God’s Love Preparatory School,

Box Lg, 6 Legon,


14th May 2021


The Minister of Transport – Ministries,

Box A1422, Accra.


 Dear Sir,


I write to officially add my voice to the call by Ghanaians to help improve the public transport road system in the country.

Road transport remains the major means of travelling in Ghana, but it is saddled with challenges.

Poor road infrastructure remains a major challenge since the roads in many parts of the country including those in my village, Kwame Danso are not motorable when it rains. In other instances, accidents have become rampant due to the poor work done by the police on our roads, corruption, and driver-related factors.

Corruption which leads to the award of road contracts to friends and family who know nothing about roads and the resulting bad roads constructed have also affected the quality of roads in many parts of the country.

Sir, I am of the view that, we can bring about improvement in the public transport system in the country if we consider the following two suggestions.

First, the government must expand the public transportation network by building better and more durable roads and providing other means of transportation such are rail transport.

Again, we need to improve safety on our roads by installing street lights, and traffic lights and introducing road signs on our roads to help drivers, pedestrians, and passengers. This will help improve the quality of the roads and deal with avoidable accidents.

I look forward to your ministry considering these suggestions for improving the public transport system in Ghana.


Yours faithfully,


Kukua Exam-Hall
