Ghana Gas commissions nine mechanized boreholes in Kpandai


Ghana National Gas Company has commissioned nine mechanized boreholes in 11 communities in the Kpandai district in the Northern Region of Ghana.

The projects, aimed at solving community water problems, were presented at a colourful commissioning on the campus of the College of Community Health Nursing in Nkanchina.

The College of Community Health Nursing trains highly skilled and professional nurses who are ready to fill gaps in the healthcare delivery system within Kpandai and the country at large.

The trainees received the mechanized boreholes to solve their burden of travelling distances to fetch water.

The various communities in Kpandai to benefit from the mechanized boreholes include Nkanchina Nursing College, Mbowura, Kabeso, Kachinke, Kakpeni, Jamboai, Jirandogo, Loloto and Lonto.

A candidate in the New Patriotic Party’s parliamentary primary in the Kpandai constituency, Richard Nyamah, commended the gas company for providing water to nine communities in the Kpandai district.

He advised the College of Community Health Nursing students to spend most of their time in studies since they now have water on campus, unlike previous days when they had to travel to town to fetch from the Oti River.

“I want to appeal to you all after we’re done commissioning, take responsibility for it and make sure that you maintain it so that those after you will also take good care of it,” he said.

The Principal of the College of Community Health Nursing, Abdul Karim A. Hussein, appealed to corporate bodies to come to their aid since the school only runs one certificate programme.

He added that they have clearance to start a new diploma programme.

At the Mbowura community, the people could not stop but praised Ghana Gas and Richard Nyamah for honouring their promise to the various communities in the Kpandai district.

Other dignitaries at the event were the Chief of Nkanchina, Nana Okumankwi I, queen mothers, traditional leaders, party members, MCEs and the townsfolk.
