The ruling All People’s Congress (APC) Member of Parliament for Constituency 110, Chernor Ramadan Maju Bah, has taken the Sierra Leone Roads Authority to task over the reconstruction of certain roads in the city.
Speaking to a cross section of Journalists yesterday at parliament, he said infrastructural development in the country was zero, adding that there were certain roads within his constituency which had gone extremely bad despite complaints to SLRA.
Hon. Bah mentioned the roads at Tengbeh Town, Signal Hill Road, Main Motor Road at Wilberforce and Bath Street as in states of disrepair.
He said the road at Tengbeh Town between the market and the WFP office was divided into two with one area collapsing causing a serious threat to inhabitants residing beside it and also causing serious vehicular traffic.
He further complained that there was a hole along the Main Motor Road at Wilberforce which had been there for over six months causing accidents and threats to people’s lives.
“We have made several calls and efforts to encourage the SLRA to work on the roads and we have even spoken to the director of maintenance C.Y Johnson for which he promised that upon completion of their assignment in resurfacing the road used by President Ernest Bai Koroma at Goderich, they will re-do the roads,” he disclosed.
Despite that assurance and since the request was made Hon. Bah went on to state that it had taken three to four months for which no action had been taken.
“What they did on the Tengbeh Town road was that they took some granite to the area creating the impression that work was to be done in earnest.”
As an MP, he explained, he had the obligation to his constituents in ensuring that their legible demands were catered for.
