The District Chief Executive for Lawra in the Upper West Region, Abu Sampson, has pledged the Assembly’s commitment to drill boreholes in about 72 communities of the district.

He indicated that the ongoing project, which is powered by the government, is part of measures to boost the water system in the whole Region and particularly the Lawra district.

This was revealed by the DCE in the wake of the claim made by the Assembly member for Lawra Nayiri, Gertrude Karbo that some of the environs of the area have a problem accessing potable water.

Mr Abu Sampson stressed that by the end of the year all these communities that have major challenge in getting potable water for use would be provided with boreholes to improve on the social lives of inhabitants of the area.

He further pointed out that under the government’s Self Help Electrification Programme (SHEP), a total of 400 communities in the Region were being connected to the national grid, adding that 30 communities from the Lawra district are also benefiting from this project.
