The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bolgatanga-East Constituency, Dr. Dominic Ayine, has gone to the aid of over 400 residents in the Asongi-Kunkua community by providing them with a much-needed borehole after years of struggling for potable water.

The intervention follows a compelling feature, “Sweat for Potable Water,” produced by Moses Apiah of A1 Radio, shedding light on the significant challenges faced by the residents in accessing clean and potable water.

The feature brought to the forefront the harsh reality of the kilometers-long journeys undertaken by women and children daily to fetch water, often from unreliable and unsanitary sources.

The compelling visuals and heartfelt narratives depicted the urgency of the situation, prompting swift action from the legislator.

According to Dr. Ayine, providing potable drinking water to the residents was a basic necessity as it is a fundamental human right, hence his continued support in the area over the years.

He encouraged the residents to properly maintain the facility.

Some of the residents expressed appreciation, with a call for more support as the community will be underserved with a single borehole.

According to them, without an additional borehole, there will be too much pressure on the current one.

Festus Akugre, Assembly member for the area, also emphasized the need for additional boreholes. According to him, though they appreciate the kind gesture of the legislator, additional boreholes will help meet the demands of the residents in their quest for potable water.

He appreciated A1 Radio for coming to their aid by sharing their plight, and he hoped that it would continue the good work for Mother Ghana.

Meanwhile, the over 74 hand pumps and seven mechanized boreholes initiative that was started by the government of Ghana through the Northern Development Authority in 2018 to alleviate the plight of residents regarding clean water in the Bolgatanga-East District continues to be a matter of concern. The initiative, according to personnel at the Authority, lacks funding opportunities to kick off.
