Prof. Yankah salutes residents along Eastern Corridor for enduring “most crooked” road

It was meant to be a smooth adventure to a part of the country relatively unknown to the Minister of State, In-Charge of Tertiary Education, Professor Kwesi Yankah.

However, not even the sight of a beautiful, greeny and gigantic mountainous landscape could atone for the ordeal of a bumpy ride on a “crooked, rocky and unfriendly” road, intimidating to the most robust sport utility vehicles (SUVs).

 

This is a summary of the experience of Prof. Yankah’s tour of the “northern wing” of the Volta Region and his torture on the Eastern Corridor road.

The Minister, who was invited by the St. Francis College of Education as the Guest Speaker at the school’s 10th Congregation saluted the people of the Volta Region, who frequently ply the Eastern Corridor route, for their endurance on a road he says is perhaps, the most unfriendly he had traversed in Ghana throughout his life.

According to Prof. Yankah, the whole of Ghana owes an apology to the residents along the Eastern Corridor road.

The seemingly worried Minister, in delivering his speech, said the nature of the road meant that “something” ought to be done.

 

 

“Let me candidly lament how we, as a people of Ghana, owe an apology to all residents along the celebrated Eastern Corridor, for having inflicted on you this pain and torment of a road, that is perhaps the most crooked, the most rocky and the most unfriendly road I have ever traversed in this country.

“I salute your sense of endurance, and I do hope that something is being done about it, as a mark of respect for your hardwork all these years,” he said.

Listen to Prof. Yankah:
