As I was going to work this morning, I was confronted by the sight of two bulldozers -- one on either side of the Spintex road -- doing the necessary grading of the road to expand it to the four-lane the new NDC government promised us.
Almost seven months into the government, this is an exemplification--if ever--of delivering on a long-held promise the outgone government failed to work on.
As Ghanaians keep their fingers crossed for the work to continue apace (and, frankly, where it's at, it would be ignoniminous to stop!), it might be a good idea to remember our market men and women who have stalls all along the said-road. Their livelihoods might just come at the expense of "development"--read: "a reduction in traffic for already-too many cars on the road".
This stall (pictured) is but one of many. Tomatoes are not the only food the market woman lady is selling, though the picture might belie this fact.
I'm all for development, but as they say in this part of the world (and as per the inscription of the market stall), Onyame Bekyre, or God will show the way!
