Residents of Bomene, Woraso, Atabuorso and Panhosu could not hide their joy on Sunday as the Member of Parliament for Techiman South, Mr Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah commissioned boreholes and handed over to the beneficiary Communities.
The people greeted the flowing taps with broad smiles and loud shouts, signaling their extent of appreciation.
These projects, according to the Member of Parliament, were done from his personal resources as a donation to ensure his constituents get clean water to help reduce the rate of water-borne diseases.
In short remarks, Mr Adjei-Mensah Korsah noted that water was one of the basic needs for the survival of mankind, hence his determination to provide quality water for his people.
“During my campaign, one of the major challenges which caught my attention was the lack of potable water in these communities. Some even walk for miles before getting access to water” he noted.
According to him, he promised to provide 17 boreholes, with about 10 mechanized.
Five of them have been made ready for commissioning with the others to follow next week.
“This is just for the first phase and we are looking at adding another 50 for the second phase to these 17 as promised”, he revealed.
The Techiman South MP noted that some good amount of money was being invested into the water projects, and assured the people of his resolve to ensure all the various planned water projects were made ready and commissioned in his first term as their representative in Parliament.
Alongside the water Commissioning, was the provision of fertilizer for farmers in the entire Constituency to aid their farming activities.
The beneficiary Communities as well as the others all received 20 bags of fertilizer each as a support for their farming work.
In all, about 1,200 bags of fertilizer are earmarked for distribution in the first phase of the programme.
Nana Kwaku Antwi, Chief of Atabourso commended the MP for his kind gesture by providing the communities with drinking water, which had been a major headache for them.
He noted that water is life hence anyone who provides water should be seen as one who gives life.
The Chief advised Mr Adjei-Mensah Korsah to continue exhibiting humility, showing love and affection to his constituents.
He assured the MP that the people would support him on any day due to his kind-heartedness towards the needy and deprived in society.
