President Inaugurates Water System For Five Communities In Central Gonja

President Nana Akufo-Addo, on Monday, inaugurated the Yapei Water System to extend potable water to 18,149 residents in five communities in the Central Gonja District of the Savannah Region.

The six-million-cedi plus facility, undertaken by the Community Water and Sanitation Agency as part of the Additional Financing – Sustainable Rural Water and Sanitation Project, comes with four hybrid pumps, 28 stand pipes, a treatment plant, and a solar farm.

The facility is thus providing relief for the residents of Yapei, Yipala, Fufulso, Nyangwuripe and Ntereso, who have hitherto had to walk long distances in search of water, especially during the dry season.

President Akufo-Addo, in an address at Yapei to inaugurate the facility, said similar projects had been executed in 10 regions across the country.

He gave the assurance that the Government would continue to supply water to the people and advised the beneficiaries to take good care of the facility.

He assured the Chief of Yapei that his request for the creation of a district, establishment of a senior high school and fire station at Yapei would be honoured.

President Nana Akufo-Addo expressed his revulsion at the killing of Madam Akua Denteh, an old woman at Kafaba, in the East Gonja Municipality of the Savannah Region saying, it should not happen again.

In a video, that has gone viral, the woman was accused of witchcraft by a traditional priestess and, subsequently, lynched.

He called for quick action on the part of the Police Administration to ensure justice for the woman.

Yapeiwura (Chief of Yapei) Alhassan Suale, expressed gratitude to the Government for fulfilling its campaign promise to extend potable water to the area.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
