The enclaves of the heavens are darker as pauper’s pocket and the people of Gahenna are patiently waiting for illumination and peace. Is there any hope for Bimbila and Nankpanduri?
Street lighting is a vital social amenity that brings about several benefits to both pedestrians and drivers – including improving road safety, reducing criminal activities and increasing the general business and living climate of urban and peri-urban areas. The significance of street lighting cannot be underestimated because of the vital role it plays in our communities.
It is very sad to denounce this, but as a concern citizen and not wanting to be a spectator, the 1992 Constitution gives me the power to criticize constructively.
It is a fact that, for the past 10 years, the street lights at parliament and other state buildings around the environs are not working. I have been a long user of the Osu Oxford Road and Angola lane leading to the state House and I have never seen the street lights working, the evidence to this is my self since I grew up there and witnessing it my self.
The National Cathedral is still under construction, opposite is also the Ghana Maritime Authority Office which is also under construction and there are no street lights to improve safety of the driver and pedestrian but ironically our dear elected leaders use the roads often, but it seem the headlamp of the V8 is enough, the convoy with security personnels makes them feel comfortable, should I call that metaphorically blind? leaving the lives of pedestrian in danger.
The Street lights at the Ministries of Ghana are not working, at that place we have the Ministry of Education, Ministry Of Information, Ministry of Road Safety and transport among others but it’s very sad that even places where state properties are kept don’t have a good lighting system.
The Office of the president, Ridge Annex is not excluded. Is Ghana poor to the extent that we can’t afford street lights?
I plead to the government, probably it has not been noticed, with this piece I hope we see changes.
