The Wa East Assembly has procured some electricity material to connect rural communities to National Grid in fulfillment of the people’s long-awaited dream of also enjoying the national grid.
Dupari, Chassia, Duccie, Motigu and Sogla are among the very remote communities in the Wa East District that have been waiting to be hooked to the national grid for several years now.
Announcing the long awaited news, Hon Dr Ewurah Suleman Kandia Mahama, the Wa East District Chief Executive noted that the contract was awarded by the current government but could not be executed due to the the world wide known disease , Covid 19.
He noted that realizing how badly the people needed the electricity, the present government found the money for the contractor to execute the project.
“As we hand over the materials and contractor to you today for works to begin, I want to caution that just as we are happy to enjoy the benefits, we should also be wary of the danger involved and adopt best practices to protect lives and property”, he advised.
the DCE said the Assembly will ensure the completion of this project to provide light for brightening their rooms and also serve as opportunity to do business and better their lots.
The DCE mentioned that, the communities still lacked a number of developmental interventions including a communication network to make life comfortable for them, and appealed to them to vote to retain the government in power for it to address the remaining developmental needs of the community.
According to him, Wa East received their share of development only when NPP was in power, citing the construction of the Wa-Bulenga road and Kulun and Ambalaara bridges among others.
The chiefs and people of the community thanked the DCE for the intervention.
