George Andah seek answers for constituents on Senya Landing Wharf

The MP for Awutu Senya West took the floor of parliament in a move described as unprecedented. Nenyi George Andah, who has had his constituency mentioned in the national budget, took the floor to follow up on a Landing Wharf that has been promised the people of Senya.

Sitting in the gallery of the Parliament House, a twenty man delegation from the constituency, eagerly waited to hear their MP, ask questions that have bothered them for a while. The delegation led by the leader of Senya Beraku Fishers and Associated Industries represented a community who have waited for a Landing Wharf since 2008 when the first sod-cutting for the project happened.

Nenyi George Andah, asked the Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture Elizabeth Afoley Quaye, what plans the ministry has to begin work in Senya. Reacting to the question, the Minister assured of Senya's inclusion in the second batch of communities receiving the facility. The Minister assured of commencement of work within six months.

Persisting with follow up questions, Hon. Andah quizzed to know why his constituency wasn't considered in the first phase and if there would be any engagements and/or sensitization before the commencement of the project. The Minister responded to these follow-up question, indicating that stakeholder engagements will be organized and the project should be completed within a year and half of commencement.
