Ex-Sinoe County Senator, Mambutu V. Nyepan, has decried unbearable challenges facing the people of the county as a result of bad road conditions and other efforts-impeding factors.

These conditions, the former Senator, argued are contributing to slow pace of development in the county as they also pose serious challenge to the growth and development of the country as well.

Speaking to journalists recently, Mr. Nyepan said for the past few months the county has been faced with difficulties by travellers and residents due to dilapidated road condition.

“The pace of development in the county is very slow and lack of accessibility is barely hampering the reach of the county,” he said, and added “it is very tedious to cope with as there is a need for redress.”

Nyepan indicated that they have not scored success in the direction of roads, though over US$10 million during his tenure was raised for road rehabilitation and whenever rainy season comes they have to experience the same bad road condition.

“We need to change our strategies so lots of attention is placed on the southeastern roads to be done portion by portion,” he added. In 2014, the ex-Senator lost to Milton Teahjay who served as Superintendent when Nyepan was at the Senate.

According to him, there is no substantive development that exists in the county now due to the lack of funding; as for the past two years now, the issue of receiving fund and offering scholarship are not glaring for the county`s growth.

“I hope our statutory leaders will make those necessary resources available in order to meet the needs of the county,” he said. He has further indicated that the current hardship in the county perhaps can be alluded to the economic meltdown and other challenges that the country is encountering, “there were funding for development projects during my tenure, unless now that of the legislative projects”.

Nyepan was elected senator during the 2005 general and presidential elections and he served for the period of nine years and was voted out during the special senatorial election.
