Dr Dominic Eduah assured of an evenly spread of such interventions across the country.
“We’ve nationalised the projects that we are doing. The projects cut across…its in every district as we speak. We are ensuring that we attend to the various request that comes to out table. We are not restricting it to the Western Region”, he clarified.
Head of Environment and Social Amenities with GNPC Foundation, Ms. Patience Lartey observed that the progress of work though has been met with some challenges, they are within schedule.
She explained that the challenges were mainly technical and logistical in nature with contractors, and some others regarding land, with title holders. Albeit, Mrs Lartey said that such matters have been resolved and is convinced of having these projects completed soon.
She added that “we will repeat the same projects…we will do water- boreholes for deprived communities, the school blocks, the sanitary facilities,..because they are the main focus of the Environment and Social Amenities Unit. That is our focus because the deprivation is high, not just in the Western Region…it cuts across”
