The Wa West Constituency Branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called for immediate completion of all government projects in Wa West Constituency.
A statement signed by the Wa West Constituency Communication Officer for the NDC, Mr Stephen Aseon and copied to Mak News, on Monday also urged the government to execute its plans of converting the Vieri Agricultural bungalows into an Agric College.
The projects includes the Dorimon Community Day Senior High School, the Vieri Health Centre and the “four major roads” earmarked to be constructed in the district which was announced by the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia during his 2019 regional Ramadan tour to the Upper West Region.
noted that describing the Poyentanga-Jenebob-Buli, Tanina-Polee, Nako-Polee, and Poyentnga-Bulingin- Buli roads by the Vice President as major roads was a deliberate attempt to “divert from the tarring of the Ga-Wechiau-Dorimon-Wa road and Wa-Vieri-Tanvaare road”.
“We are scandalised and still shocked to the bone marrow that the launching of RFJ and all its imported resources outside the region could end without a single sentence or paragraph in either the speech of the agric minister or the president indicating an issue of the establishment of an agricultural college in the Upper West Region as earlier intimated by the former Regional Minister”, it read.
It could be recalled that Alhaji Alhassan Sulemana, the former Upper West Regional Minister, announced at a festival at Vieri in the Wa West District in January 2019 that the government had planned to establish an agric college at Vieri and to launch the Rearing for Food and Jobs (RFJ) programme.
However, the government had since remained silence about the agric college while the RFJ had been launched.
The statement added that government’s delay in implementing the One-Village-One-Dam, One-District-One-Factory, One-District-One-Warehouse among others was a great disservice to the people in the district.
On security, the statement called on government to take proactive measures to curb the influx of Fulani herdsmen in the district as some of them engaged in social vices such as armed robbery.
“We demand that the DCE unravel the secrecy shrouding the contractor and contract sum of the controversial police check point at Varempere and why the rehabilitation of 3-unit police Bungalow at Vieri which was awarded to contract last year and was scheduled to be completed within one year has since not commenced”, it added.
The statement also touched on the need for government to take sanitation issues in the district very seriously, emphasising the need to relocate or improve the dump site located at Siriyiri which posed health threat to the people in the community.
