Government has directed the Feeder Roads Department to construct the road to Apau Wawase, a farming community in the Ayensuano District of the Eastern region because the road is not motorable.
The directive comes after a media report which said that only commercial Motorbikes popularly known as Okada are being used as ambulance and hearse in that community.
The road connecting the community to Asuboi and Suhum is deteriorating hence drivers have stopped plying the road.
Okada is the only means of transport used to carry foodstuffs to market and transport passengers.
Again, the commercial motorbikes are being used as ambulance to transport patients including pregnant women in labour from the health center in the community to referral hospitals.
The Okada is also used to convey dead bodies to and from the morgue for burial in the community.
However, the Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako Atta at a news conference in Accra said an action has been taken for the construction of the road in that community.
