Honourable Veronica Alele Herming, the District Chief Executive for Bole District in the Savannah Region has today handed over a fully furnished Community based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound for the people of Bale electoral area in the District.
The health facility is to serve the people of Bale and its nearby communities like Kpenaayiri, Goli, Timburyiri, Horiyiri, Dibuoyiri and Dipaateyiri.
The building of the facility started in 2016 by the erstwhile NDC administration but the contract was terminated and handed over to a different contractor in early 2020 and hence completed today by the NPP government under my auspices, the DCE indicated.
In a short ceremony attended by staff of the Assembly, the District Health Directorate as well as Community leaders and people of Bale, Hon. Veronica admonished the people to own the facility and make good use of it.
She said, the people of Bale have always craved for a health facility so they should ensure that they make good use of the facility.
She appealed to the people of Bale to help maintain the facility for the benefit of future generations.
She said the Assembly is committed to ensuring that development gets to the grassroot level hence there is the need for the people to help the Assembly by protecting and preserving the facility especially looking at the investments that have gone into it.
Hon. Veronica called on residents of Bale to patronage the services of the Community based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound.
she therefore pleaded with the people of Bale to continue supporting the NPP government to develop the Bole district.
Mr. Nuurideen Yakubu, who represented the Bole District Health Director thanked the Assembly for completing the project and implored the community members to help in maintaining the facility to meet its desired results.
“We are grateful to the Bole District Assembly and the DCE for putting up this beautiful edifice in my electoral area”, the Assembly Member for the area Hon. Sorpootey Guorbintey Eric added.
