Sampa, Kokoa and adjoining areas in the Bono Region are noted for the production of cocoa, cashew and other cash crops but checks by Aniwaba indicate that residents and farmers battle with deplorable roads which hamper their daily activities.
Bono Regional correspondent Pious Odehyeba reports that the Sampa-Kokoa road makes commuting unmotorable especially when it rains.
“The road that runs through Kokoa to Jaman North is in a sorry state. Aside the bad nature of the road, the stretch is a potential haven for criminals and it will be difficult for any commuter to liberate themselves when ambushed by armed robbers,” he reported.
A resident of Kokoa, Nana Asare James popularly known as Culture, called on well-to-do residents and philanthropists to come to the aid of Kokoa and its environs in fixing the roads.
“Kokoa does not practice partisan politics so this is not, in anyway, to sabotage any government. We have scholars from this town and it is high time they all came to the aid of Kokoa,” he said.
Kokoa shares boundaries with Buni, Kumourkrom and Duadaso.
