The youth of Anlo – Afiadenyigba in the Keta municipality of the Volta Region have asked Ghana to as a matter of urgency fix the road from the Anlo Afiadenyigba junction to Havedzi.

At the inauguration of the Anlo Afiadenyigba Youth Council, Chairman of the Youth Council, Bubu Klinogo described the road as a death trap which has already claimed the lives of two youths in the past couple of months.

Mr. Klinogo also outlined the economic benefits of fixing that road, which serves as the shortest route between the regional capital Ho and the Keta, the municipal capital as well as the other towns in the southern part of the region.

According to him, when the road is in good shape, it will open up the many communities along the route and boost businesses.

Mr. Klinogo said the youth will not relent until they see action on the road.

The Youth Council serves as an umbrella body for the youth and youth groups from all the eight divisions of Anlo Afiadenyigba.

Its objective is to mobilise the youth to contribute to the rapid socio economic development of their town.

The Council has the backing of the chiefs and elders, opinion and religious leaders as well as all well meaning citizens of the community.

In a reaction, the Deputy Volta Regional Minister, Pastor Johnson Avuletey who inaugurated the Council, gave the assurance that government will consider rehabilitating the road.

He asked for patience, insisting that the previous government left a lot of roads in terrible shape and it will the current administration some time to be able to fix all of them.

The youth also expressed their desire to work with other stakeholders to see to the revival of their annual Tagbaza (lagoon festival).

They also called on the various royal families in the community to take urgent steps towards installation of Chiefs whose stools have been vacant for years.

The regent of the chief of the town, Torgbui Kadzahlo said a new chief will be installed in three months to the work with the youth and other stakeholders to bring development to the town.
