Agona Nyakrom is one of the major towns within the Agona West Municipal Assembly in the Central Region. It is a farming community and the Traditional Capital of Nyakrom Traditional area, made up of about thirty towns, including Agona Swedru.

With the agitation from the inhabitants, the town is expected to become a district capital when next the administrative area is divided.
Unfortunately, despite the towns contribution to the Ghanaian economy through agriculture, human resources, and others, it hasn’t seen much development.

The town does not have any functional market or a befitting hospital. The town roads have become an eyesore with many potholes.

A police station building has been constructed and almost completed for years but has not been commissioned for use for unknown reasons.

The Police officers continue to operate from a very small and old building, making policing a difficult one for the officers.

The bridge has became very dilapidated and now a death trap to the inhabitants of Agona Nyakrom.

Fortunately, about some eight months ago, work on the bridge began by government but has stalled immediately after the bridge was demolished by them dividing the road into two rendering it unmotorable.

This situation has made movement of people, goods, and vehicles to and from the Many communities to Swedru and other communities extremely difficult one.

Information gathered suggests that the highway authority is planning to have a steel bridge besides the collapse one to assist the movement of people until the main one is done.

But, residents continue to make passionate appeal to the Assembly, their Member of Parliament, Cynthia Morrison, the Central Regional Minister, Highways and all relevant authorities to expedite action on the construction of the bridge and also attend to the many developmental challenges the town is confronted with.
