Paramount Chief of the Lawra Traditional Area, Naa Puowelle Karbo has appealed to government to construct feeder roads in the area to make them more motorable for economic activities. He mentioned specifically the Nadowli-Lawra-Nandom-Hamile road which linked the place to neighbouring Burkina Faso.
He also called for an extension of the lawra town road which according to him was constructed many years ago under the District Capital Roads Improvement Programme to cover the entire township and the Lawra Senior High School and the market.
The Paramount Chief made the appeal at the “Kob-Bine” festival.
He urged government to consider expanding facilities for water supply to correspond with the increasing population of the area as the current system cannot meet the demands of the people.
The Upper West Regional Minister, Alhaji Issahaque Salia,on his part advised the people to be tolerant of each others views on political, social, religious or ethnic matters in order to co-exist peacefully for sustainable development, and urged traditional authorities to be at the fore front of the campaign for unity.
