Following pleas from rural women of Fachoboi community concerning their difficulty in accessing potable drinking water, the Deputy Upper West regional minister, Hon. Issahaku Amidu Chinnia has, on February 13, 2020, responded by commissioning a new borehole which was constructed through efforts made by him and a friend.
“sometime back my party chairman and some executives here saw me and pleaded that if I could get them a borehole because their wives are suffering, so after listening to them I also assured them that I would do my best and help”.
Hon. Issahaku Amidu Chinnia added that after an engagement with the party chairman and some executives of the area, he consulted a friend, and they both polled resources together to get the community a borehole.
“After the plea, I did some consultations with a friend of mine and we put our efforts together to raise some money to construct the borehole”, he said.
He also assured them of his readiness to help in addressing the numerous challenges confronting the community should he be able.
Elders and women of Fachoboi community whose hearts were gladdened expressed their excitement about the development and profusely thanked the Deputy regional minister for the gesture done them.
The community members have however seized the opportunity to complain that they normally climb trees and hilly areas just to access communication network services, and have therefore urged the minister to, once again, help them to resolve the situation in the community.
