DM2008072222:GHAED:SOCIAL:PERSONALITIES:APR 1961 – Yes! They’re Work Crazy! – The people of Essuakyir built this magnificent bridge and saved their people a long and tiring detour round the river. If the bridge had been built by contractors it would have cost a bout 9,000, but the villagers brought the cost down to 1,700 by using their own labour. It was a great achievement. The do-it-yourself craze has hit Ghana’s villages. Our country folk are building their own bridges, laying their own roads, setting up their own Post Offices. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
