Spokesperson of the community, Ezekiel Isaac, who spoke with Aso Chronicle, said the current state of the road has been causing hardship to them especially during the rainy season.
He said sometimes, they mobilised the youths to mend the road.
He said majority of residents of the community are peasant farmers, adding that they also mobilised farmers from neighbouring villages within the area to repair the bad portions of the road.
He said several efforts were made the community to get the attention of the authorities to grade the road but nothing has been done.
“In fact, sometimes, I have to mobilise the youths including some from other neighbouring villages to come and repair some bad portions of the road and reinforce some culverts with stones before vehicles can cross to farms to carry crops to the market,” he said.
He noted that there were a lot of natural resources at the village that generate revenue to the council, saying there was need for the council authorities to, as a matter of urgency, come to their aid in grading the road and constructing bridges across some streams in the area.
“And we also want to appeal to the council authorities to provide us with additional boreholes to complement the existing ones. The present council chairman, Joseph Shazin, was the person who provided the existing borehole during his first tenure,” he added.
