Over 21 communities and health facilities in the Upper Manya Krobo District in the Eastern Region have been provided with mechanised boreholes to improve access to potable water.

In addition to the boreholes, the district also benefited from a water supply system that has improved access to water for people from $1 million per district fund.

This was disclosed by the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Upper Manya Krobo, Felix Nartey Odjao, at a press briefing and launch of the December 17 referendum campaign at Asesewa.

He said plans were advanced to provide all the communities in the district with a potable water facility from the District Development Fund (DDF) especially the communities which depend on the lake for drinking water.

On the referendum, he urged everyone to come out in their numbers to vote massively for the amendment of the local government law to make it possible for MMDCEs to be elected in 2021.

He called on all stakeholders to use their various mediums and platforms to campaign for people to go out and vote on December 17.
