Accra, Sept. 4, GNA – Mr Ken Atta-Boakye, a
native of Hiawu-Besease in the Ashanti Region, has appealed to Government to
help in constructing the bad roads of the area.
He said the roads if sorted could provide a
short useful link from Mankranso to Nkawie without using the long Abuakwa
circuitous route which often occurs on Wednesday during the periodic market
held at Nkawie.
Mr Atta-Boakye made the appeal in an
interview with the Ghana News Agency in Accra.
Hiawu-Besease is an ancient prosperous
village that lies 12 miles South-West of Kumasi in the Atwima Nwabiagya
The settlement is also a cocoa producing
area noted for its abundant food supplies such as plantain, cocoyam,
vegetables, kontomire, and cassava and market women from Kumasi often shuttle
in for goods to trade.
He said the Middle School of the area
established in 1945 serves various communities including Pasoro, Akropong,
Ntensere, Mfensi, Adankwame, Askraka, Nkontomire, Afigya, Nerebehi, Afari, Mim,
Sepaasi, Amoabin and Ahodwo.
He said notable individuals who started
their childhood education in the area include former President John Agyekum
Kufuor, B.F.Kusi, D. R. Ofei, GM Owusu, Kofi and Ken Atta-Boakye, John Owusu
Ansah, Yaw Kwarteng and Dennis Adjei Brenyah.
Mr Atta-Boakye commended the Hiawu-Besease
citizens in North America for taken it upon themselves to renovate the school
and promote other development projects
He said currently, the community is beset
with transportation problems due to a three-mile laterite surface road that
takes off from Sepaase and extends for another two miles to link the Abuakwa
–Mankranso main road.
He called on government to assist them in
