The Member of Parliament for the Tamale Central constituency, Ibrahim Mohammed Murtala is set to roll out a boreholes project across the constituency which is aimed at installing 50 mechanized boreholes in all the 18 electoral areas of the constituency.
The installations of the mechanized boreholes are in fulfillment of his campaign promise to provide portable drinking water for the people of the constituency should he get elected to represent the people in parliament in the 2020 polls.
Speaking to the media on behalf of the MP, the Tamale Central Constituency Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress Umar Abdul Razak assured the constituents that the MP will never relent in his promise to the constituents and will continue to put measures in place to improve their welfare.
Mr Razak added that sustainability of the boreholes is something that is of paramount importance and hence the managers of the boreholes in collaboration with community members will take a token for the maintenance of the boreholes should they break down.
The Assemblyman for the Buglang Fong Electoral Area, Fuseini Ukasha, who spoke to A1 News at the sideline of the media interaction was excited about the project, indicating it will go a long way to address the scarce water situation in the constituency.
Mr. Fuseini Ukasha said, “the MP should linger the good works he is doing for the people of Tamale central”.
Mohammed Murtala, former MP for Nanton constituency and former Deputy Trade Minister, was elected MP for the Tamale Central constituency in the December 2020 election.
