The Minister of Special Development Initiatives, Hon. Hawa Koomson has assured the people of Brong Ahafo region that, more projects are coming to their region as part of the implementation of the $1 million per constituency program.

The Minister disclosed this when she paid a working visit to some selected constituencies in the region to inspect the progress of work on the ongoing constructions of community-based water systems and toilets facilities in some rural and deprived communities within the constituencies.


At Berekum East Constituency, the Minister took time to pay a courtesy call on the Akyempimhene of Berekum Traditional Council and Chief of Jinijini Traditional area, Nana Baafour Tutu Asare II, to inform and solicit for his support in future projects.

The Constituency is benefiting from three (3) 10-Seater Water Closet Institutional toilets with Mechanised boreholes at Mpatapo, Biadan and Mpatasie communities and three (3) Solar powered limited mechanized boreholes with solar panels at Jinijini Bokruwa High tension, Jinijini Pentecost and Jinijini Suntreso Communities at the Berekum West Constituency.


The District Chief Imam of Jaman North, Alhaji Seidu Adam, in receiving the Minister, commended her for ensuring that his community, a predominantly Muslim community, are grateful for such intervention.

He mentioned that, these facilities couldn't have come at an opportune time since the only toilet facility receiving his community was closed down 10 years ago and his people had to resort to easing themselves at the bush.

The Minister on her part assured the Imam that, more of such basic but very important infrastructure aimed at alleviating the difficulties people go through to access them 

“Government acknowledges that, the citizenry especially those at the rural and deprived communities as yours, have difficulties in accessing some basic but very important infrastructure needs. That acknowledgment partly formed the basis of President Akufo Addo's creation of my Ministry to pay special attention to these needs."

She added "these interventions form government's specific strategy to meet Sustainable Development Goals 6 (SDG 6) which targets at providing clean water and sanitation to all irrespective of location."

Jaman North Constituency is also benefiting from similar facilities at Asantekrom, Febi, Adinkrakrom, Jimini - Sampa, Seketia, and Suma - Ahenkro.

The government through the Ministry of Special Development Initiatives is also providing similar facilities at all the 29 constituencies in the Brong Ahafo Region.

In addition, the region is also benefiting from the construction of six (6) 1,000 metric tonnes prefabricated grains warehouses at Wenchi, Atebubu, Busunya, Techiman and Sunyani as part of One District One Warehouse (1D1W) initiative
