President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has ended his one-day tour in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
He was in Bolgatanga and Navrongo.
In a Facebook post, he said he commissioned the 37.6 million euro Upper East Water Supply Project.
The project, he indicated, is providing the people of Bolgatanga, Navrongo, Paga and its environs with twenty thousand, five hundred (20,500) cubic metres of water per day, which is approximately four and a half million gallons (4.5 million) of water per day, a three-fold increase from the 1.5 million gallons a day originally available to the Region.
Apart from Bolgatanga, Navrongo and Paga, he noted that communities such as Zuarungu, Zarre, Sumbrungu, Kalbeo, Gambibigo, Winkogo, Bongo, Yorogo, Pungu and Akomkongu are also set to benefit from the project.
Three hundred and forty-seven thousand, four hundred and forty-six people, in total, will be served with safe, potable water according to President Akufo-Addo.
Before leaving the region, he inspected ongoing work on the Bolgatanga-Bawku-Polimakom Road, and work on the Agenda 111 Project site in the Bolgatanga East District.
