Akufo-Addo opens the pipe for the first time

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday, 30 June 2020, cut a ribbon to open the Anomansa Cluster Water System in the Mfantseman constituency, and the Papaase Cluster Water System in the Awutu Senya West constituency to symbolise the opening of 146 completed rural water systems in the Central Region.

The construction of each of the 146 water systems commenced in 2017, with a $47.5-million credit facility from the World Bank.  

The beneficiary municipal and district assemblies are Awutu Senya West, Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam, Assin South, Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa, Gomoa West, Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese, Mfantseman and Agona West.
