I'm Not Sleeping...Dome/Kwabenya Road Will Be Completed By End of 2015 - Adwoa Sarfo

Member of Parliament for Dome/Kwabenya, Adwoa Sarfo has assured her constituents that the major stretch of roads within the constituency will be completed by the end of the year 2015.

Adwoa Sarfo, speaking in an interview with Peacefmonline.com, noted that she has made several consultations with the Roads and Highways Minister Inusah Fuseini to ensure that the Dome/Kwabenya roads are tarred and made motorable for vehicles and pedestrians.

According to her, she has not abandoned the constituents and as a listening MP, she remains committed to constructing proper roads for the residents.

She further noted that she has not taken a break from her duties to the constituents and with regard to the poor state of the roads; she's continually making pressing demands to the Sector Minister.

The major road that is a headache to myself and the constituents of Dome/Kwabenya is the Dome Market road. In the Minister’s answer, he admitted that that road has been terrible for a while...Definitely, by end of this year; the whole road from Dome Market up to Kwabenya roundabout should be re-constructed…I will not rest. I will keep on."

She added that the Dome/Kwabenya road serves as a major link to neighbouring areas such as Atomic - Kwabenya, Ashongman, St. Johns - Achimota road, Aburi and Kumasi roads, will soon see some major renovation works.

When asked why it has taken so long for her to raise the matter up before the appropriate authorities, Hon. Sarfo had this to say;

"I will plead with constituents to also have patience with the Member of Parliament. I’m not sleeping. I’m not sitting there unconcerned. I live in the constituency. My family lives in the constituency. My father lives there. So, it is not as if we’re not worried about it.”

She therefore appealed to Roads and Highway Minister, Inusah Fuseini to fulfill his promise that he made on the floor of Parliament regarding the nature of the roads.

"If you go to Taifa (Mr. Agyei top), the roads are terrible. Kwabenya, terrible! Haatso, terrible!! Abokobi; the state of roads in the constituency is just unbearable...

The "Minister in charge that as he promised the house before Mr. Speaker, he should honour his promise and make sure that some of the major roads in the constituency are constructed.”
