Yendi (N/R), Nov.
03, GNA – Alhaji Baba Gazali, the Assembly Man for Zohe-West Electoral Area, in
the Yendi Municipality has commissioned a 20-seater toilet facility in the Zohe

The newly
constructed toilet valued at about GH¢40,000.00 replaces a dilapidated one that
was no longer useful, compelling both young and old to openly defecate
indiscriminately in the community.

Alhaji Gazali said
the old toilet facility at a point became inconvenient for use and compelled
the residents to engage in open defecation, indicating that the stench from the
toilet was unhealthy for the community members.

He stated that there
were plans to drill and mechanise a number of bore-holes in addition to the
existing ones and to improve on an educational fund in the area which had
already supported 18 needy children in the community.

Alhaji Farouk Aliu
Mahama, a philanthropist, supported the community with 50 bags of cement and 20
lamps of street lights to aid in the construction of another toilet facility
and lighting at the request of members of the Zohe community and a sum of GH¢5000
to support girl-child education in the area.

Alhaji Yussif
Abubakari, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) commended the Assembly Man for
helping to address the needs of his people.

He urged members of
the community to play individual roles in keeping the facility clean at all
times to attract more of such projects from donors.
