The people of Dantano, in Asunafo South are being deprived of their fair share of the national development cake.
How can one public toilet built in the 1990s and has never been renovated serve a community with a population of more than 1000 people.
There is always a struggle amongst the people to get access to good drinking water. Children of Dantano have very uncomfortable environments for studying which are not conducive for studying.
The classrooms are overcrowded or should I say ‘chocked’. Although there is a shortage of classrooms, teachers are posted to come and teach. Is it look imperative to post teachers to community with no classrooms. Should I say overstaffing of teachers leads to adding no value to the lives of the children of Dantano.
We have been voting since democracy started but we seem not to have seen any significant benefit to Dantano. All the administrations have neglected Dantano. In this modern Ghana, people of my community have died at home, on the farm and other places purely because public transport vehicles are not willing to go to Dantano because of the very bad roads leading to the town.
What is most annoying being that nobody can wear a e white shirt or dress and journey to or from Dantano without turning reddish brown?
This purely due to our dusty roads. We had to travel far away for water when the only pipe in our town broke down but we still vote to elect representatives every election year.
One may ask, ‘Do we have an MP ‘? The answer is a Big Yes, we have. What if the sitting MP is not helping tell us what is next? The Poor performance of our leaders always leaves our communities behind.
For how long can the people of Dantano continue to vote, when they die because of the lack of basic needs. Basic needs that most communities have we lack.
About four months ago, a man died of snake bite since the only clinic there does not even have tetanus to inject the person, how much more anti snake bite. He had to be moved to a nearby town. . We are tired and fed up with our situation.
We have advices ourselves on the way forward if basic needs like healthcare, education, roads, and public toilet cannot be provided. How does anyone expect us to survive and keep farming to support the people in the cities? No wonder most people want to live in the city.
Surely the people of Dantano cannot be left out. Even in our worst conditions, some of us will shine.
Shine Dantano Shine
