Alhaji Mohammed Habib Tijani, Yendi District Chief Executive, commended the Australian High Commission for its assistance in the provision of water to the people in Guntingli and said it would help lessen the burden on women and reduce the time wasted in search of water and promote good health.
He said the provision of potable water would further promote girl-child education since girls would no longer spend too much of their time looking for water to the detriment of going to school punctually.
Alhaji Tijani announced that the District Assembly would soon construct a 12-seater Aqua privy place of convenience for the Guntingli area and appealed to other stakeholders in the water and sanitation sector to support the promotion of household places of convenience.
Earlier in the day, Mr Richardson was led by Alhaji Tijani to pay homage to the regent of Yendi, Kampakuya-Na Abdulai Yakubu.
Na Yakubu commended the Australian High Commission on its intervention to provide water for the people in the area and appealed for similar support in the areas of education and health.
He assured the High Commissioner that he would cooperate with other stakeholders to bring lasting peace to Dagbon.
