The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tain Constituency (MP) in the Bono region, Sulemana Adama, has started a campaign to get support from non-governmental organisations, philanthropists and international development partners to provide his constituents with safe drinking water.

He identified bad road networks and poor drinking water as teething challenges in the area, and called on the government to equally distribute the national cake to better the lives of the people.

According to Mr. Sulemana, the current government has not been fair to the chiefs and people of Tain when it comes to the provision of potable water.

In an interview at the Bono regional town of Nsawkaw, the MP said although security, education and health infrastructure has improved, bad roads remained key development setback in the Tain constituency.
