The Member of Parliament for Tema East, Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus Glover, has started a house to house patrol in the Constituency to ensure that President Akufo-Addo’s directive for water to be provided freely to all Ghanaians is enforced.

With a small entourage of educators and law enforcement personnel, the MP stormed community after community and stopped over at homes and commercial water supply joints to drum home the Presidential order.

Mr Titus Glover, also handled questions from constituents who did not understand aspects of the presidential directive and educated them appropriately.

Among persons that the MP educated were landlords, water tanker service providers and non-mobile commercial water sales people.

Everywhere he stopped over he made it clear that per Government’s instruction, water was to be freely provided to people for the next three months.

“From this month (April) to June, Government has purposed for every single Ghanaian to have free water and because of this, water bills within this period will not be charged to citizens,” the MP would say at every stop.

He then went ahead to warn that if the order was disobeyed, those who flouted it would be arrested and prosecuted.
“We are doing this so that all of us can have enough water to fight away the deadly coronavirus. Anybody who flouts the order will be a threat to public health and safety,” the Tema East MP warned.

Meanwhile, the MP also shared food and veronica buckets across his Constituency, all aimed at defeating the deadly virus.

The buckets targeted market women and other operators who deal in commercial goods or service provision, while the food targeted at the vulnerable in society, such as the elderly, head porters and mentally challenged persons on the streets.

The MP explained that the initiative was in line with a national initiative that President Akufo-Addo started.
“Our President is like a wartime leader; in keeping with his promise to give resourceful leadership, he is feeding the vulnerable and providing all the necessary relief items to cushion all of us in these extra-ordinary times.

Once the President has moved, it is a natural signal to all of us his appointees to take initiatives as well and that is what I am doing with these distributions,” the MP said while handing out some of the relief items.

The MP attracted the appreciation of beneficiaries. Asafoi-Atse Nii Dzata, a water tap operator said he was impressed with the MP’s quick action.

”As soon as President Akufo Addo gave the directives, our hardworking MP came around distributing food from house-to-house especially the aged and he ensured that President Akufo Addo’s order on free water for Ghanaians including; preventive measures of coronavirus was enforced, I and many other tap water operators of Tema new town have decided to obey because we hold the President and our MP in high esteem, the MP enjoys massive support and if we don’t comply, we’ll create enmity for ourselves.’ Asafoi-atse Nii Dzata said.
