Zebilla (U/E), Sept. 20, GNA – Mrs 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.

Mrs 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.

Mrs Ayamba said 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.

She said 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.
