ABURA: 19 communities hooked onto national electricity grid



In a bid to get all deprived communities in the District connected to the national grid, the Abura Asebu Kwamankese District Assembly is set to commission about nineteen newly completed electrification projects in the area.

Revealing this in an interview with Ghanadistricts.com, the District Chief Executive Mr. William Ata-Mends however indicated that though only nineteen out of the twenty-one projects which were awarded on contract had been completed, he said the contractors were working assiduously to get the remaining two communities onto the national grid.

According to him, low tension pole had already been mounted in those two communities with only few works left to be done.

He said the Government of Ghana (GoG) funded project forms part the ruling party’s “Better Ghana” agenda policy which seeks to improve the living conditions in every part of the country.

The DCE however boasted that about 98 percent of the district’s rural electrification extension had so far been achieved, adding that his outfit has done comparably well on rural electrification though other sectors of concern had also been tackled.
