The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Bawku West, Ayamba Victoria has been working to transform the District.
Barely two years in office, the DCE said she had realised the District Education Office had been left in a disgusting state and that could have been adversely impacting academic performance in the area and so she renovated it.
According to her, she went on to construct a six-unit classroom block at Kukruzor, Timone and Boya communities.
In terms of sanitation facilities for schools, Madam Victoria said the Assembly had earmarked KVIP toilets and urinary facilities for Bulenga, Gozongo and Adonsi.
She said the Assembly in collaboration with the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area was on course rejuvenating the District Library to add to efforts in improving education in the area.
HEALTH AND SANITATION
Madam Victoria said construction of a maternity ward with over 30 bed capacity at the District Hospital was on ongoing.
A walk through the existing maternity ward at the hospital by a Bridge News Reporter revealed over crowdedness and inadequate ventilation.
To that effect, the DCE expressed hope that when completed the new facility would tremendously improve health delivery in the area; she also said construction of another maternity ward was on going at Binamba in the District.
SANITATION AND WATER
According to Madam Victoria, under the special initiative programme, the District had benefitted from six-unit 10 KVIP toilets with mechanised solar boreholes. Some of the beneficiary areas included; the District hospital, the chief’s palace, the central market, Zongo, Sapeliga and Binamba suburbs and communities.
Other communities and areas such as the custom-barrier area, Kukori, Widnaaba, Binamba Central market and Tanga have received a mechanised solar borehole each and one at Sapeliga community was yet to be completed.
The DCE said the Assembly had rented and fueled a tipper-truck to gravel some roads using its Internal Generated Fund. (IGF)
Madam Victoria said a committee was sent to some 10 sites for consideration for construction of dams to ensure all year round food production in the District.
