Over 5,000 residents of Biskan rely on a single borehole for potable water
Residents of Biskan in Chaggu Electoral Area in the Wa East District say over 5,000 residents in the community rely on a single borehole for potable water.
They said depending on the single borehole affects their productive hours, especially during the dry season.
In an interview with Info Radio at the community, Mr. Abdul Rahaman Adams, a resident, said their wives spend much time at the borehole in search of potable water instead of being on the farm.
He indicated that they have laid the complaints to district authorities but they did not come to their aid.
Madam Ignusah Barikisu, another resident, lamented that women sometimes fight at the borehole before they could get water to fetch.
The residents said the government has neglected them because they do not have a health facility in the community, the roads are bad, and farming activities are not going on well, among others.
Mr. Seidu Abdullai said pregnant women have to walk long distances to access primary healthcare at Chaggu.
They appealed to the government to come to their aid.
