The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Damongo Constituency in the Savannah Region have extended their deepest appreciation on behalf of the Chiefs and people of the Damongo to the President Nana Addo-Danquah Akufo-Addo for providing portable drinking water to the regional capital and its environs.
Speaking at a press conference today ahead of the President sod cutting ceremony for the Damongo water project on Wednesday, the NPP Chairman of the constituency, Alhaji Adam Braimah said the achievement in the provision of water to the people by President Akufo-Addo will solve the age old perennial and severe water crisis of Damongo and it’s environs.
According to him, the development will end the long suffering of the people of Damongo.
He said the water problem in Damongo and Gonjaland as whole has existed since Ghana gained independence and governments upon goverments have promised to provide water to the people but failed.
He further used the opportunity to thank President Akufo-Addo and his government for making efforts to ensure Damongo gets water and also the minister for Sanitation and Water Resources Hon Cecilia Abena Dapaah for her hard-work in bringing the Damongo water project to a reality.
He again thanked the NPP parliamentary candidate for the Damongo constituency, Lawyer Abu Jinapor for working hard to ensure that portable water is extended to Damongo.
He further acknowledged the efforts of Lawyer Abu Jinapor to ensure the people of the constituency enjoy good drinking water which
many past politicians attempted and failed.
He added that the era of boreholes, dams and walking long distances in such for water will be a thing of the past after completion of the project since portable water will flow into the homes of the residence of the constituents.
He used the opportunity to urge the people of the region to give the President a rousing welcome into Damongo on Wednesday.
Meanwhile the President will later today commission a small town water project in Yapei in the Central Gonja District of the Savannah Region.
