Residents of the Duu Electoral area in the Wa East district of the Upper West Region have decided to ban all politicians from campaigning in the area during the 2024 election season.
At a mini durbar to express their concerns to duty bearers, the residents lamented the poor condition of their roads and the lack of electricity in the electoral area.
The Duu electoral area includes three important farming communities within the Wa East district: Duu, Saahe, and Jonfian.
After two tragic deaths of young people trying to cross a river to reach Funsi, the Wa East district capital for healthcare, some concerned residents took it upon themselves to repair parts of the road.
The Duu electoral area has been without electricity for eight years.
They demand their fair share of the national resources, pointing out that they’ve dutifully paid taxes to the Wa East district assembly.
As the Duu electoral area takes this bold stand against neglect, their message is clear: they seek long-overdue attention and action from those in power.
