President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has cut sod for the rehabilitation and expansion of the Keta water project located at Agordomi in the South Tongu district of the Volta region at a ceremony that formed part of the President’s one day tour of the region.
The 85m Euros project which is expected to be completed in a duration of 3years would provide clean drinking water communities the South Tongu and Anlo Districts including the Keta Municipality.
In March this year, the Parliament of Ghana approved a total of €97.184 million credit facility agreement between the Government of Ghana and the Deutsche Bank, supported by the Italian Export Credit Agency to finance the expansion and rehabilitation of the Keta Water supply system.
The project is expected to bring to an end, a decade’s long water problem facing many communities along the Keta Lagoon including Sogakope, Atiavi, Dabala, Anloga, Anyako, Tegbi, Woe and Keta among many others.
The project which has been awarded to an Israeli company, Lesico Infrastructures S. R. L is expected to produce portable water to the tune of 35,000 cubic meters per day.
The President while in the region used the opportunity to speak on the brouhaha that greeted the deployment of the military into the Volta region during the just ended Voter registration exercise.
