CLOSE INFRASTRUCTURE GAP

Posted on Posted in Publications

CLOSE THE INFRASTRUCTURE GAP BETWEEN THE REGIONAL AND DISTRICT CAPITALS TO ENSURE SMOOTH RUNING OF GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE BUSINESSES.
The infrastructure of any country, society or organization is a major necessity for the growth and development of any civilized world, these infrastructures which are made up of basic amenities or facilities such as roads and transport, communications , power suppliers , water and buildings enables government and private business to flourish, but the absence of quality infrastructure in most of our regional and district capitals has been a setback in our socio economic development making us lack behind many advanced and civilized countries.
We therefore wish to make a passionate appeal to the Nana Addo NPP led government to consider as a matter of urgency and a priority to commit resources into improving our existing infrastructure in the country to make them user friendly for businesses and corporations in the country to be competitive in the global working environment.
Government should also ensure the providers of these infrastructures do quality work and service across all regions and district in the country, and avoid situations and instances where mobile telephony services in the regional capitals far defer from the services in the district and the smaller towns and villages a situation responsible for people migrating from these affected communities to the urban centers.
Provision of sub standard infrastructure projects and services has been a drain on our finances as government and private business concerns do spend monies that could have been used for expansion and growth diverted for maintenance and repairs due to frequent breakdown of some of these sub standard infrastructures.
Our lack of maintenance culture is also part of our problem of deficiency in our infrastructures, most of these facilities can be left unattended when it breaks down or becomes faulty.
Our findings have shown that the lack of these infrastructures is affecting production of goods and services and the earlier governments turns attention to it the better.
Most access roads in our major cities and towns are nothing to write home about and in most cases very absurd and horrible, roads are one of the things that brings out the good looks of a city or town but not even our two major cities of Accra and Kumasi can meet the standard of a modern city when it come to town roads.
