The Member of Parliament for Builsa South constituency, Dr. Clement Abas Apaak, has made financial provision to Zayoka Constructions Limited to drill 10 new boreholes at a cost of Ghc 300,000.00 for selected communities in Builsa South.
The project, which is slated to be completed in three months, aims to alleviate the difficulties that women and children face in accessing safe water in the area.
Speaking to our reporter, the MP noted that the increase in population in the area has led to an increase in the demand for portable drinking water.
“Water is the core of sustainable development and is very critical for socio-economic development, a healthy ecosystem, and human survival. As it is said in the holy book,” he stressed.
He added that so far, the initiative has begun in 10 communities and will soon advance to others as he aims to entirely end the challenges of inadequate water in the area.
Some of the beneficiary communities are Fumbisi Suik, Uwasi Abaayeri, Fumbisi Baasa Tampusa, Kanjarga Lovogsa, Wiesi Goag, Gbedema Jagsa Guuta, Gbedema Garibeansa, Doninga Banyansa, Gbedembilisi Nakpansah, and Fumbisi Bachiesa
Meanwhile, a few months ago, the legislator spent GHC 55,800.00 repairing 29 malfunctioning boreholes.
