Works to rehabilitate 30 km of roads in Atakpame begin

(Togo First) - Works to rehabilitate 30km of roads in Atakpamé (161 km from Lomé) were recently launched by the mayor of the Ogou 1 municipality, Yawa Kouigan. 

The works should add to the government’s efforts to further modernize Togo. “For many years now, the Togolese government has been implementing ambitious development programs aimed at creating a modern country with a sustainable and inclusive economic growth,” said the Atakpamé native. 

Details such as the project’s cost, how long it will take, and the names of companies in charge of the works were not disclosed since these works’ volume is yet to be determined. 

According to Kouigan, a participative approach was adopted to carry out the project. “We participate based on our capacities. Together, we reflect on what needs to be done. A party provides equipment, another provides fuel to power them, another pays workers, and another looks for materials,” she said. 

If we don’t start somewhere on our own, we will vainly ask others to provide us with what we need…,” the mayor declared. 

However, Kouigan urged companies located in Atakpamé to enter “a virtuous and fruitful partnership with the municipality, through the exercise of a societal responsibility freely subscribed where they will support the municipality to develop economic projects and preserve the environment.”
