S/R: "No road, no vote" – Tari No.2 residents warn

Politics
Bad road

Some residents of Tari No.2, a farming community in the Daboya-Mankargu Constituency in the Savanna Region, have threatened not to vote in the 2020 general elections if their bad roads are not fixed.

The angry locals mounted a billboard right in the middle of the road that leads to Tari No.2 which says: ‘No Road, No Vote’.

A resident, Waliu Awal, told Class News that: “If the road in the area is not worked on, we would not vote”.

“Sick people in the community are dying because it is impossible to pass through the road to Daboya to access the health centre there”, he complained.

The Savanna Regional Minister, Salifu Adam Braimah, who used the road two weeks ago to Lukula, had to cut short his visit because of the poor road network.

Two of the vehicles in his convoy could not cross to the other side of the constituency because of a recent downpour which flooded the area.

As a result of the heavy downpour, the Daboya-Mankarigu Constituency of the Savanna Region has been divided into two.
