Bawku West District Assembly moves to improve on water and sanitation

Victoria Ayamba, District Chief Executive for Bawku West, has announced some steps taken by the Assembly to improve on water and sanitation in the District.

Mrs Ayamba said this during the inspection and handing over of a six-unit classroom block and a ward for both male and female to the Binaba Health Center over the weekend at Binaba in the Bawku West District of the Upper East Region.

Ayamba said the Assembly has trained two staff to manage the Zebilla, Binaba and Sapelga water system so as to produce portable drinking water to address the acute water shortage that occasionally hits the area.

She added that the Assembly has constructed a mechanized borehole for the Binaba market and other structures to aid traders to engage in ventures that would improve on their socio-economic lives.

She said to improve on the sanitation conditions in the area, the Assembly has renovated two toilet facilities for both male and female at the Binaba Health Center.

According to her, these facilities were secured through the Assembly’s share of the common fund adding that “these were instituted to improve on the quality of livelihoods of the people in the area”.

Mrs Ayamba said government has put in a number of interventions such as the “Planting for Food and Jobs”, “Free Senior High School” and the “Nations Builders Corps” among others to create viable employment for the people, and urged the constituents to support government to achieve these set goals.

The DCE urged residents in the area to be agents of change and support the Assembly to attain the open defecation free targets, crime free and a clean environment for unborn generations.
