JOHN KUMAH COMMISSIONS TOILETS, BOREHOLES AND WASHROOMS FOR SIX COMMUNITIES IN EJISU.
The Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Ampontuah Kumah last Friday commissioned ultra modern toilet facilities, boreholes and wash rooms for six communities in his constituency.
The communties include, Boankra, Besease, Essienimpong, Donyina, Bonwire and Akokoamong.
The gesture forms part of the MP’s pledge to improve sanitation in the communities and also provide places of convenience for constituents.
Speaking at separate ceremonies at the six communities, Dr Kumah expressed delight at the opportunity to bring relief to people in the areas visited.
Dr Kumah in an interview with the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper noted his desire to make Ejisu constituency a properly developed community.
This, he said would happen when such important health and sanitation amenities are made available to residents.
The MP, who is also a Deputy Minister for Finance disclosed that having learnt of the situations in the 6 communities as well as others in other parts of Ejisu he decided to carry out the construction of places of convenience, wash rooms and borehole water facilities for the people.
“Having learnt of the situation in my constituency my plan was to construct toilet facilities, wash rooms and borehole water facilities in every area so as to bring relief to people in the communities where access to these is difficult”, Dr Kumah stated.
Faustina Abrafi, a 50 year old widow told this reporter the construction of the facilities at Donyina was remarkable.
She recalled some occasions where she had had to go and plead with a neighbour to answer nature’s call at dawn.
Kwame Osei, a middle aged farmer at Besease said the town was grateful to the Deputy Minister and MP for showing commitment to their welfare.
He said many in the community would now have the opportunity to attend to nature’s call, use the washrooms and have access to water anytime unlike previously where this was an inconvenience.
