Former President Jerry John Rawlings has appealed to government to work on the deplorable roads in the Volta Region, especially roads in the regional capital, Ho.

The Former president disclosed this on Thursday (November 14) whilst traveling to the Volta region to commiserate with the Family of the National Democratic Congress, Henry Ametefe on the death of his wife.

Mr. Rawlings stopped at Sokode within the Ho municipality to express his disappointment.

A few weeks ago, the former president said he had a similar experience at Hohoe.

According to residents and motor riders in the community, the delay in the continuation of the developmental project of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration has left the roads in a bad state.

According to some residents, numerous road projects under the previous NDC administration were put on hold by the current government, pending the results of audits to ascertain whether due processes were followed in the award of those contracts.

The people complained about halting the construction of roads under the cocoa-road programme across the country due to the change in Government.

Some abandoned roads that have become a major issue to the people are Jasican-Kejebi, Nkwanta-Kpassa, Nkwanta-Dambia, Peki through Kpeve-Hohoe roads that form part of the Eastern Corridor Road Project.

The rest include Atsito-Fiaxo road, Todome-Kpalime through Tongor–Dzemeni, Vakpo-Wusuta Kpebe and a dual carriage road from Sokode to Ho among, many others across the Volta and Oti regions, the Atsito-Fiaxo road, Todome-Kpalime through Tongor-Dzemeni, Vakpo-Wusuta Kpebe.

Meanwhile, the government says works on roads in the Volta Region would be completed by the end of 2020.
