Akim Oda Concerned Citizens Association (AKOCCA) on Friday demonstrated through the principal streets of Akim Oda in the Birim Central Municipality of the Eastern Region over the deteriorating bridge in the area.

The protest was to register their displeasure over the government’s continuous neglect of the deplorable Jubilee bridge.

According to the demonstrators, the bridge, which was constructed 30 years ago, has not seen any facelift or rehabilitation.

They argue that even after it developed deep cracks and holes some 8 months ago making it impassable, no attention was given to it.

Drivers and transport union operators also joined to stage the demonstration.

Bismarck Ofori Attah, one of the organizers who spoke to Citi News indicated that the bridge has become a death trap.

“The bridge is deteriorating; it is now a death trap. We served notice to the Municipal Assembly and other top officials on several occasions to help us reconstruct the bridge but all to no avail. So we deem it necessary to organize this peaceful demonstration to raise awareness for the President to come to our aid in reconstructing this jubilee bridge.”
