Mr. Micheal Mensah speaking to Ghanadistricts.com on the plight of residents disclosed that the Assembly was aware of the challenges confronting residents especially with accessing potable water and has already instituted a number of measures to address the problem.

According to him, improvement in potable water delivery is not only limited to Amuzukope but other communities equally in need of such intervention and assured that their rather sad situation will soon be a thing of the past.
He further indicated that though the assembly constructed two boreholes for the community, the nature of the land did not give off the expected results.
The MCE announced that a proposal has been sent to the Ministry of Water and Sanitation, of which the assembly has been promised of a mechanized water system soon.
This, not withstanding, Mr. Mensah added that the assembly will use its District Development Fund (DDF) to support the Ministry’s effort and also extend pipe borne water to the other deprived communities.
He added that an urgent steps to remedy the situation is taking place to alleviate the suffering of the community.
