If the road from Nkwanta linking these localities is not restored, the inhabitants of five settlements in the Nkwanta South Municipality in the Oti Region have promised to boycott any elections held there.
The cities of Keri, Odomi, Gekrong, Pawa, and Kue are among them.
Several drivers and riders on motorcycles told the Ghana News Agency that they had decided to park their vehicles rather than shell out cash for unnecessary repairs and upkeep.
Mr. Jonas Gbedenyo, an assemblyman from the Keri South Electoral Area, claimed that despite his letters to the appropriate authorities protesting about the poor road condition, nothing was done.
He said that farmers in the five villages were unable to transport their agricultural products to the municipal centre for sale.
“Sometime in September of last year, the bridge that connects Keri and Gekrong was severely damaged, making it impossible for all of the tourists who had travelled home to celebrate the annual yam festival in Keri to make their scheduled departures.
However, the locals decided to cover that area with gravel and stones so that motorcyclists could transport the tourists back to their original locations.
The road is getting worse and worse this year because of the beginning of the rains, he claimed.
According to Mr. Gbedenyo, if nothing is done to fix the road in the upcoming month, no cars or motorcycles would be able to use it, which might be devastating for the residents of these towns.
