NPP Members Blame NDC MP Over Lack Of Portable Water In The Savannah Region
Members of the New Patriotic Party in Damongo have issued a press release condemning comments of their MP that the town will be connected to pipe-borne water within the first three months of a new government under Ex-President John Dramani Mahama.
According to the Constituency Chairman Alhaji Adam Braimah, the MP is to blame for lack of potable water in the Savannah regional capital.
"For these eight(8) long years of the NDC, at a time Hon. Garlus was, first DCE and subsequently an MP, he failed woefully to take any step whatsoever to provide water for the good people of Damongo" the statement says.
Earlier, Hon. Adam Mutawakilu said Damongo and its surrounding towns would get safe drinking water three months after the swearing-in ceremony if Ex-President John Dramani Mahama wins the 2020 election on a Bole based radio station Nkilgi FM.
But members of NPP are further criticizing him for being too ambitious for saying they will complete such a vast project within a short time for the Savannah regional capital and its surrounding towns.
"His claim that water can be provided within three months in itself is unfortunate as the MP is well aware that it is not technically and practically possible to start construction of, and finish a water project to areas such as Damongo and its environs within such period."
The statement signed by the constituency Chairman, however, assures the people that the government has already secured parliamentary approval for the water project and will inaugurate its construction soon.
"The Akuffo government began the processes for the Damongo water project will cut the sod for it and God willing the good people of Ghana and those of Damongo constituency will permit him to commission this project".
Meanwhile, as the two major political parties continue to ravage each other over who can help the people to gain access to potable drinking water, the main source of water for them is the Agriculture Dam" Agric Dam" located in Canteen, a suburb of the town.
