Mr Anthony Yenyi Domobala, a youth leader in the Gbeneyiri Electoral Area, has expressed worry over the lack of telecommunications networks signals in the community which is affecting the social and economic lives of residents.
Speaking in an interview with Yagbon Radio, on the Banasco soccer fiesta slated on Friday September 25, at Gbeneyiri, in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District, Mr Anthony said for one to get connected to any of the telecommunications networks, residents in the area have to hang their phones at a particular spot to be connected or one has to walk several meters towards the Sanyari road to be connected to a network signal.
He said the issue is very worrying because workers such as nurses and teachers posted to the area finds it difficult in migrating to the place due to this challenge.
“Hon. Seidu Nuhu Banasco is organizing a soccer fiesta together with other games at Gbeneyiri and its catchment areas on September 25, and as a youth leader our major plea to the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba constituency parliamentary candidate on the ticket of the NPP for elections 2020 will be the provision of a telecommunications network,” Mr Anthony noted.
Mr. Anthony added that the community appreciates the efforts of Banasco by transporting electricity poles to the community in a bid of supplying them with electricity.
This is the first of its kind over the past years as we have followed political leaders in the constituency which has not yielded any positive result as far as connecting us to the National Grid is concerned, Anthony indicated.
However, the coming of Banasco on the ticket of the NPP vying for the Member of Parliament slot in the constituency marks a new beginning as he describes him as a young with vision for the youth and the constituency at large hence the need to vote for Banasco massively come December 7, Mr Anthony said.
Mr Anthony said Doobodarkoraa in the area also lacked potable water to serve the residents.
He said the road leading to the town was in a deplorable state, thereby, making life unbearable for the people especially the market women but added that Banasco is working on the road.
Gbeneyiri is a farming community in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District with a population of about 1000 people.
