Most times I do wonder if there are indeed leaders managing the country.
Since this highway opened countless of Ghanaians have lost their lives and said leaders of the country have no brains to simply put barb wire around the highway in order to stop lazy and illiterate Ghanaians from crossing.
If such project is costly you can pay Agya koo some money and advertise how dangerous it is to cross the road.
