Youth of Charile in the Wa West Constituency disappointed in government and outgoing MP
The youth and people of Charile community in the Wa West District of the Upper West Region say they are disappointed in government and the outgoing Member of Parliament for allegedly denying them access to electricity.
The residents who spoke to Info Radio on the sidelines of the Charile Youth Association Annual Home-coming ceremony said, the immediate-past Member of Parliament for the Wa West Constituency, Joseph Yieleh Chireh has promised them on countless occasions but has never lived up to his promise.
They expressed worry over the development saying that Charile is the only community within the enclave that do not have access to electricity.
Mr. Sobung Batewla Kunchong, a resident of the community could not understand why they still do not have access to electricity even after voting for several decades.
He further questioned if the electricity was going to be “connected from the heavens.”
Mr. Sobung has appealed to the government to expedite action in connecting the community to the national grid.
He further stressed that even if the electricity was in the heavens, the government should do well to bring it down to their access.
Another resident of the community, Madam Kaguora Boyene also said that they are not benefiting anything from the government of Ghana, saying they do not feel like citizens of the country.
She lamented over the lack of electricity in the community. She appealed to duty bearers and the government to consider their voting rights and provide them with the basic social amenities.
The youth and people have therefore appealed to the newly sworn-in Member of Parliament, Hon Peter Lanchene Tuobu (Rtd), the government and benevolent organizations to come to their aid.
