Jasikan Principal Streets To See Face Lift - DCE

Roads through the Principal streets of Jasikan township being the Capital of the JASIKAN District in the Oti Region will soon see a quantum face lift.

The roads which have been in a very bad state for the past years have been given for award under Urban Roads projects.

The JASIKAN District Chief Executive Hon. Lawrence Kwami Aziale made this known in an interview on Friday June 5th during a massive communal labor he organized in collaboration with Nananom to fill potholes in the JASIKAN township.

Speaking to the media, the Honorable DCE who also doubled as the incoming MP for Buem attests to the fact that the town roads have been in a bad shape over the years and assured the people that, that problem will soon be a thing of the past.

“Roads in the Jasikan township have been very deplorable. This has been my headache since I took office as the DCE and I am glad to inform you that these roads have been awarded under Urban Roads and work will start on them soon” he said.

The Hon DCE also intimated that so far he has completed the JASIKAN old road which is the stretch from the District Assembly roundabout through HAUSA Zongo to Edwin Wood Processing Factory being part of the town roads awarded under the past NDC administration.

Worried about the current state of the roads in the district capital, the Hon DCE has for the past few days been organising communal labour to fill potholes on the roads pending the commencement of work by the contractor.

A team led by the DCE and Nana Boakye (the Gyeasehene of JASIKAN) together with some town folds have since Thursday, June 4th been shaping the major roads within the Jasikan township. The exercise also saw Assembly Members, elders of JASIKAN, Opinion leaders and most of the youths within the Jasikan town and its neighboring communities attending.

The Hon DCE also fumigated all churches and mosques within Jasikan township ahead of resumption of religious activities in the district following the lifting of the band by H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo. The DCE assured the rest of the communities in the district that the fumigation exercise for mosques, churches and schools will be carried out throughout the district as means of fighting Covid19 pandemic.
