According to her, she was robbed together with another family, specifically an Egyptian family hence her decision never to use the route again.


In the words of the media personality, “Every time I use the motorway, I am scared. The first time I used the motorway in my life, I was robbed on the motorway. I was coming from Akosombo, I was with a family, I think they were an Egyptian family. And we were robbed on the motorway. So I decided I was not going to use the motorway again,”

Naa Ashokor further indicated that she resorted to prayer when she found herself using the road again. While expressing concern for those who ply the road every day, she called on the government to do something about the situation. Her comments join other voices including that of Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie, that have called on the government to commence repairs on the Accra-Tema motorway as it has been long due.

“Fast forward to some time in 2014, I went back to using a motorway because I had to go to PramPram. And every time I hit the road, I pray. When I tell you, I say Psalm 23 and the Lord’s Prayer the whole time. I’m not joking. It’s a scary experience, and it’s gotten worse now, I don’t know how people who come from Tema to Accra are able to do this every day. It must be very difficult. Clearly, The road is bad now. The tollbooths have made it even so much worse, and we’re calling on the government to do something about it now,” she emphasized.
