A group calling itself Concerned Residents of Kasoa have threatened to march through the principal streets of the area to protest against the poor road network.

The planned demonstration exercise dubbed “FixKasoaHighway” has been slated for Friday, October 20, 2023 and its aimed at calling on residents, commuters and others to express their displeasure at the sorry state of the international highway.

A statement signed by Akwasi Addo, Kwame Addo and Kwasi Kusi Damoah,- conveners of the Concerned Residents of Kasoa – declaring their planned exercise said the protest is long overdue.

“We are even of the view that the demonstration is long overdue considering the number of job losses, life losses and existing life-threatening situations associated with the current deplorable state of the highway and even more particularly the situation at the tollbooth,” the statement read in part.

According to the statement, they have always had high hopes in the leadership of the country, most especially stakeholders of their area to help solve the problems at hand but the more they wait the more their situations escalate.

“We have always trusted leadership of the country to take proactive steps in alleviating the problem but the more we wait on them the more we get our hopes jeopardized,” the statement said.

To them, they see demonstrations as the quickest tool to conveying their message to the government for immediate response, hence the impending action.

“And so, at this point we trust the demonstration as the quickest instrument to carry our message to the government for an immediate response,” the statement continued.

They urged all residents of Kasoa and it’s environs to join hands in the much-anticipated demonstration against the government and its related agencies.

They further pleaded with the police to showcase a high level of professionalism during this protest to ensure that peace prevails.

“We’re pleading with the police to exhibit high standards of professionalism during the demonstration even as we urge participants to also act accordingly to the laws of the state,” the statement continued.
