There is a complaint from the residents and shop owners around the Odorkor Highway in the Greater Accra Region and they are complaining about the stinking waste water and plastics that have taken over the front of their shops and houses. According to the residents, they did so many efforts for the past three years to get the authorities to solve the problem but they have not yielded any results.
The MP for Ablekuma North, Akua Afriyei also established the statement that the problem has been constant, but said a contractor has been hired to work on the drains in the area to solve the problem. Speaking to Don Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don), the lawmaker explained that this is not a new problem and it has been nine months now, they have been working on the drainage issue if the residents will speak the truth then situation will be clear, the contractors have stated dredging the gutters. The fact is that the water and sand from the peak of the area joins the main gutter and this is also a enclosed gutter choked with sand, dirt and plastics.
he added that they are working but people have dredged from the police station, that’s Kaneshie First Light, people are still dredging, they have dredged passed Hansonic Junction and, so, he was requesting with the contractor to speed up work. Ms Akua Afriyie also expressed hopefulness that once the drain is cleaned all the way to Odorkor Traffic Light, the water will begin to flow. She bemoaned the indiscriminate dumping of refuse into the drains by the shop owners and residents in the area and advised them to desist from such action.
