and works came to a halt without a trace to the contractor.
The Kejebril-Mpohor-Adum Banso road is the only major road linking the district.
It also links the district to the Ahanta West, Tarkwa-Nsuaem and Wassa East municipalities.
Commercial drivers and other road users due to the nature of the deplorable nature of the road risk thrives of the passengers and traders.
The dusty nature of the road had become a constant reminder to the President Akufo-Addo’s sod cutting in 2018.
Farm produce are left rotting in every harvest period because the road is not motorable and good stuff cannot reach market centres.
Tankers of Benso Oil Palm Plantation (BOPP), sometimes fall off or get stuck along the muddy road during the raining season.
