Sokode-Juaso (ER), Nov 11, GNA - Mr J.B. Danquah Adu, the Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, is assisting three communities in his constituency with 60.5 million cedis for an electrification project as part of efforts to promote cottage industries.
The MP has provided 30 electric poles to the three communities - Sokode-Juaso, Tontro and Ahweadian - from his share of the MP's Common Fund.
Sokode-Juaso, hemmed between Koforidua and Kukurantumi, was the scene of spontaneous jubilation when people took delivery of their share of 10 poles on Thursday.
People who have sat at vantage points throughout the day following information received that the MP was bringing them some electric poles, jubilated when the Dupaul Teak Company's load carrier entered the town.
Some told the GNA that they were overwhelmed by the sensitivity shown by the MP in attempting to abate their plight of having to live in darkness yet so close to Kukurantumi that hosts a VRA sub-station and Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital.
Mr Douglas Martin Asare, Abuakwa North Constituency Chairman of the NPP who handed over the items, assured the people of the commitment of the MP to team-up with them to solve their common problems. He said it was the belief of the MP that no community, no matter its size, would be neglected.
Opanin Robert Kena, chief of Sokode-Juaso, pledged the readiness of the people to team-up him to further enhance the livelihood of the people.
Until now, the people of Sokode-Juaso had to rely on a generator provided by the management of Kowus Motors to the local Presbyterian Church. 11 Nov 05
