Even before the electorate of the Nandom Constituency vote for him to represent them in Ghana’s parliament, Dr. Richard Kuuire of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has so far sank 32 new boreholes in 23 different communities.
He has also repaired 4 other existing boreholes that broke down in 3 different communities in the Nandom Constituency.
Dr. Kuuire who spoke to Savannahnews shortly after handing over the projects at their different locations in Nandom, said the initiative was in fulfilment of promises he made to constituents prior to being elected the parliamentary aspirant for the Nandom Constituency.
“Considering the number of hours our mothers, sisters and particularly school children spend in searching for water on daily basis, I decided to end the problem of insufficient water even before I am voted to represent my people in parliament come December 7.
“Some other areas earmarked for provision of boreholes could not be reached because of flooding. They will be assisted later. I have in collaboration with the District Assembly secured another set of boreholes....over 10...which will also be constructed by September”, he promised.
Additionally, the former Director-General of the Ghana Prisons Service also announced the extension of electricity to 7 different communities. They include Tom, Zimuopare, Nabugangn, Naapaal, Ko-vaarpuo, Nandomle and Betaglu.
“In addition to electricity and water, I am also building basic schools in certain communities where they lack such amenities. My plan for the education sector is quite strategic and the sector will get the needed boost.
“More textbooks for effective teaching and learning were received through my efforts. The District Education Directorate is in touch and we are exploring more opportunities to help boost education in Nandom. An Education Fund for the needy but brilliant students particularly the girl child is envisaged”, Dr. Kuuire revealed.
Dr. Kuuire further noted that he was currently lobbying the Ministry of Roads and Highways to improve upon the road network in the Nandom area especially the Lawra-Nandom-Hamile road.
He thanked citizens, both home and abroad, who were contributing in diverse ways to enable him execute the projects. “I must acknowledge that, I wouldn't have been able to get these projects to my constituents without the support of well-meaning Nandome in Ghana and the diaspora and I thank them so much for their continuous support towards the development of our homeland Nandom”.
He urged all his supporters to refrain from acts of violence. “I want to let you all know that I am still very much committed to conducting my campaign in the most peaceful and civil manner”, he maintained.
Meanwhile, Dr. Richard Kuuire appealed to the electorate to vote massively for him and President John Dramani Mahama on December 7 to enable him and the next NDC government bring more development projects to them.
