The Concern Youth of Denkyira Asikuma have taken to the streets in an effort to voice their dissatisfaction and worries regarding the absence of a trustworthy network for communication. Their catchphrase has become “no network, no vote.”
Apart from the municipal capital, Denkyira Asikuma is the second-largest community. They regret being left behind by the government’s digitization programme because there is no reception of a telecommunication network in the area. The situation is detrimental to businesses.
Several fervent demonstrators were present, all of whom believe that the lack of an adequate communication system in the area seriously impedes both their everyday lives and their capacity to fully engage in the democratic process.
Nana Kwame Adjei, Bretuo Abusuapanin of Denkyira Asikuma stated during the demonstration that you could only climb a tree, hill, or graveyard to make phone calls.
He asserted that their lives have been greatly influenced by the lack of a dependable communication network. He contends that people couldn’t access essential information, make emergency calls, or even remain in touch with their loved ones in times of need.
Meanwhile, the Protesters added, “It’s really annoying.”
We’ve been addressing this problem for a very long time. Like every other community, we should have improved communication services.
“There is a risk to our safety. We must be able to contact for assistance in an emergency, yet in the absence of a suitable network, we feel totally alone “.
As a result, they urged the government to finish a community communication initiative that had been abandoned.
