NIGHT life in Kumasi is dying

SOMETHING is happening in Kumasi before the eyes of all residents, and which is a huge eyesore but very few people seem to talk about it.
It looks like nobody not even the city authorities care about the malfunctioning of streets lights in the metropolis as virtual darkness engulf the streets in the night.
Clearly one of the factors that go into making life in a community especially in the city interesting and worth living is the availability of electric power on the streets.
Street lighting goes to bring life to the community and check crime among other benefits .
Without power many activities cannot go on effectively and the residents and visitors would be the eventual losers.
Quite disturbingly Kumasi is gradually being driven into this situation and the big question is why the authorities look on unconcerned as the situation worsens day after day.
Just take a drive in the city in the night and you will realize the sort of mess that Kumasi finds itself.
The first time visitor to the Garden City in the night would definitely be dumbfounded.
I recently overhead two gentlemen discussing the way night life in Kumasi gad gone dead.
They alluded the situation to a number of reasons including armed robbery and poor lighting system on the streets among others.
