Doryumu Calls for equal Infrastructural Right

In-spite of the ongoing Infrastructural and developmental whirlwind blowing in some parts of the country, Doryumu, a community in the Shai -Osudoku district of the Eastern corridor, though not remote, is still facing serious stigma and discrimination in terms of Infrastructural development.

When Newslinegh took a trip to the area, we discovered challenges, but interesting economic and developmental challenges, which make life difficult for the people of Doryumu. Despite having skills to do projects, lack of capital and resources is inhibiting their capacity to generate income for self-sustenance.

The Chief of the Doryumu traditional area, Nene Adjartey Konor II is calling on the government to extend the ongoing infrastructural development projects to the area, especially construction of good road to facilitate development in the community.

“Even though, it was from our query site Dr Kwame Nkrumah got rocks to build Akosombo dam and Tema Harbour which has contributed to national development, yet our town has still been relegated to the background in terms of road and rail network”. He revealed.

When making this appeal in an interview with Newslinegh, Nene Konor II stated that, the Doryumu community which is predominantly into farming, need good roads to transport their agricultural produce to the market and lacks of basic social infrastructural development such as good roads, portable water supply, among others will cause a serious stir on the development of their community

“How will the standard of living of the people of this community improve where these facilities are lacking?” he asked.

According to him, the provision of basic social amenities and infrastructural facilities will not only fight poverty, but will also bust unemployment and youth restiveness, as well as boost the socio-economic development of the area, the state and that of the country.

Nene Adjartey went further to list some social amenities Doryumu town lacks for them to be addressed by both the presidential and parliamentary candidates when any of them come to power on January, 2017. “Doryumu is 124 years old after our forefathers resettled here from the Rocky Mountain.
“We have only one road off the main Tema-Akosombo road which leads to the Doryumu Township, but has not been constructed which is very disastrous to their health due to the nature of the road and we are therefore appealing to the government to help rectify this devastating menace of the community” He emphasized.

Nene Adjartey Konor II is also calling on Ghanaians to pray for the leaders and for the successful conduct of the upcoming general elections to ensure violent-free election in the country.
He also litigates for peaceful co-existence among Ghanaians and urged the nation to tolerate one another irrespective of ethnic, religious and political affiliation
