The Kwahu East District Assembly is embarking on an all-important project to construct boreholes and sanitary facilities in Akropong and Nsuase communities in the district.
The project is aimed at providing easy access to safe and potable water, while improving hygiene in the most vulnerable rural communities and smaller towns across the District.
Addressing Assembly members at its ordinary meeting at Mpraeso, District Chief Executive (DCE) of the area, Emmanuel Ata Ofori explained that, the boreholes will also provide uninterrupted water supply to the to the 10 seater two separate Water Closet (WC) toilet facilities in the communities to properly maintain the facilities.
According to him, the move is partially aimed at ensuring that communities sustain their open defecation free status, and improve the management of liquid and solid wastes.
He urged Ghanaians to rally behind the Akufo-Addo government since it was still committed to fight against poor sanitation management in most parts of the country, adding that the recent waste management policies and initiatives were clear indications of its relentless fight against the menace.
