Commissioning Of Kpong Water Project: Don't Shower Praises On Prez Mahama

Legal practitioner, Egbert Faibille has said that too much praise should not be showered on the president for the commissioning of the Kpong water project. Mr Faibille said it was the duty of every government to provide adequate water for its citizens, so the president should not be hailed as though it was something new he had done. “It is shameful that over 50 years, a republic of such stature when the president of government does a project like that, it wants to be praised. These are basic necessities of life and you go and do this and you want us to stand on a rooftop and shout. It is a shame.” He said the previous situation was an indictment on all governments both past and present. Mr Faibille was co-presenting the News Review segment with Deputy Transport Minister Joyce Bawa-Mongtari and the New Patriotic Party’s Member of Parliament for the Dome Kwabenya Constituency Adwoa Safo on Joy FMs Super Morning Show on Wednesday, December 24, 2014. The Deputy Transport Minister said the government acknowledges that there are challenges with the supply of water in the country, but said the commissioning of the Kpong water project was a step in the right direction. She indicated that government would in the coming year will embark on a desalination project which will add a further 20 million gallons of water to what is needed in the country.
