Assembly member worried about govt’s continued disappointment
He expressed disappointment in the government on the absence of electricity in the Nwawasua Electoral Area.
The Assembly Member for Nwawasua Electoral Area, Bismark Tsikata has noted with regret that there are many communities in his area without access to the National grid.
The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo in his acceptance speech after swearing-in for his second term said he would make sure the remaining 15% of Ghana’s population not on the national grid would get access to electricity.
Mr Tsikata stated that previous governments made several promises over the years but failed to honour them. He hoped that the Akufo Addo government would fulfil its promise during its second term in office.
"There many communities without electricity in the Sunyani Municipal," Bismark Tsikata said in an interview with Soiree News Nana Ama Asiedu.
"They promised to get us on the grid and further planted the high tension poles but nothing has been done.
"The electricity poles were introduced in 2015 but has no cables installed as people still live in darkness. They keep promising us every four years and we are hoping this time, Nana Akufo Addo fulfils his promises.
"Its really affecting our living and we hope this time, our welfare will be deemed."
