Bui, (B/A), Aug.
17, GNA – The Bui Power Authority (BPA), managers of the Bui Dam, on Tuesday
presented items valued at GH₵ 14,910.00 to the Community Health-based Planning
Services (CHPS) Compound at the Bui resettlement Community in Banda District.

It comprises 20,000
litre capacity poly tank, pumps and accessories, automatic voltage regulator
and copper cables.

Mr Jonathan
Odonkor, the Director of Operations of the BPA told the Ghana News Agency at
Bui in the Brong-Ahafo Region that the items are to facilitate the completion
of a mechanised borehole to pump water to the compound and parts of the
community.

Mr Odonkor said the
Authority is aware of the challenge of lack of continuous flow of water to the
compound hence the need for the water project.

He assured
residents that the Authority would ensure that communal facilities like
boreholes, clinic and schools would be provided to enhance their living
conditions.

Mr Jacob Munukpah,
the District Director of Health said the water system in the entire
resettlement community is a major challenge and appealed to the BPA to construct
additional boreholes at the camp.

He thanked the BPA
for the support, and asked the residents to assist in the installation of the
items for regular water supply to the compound.

Mr Jacob Boateng,
the District Chief Executive, stated that the Bui dam is a national asset, and
entreated every Ghanaian to help in protecting it.

He expressed regret
that several attempts made to re-locate the Dokokyina residents from around the
dam remained unsuccessful, and appealed to opinion leaders in the community to
intervene.
