The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tain Constituency (MP) in the Bono Region, Sulemana Adama, has appealed to non-governmental organisations, philanthropists and development partners to provide his constituents with accelerated socioeconomic development to improve livelihoods.
He identified potable drinking water, bad road networks and poor drinking water as teething challenges and problems in the area and called on the government to equally distribute the national cake to better the lives of the people.
Describing access to water as a basic necessity of human existence, Mr Adama alleged that “the government has been unfair to the chiefs and people of Tain by denying them potable drinking water and access roads which were impeding the progress, growth and development of the Constituency.
“Though educational and health facilities, as well as security, has improved, bad road networks, lack of potable and access to water in the area remains another key socioeconomic developmental challenge and problems that need urgent attention so as not to impoverish the people.
“During my visits to local communities in the constituency, the people mentioned lack of potable drinking water, access to water and deplorable road networks as their immediate needs, which the government must provide to them as part of our share of the national cake which must be equitably distributed,” Mr Adama decried.
The MP explained that quality education and health remained his priority, assuring that he would ensure a decent school and healthy environment were provided to meet the needs of the constituents to alley their fears of not meeting their hopes and aspirations.
Mr Adama stated that the privilege provided to him as an MP has exposed him to a lot of the numerous development challenges and other problems in the constituency and was working strenuously to ensure that the constituents also benefited from the national cake to enhance their socioeconomic livelihoods.
He maintained that the Tain Constituency deserved better and promised to continue identifying and helping to tackle the diverse development challenges and problems by lobbying for development support and assistance from the government, nongovernmental organisations, philanthropists and development partners. -GNA
