Stop Being Arrogant And Fix Poor Roads – Minority To Amoako-Atta

The Minority in Parliament has slammed the Roads and Highways Minister Kwasi Amoako-Atta over his comments slighting Ghanaians who demonstrate in demand for better roads.

The Minister called the bluff of such protesters arguing demonstrations do not fix or build roads.

According to the minister, Amoako-Atta is appalled by educated people who embark on such exercises.

“It is unreasonable for anybody to say that all roads everywhere should be fixed simultaneously. So these demonstrations should stop. Sometimes you get people who are supposed to know better, well-educated people who should advise their colleagues joining demonstrations. Demonstrations don’t build roads,” he told the media when inspecting the 31.7km Kwafokrom to Apedwa road in the Eastern Region which forms part of the Accra-Kumasi dualization project.

But speaking to Starr News, the minority spokesperson on Roads and Transport Governs Kwame Agbodza accused the minister of exhibiting arrogance.

The Adaklu MP argued protests are the only language the government understands and so such protests will continue until all the poor roads are fixed.

“The Roads Minister understands that…one of the ways citizens are allowed to express their displeasure at what is happening is to protest peacefully. He is a minister because his party used numerous platforms to protest over everything.

“So when he says it doesn’t tickle him, I don’t know what he means…I think the Roads Minister should applaud people for choosing a method that is allowed in the constitution…his job is not to be tickled, his job is to fix the roads in this country…We shall protest, in fact he will see more protests, we are not perturbed by the insults but Ghanaians should notice this is the arrogance of power by the NPP.”
