Residents of Sombo Electoral Area in the Wa municipality have received a sigh of relief following the construction of 4km feeder road in the community.
In an interview with Radio Progress news, the Assembly Member of the area Hon Abubakari Seidu after a visit to the community, he said the road linking the fire service junction to St Cecilia Primary and JHS has been his priority before he was elected as an assembly member for the community. He said upon assumption into office he wrote officially to the Wa Municipal Assembly, the Member of Parliament and the Parliamentary Candidate for the NPP for Wa Central appealing to them to construct the road. This the Assembly Member said prompted the Wa Central Parliamentary Candidate for the NPP Hajia Humu Awudu to come to the aid of the community with her own resources.
Hon Abubakari Seidu noted that residents have been battling over the years to get the road constructed to ease the movement of motorists and school children in the community.
Mr Seidu noted that he took bold steps with the assistance from landlords and elders to get some houses demolished to pave way for the community to have access roads as some of the affected victims have been resisting to get their houses demolished.
He urged the Member of Parliament Dr Rashid Hassan Pelpuo, the Wa Municipal Assembly and the NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Wa Central Hajia Humu Awudu to assist the community to be connected to the national grid and provide boreholes to ease the pressure women in the community go through in search of water for domestic purposes.
Some of the residents who spoke to Radio Progress news commended Hajia Humu Awudu for her good works and generosity towards the people of Wa municipality. They appealed to her, the Wa Municipal Assembly and the Member of Parliament to assist the community as they are confronted with inadequate boreholes and hook the some areas of the community to the national grid.
