She said these included water projects in Keta, Damongo, Tamale Water, Sekondi, Wenchi, Yendi and Sunyani.
“That is why I am proud to say that the government is on track to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 for water and sanitation,” she said.
The Sanitation and Water Resources interacted with the press during a working visit to the Keta Water Supply System in Keta in the Volta Region on Wednesday, September 8, 2021.

According to her, the Keta water project was taken to Cabinet by the Ministry and then Parliament gave its approval which finally saw President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo also gave his consent.
“Value for money was done. So everything is under scrutiny and we pray that the 30 months given for the execution of the project would be adhered to so that they will be no delays,” she intimated..
