File photo: Bad cocoa road

Cocoa farmers at Densereso and Adansi in the Asante Akyeam South Municipality of the Ashanti Region are appealing to government to, as a matter of urgency, fix the deplorable roads linking the various cocoa-growing communities in the municipality.

According to the farmers, the dilapidated nature of
road networks has affected the transportation of cocoa beans from farms and
production communities to the various market centres in the country.

Speaking in an interview on Adom News a committee member for the farmers lamented their cocoa beans is rotting away in the farms due to the nature of the roads.

“The situation has brought untold hardship to farmers and even though we have on several occasions reported to the District Assembly and the office of the Member of Parliament, nothing has been done about the situation.”

“We are therefore appealing to the Assembly, Member
of Parliament for the area and Department of Feeder Roads to urgently help
reconstruct the road which has been abandoned,” he said.

Meanwhile, Densereso Odikro, Tetteh Kwaosuro, has cautioned politicians in the area not to come there for any campaign if their road is not constructed.
