#fixourfootbridgesNow

  • The uncompleted footbridges dotted along the highway leave residents and pedestrians with no choice but to cross the highway on foot, in the face of oncoming speeding vehicles.

    Organizers of the walk, dubbed #fixourfoofbridgesNow, say the walk will come on as scheduled despite recent threats against the conveners and organizers of the walk.

  • The contractor has also added steps to the project to serve as alternative for pedestrians who do not want to use the 50 metre stretch of the bridge.

    One more footbridge on the Adentan-Madina highway has been completed and being used by the public

  • As he rises to make his statement, none of these doomsday scenarios would be playing on Ken Ofori Atta’s mind. He has things to smile about: we are exiting from the IMF, his Adwuma Budget has made room for 165,000 public sector positions made up of 100,000 NABCO graduates, ...

  • The state, actively connived with a lawless, careless, criminally-minded citizen to kill him. His only crime? He is poor and the state does not care about the poor.

    Written By Malik Abass Daabu - Andrew Ansongmwine was in deep sleep, drinking from that cup of creamy warm milk of early morning sleep when he was interrupted by the urgent calls, followed by ungentle taps. It is his father, Ansongmwine Azaaviel, a labourer at the Adentan Municipality.
