The Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has donated modern life jackets to the leadership of the various boat operators associations within his Constituency.
Mr. Ablakwa has handed over a total of two-hundred (200) modern life jackets to all the ten (10) river crossing points as part of the North Tongu MP’s Safety First Project.
The ten (10) river crossing points that benefits from the North Tongu Member of Parliament’s Safety First Project are; Battor, Adidokpoe, Vome, Mepe, Alabonu, Dorfor Adidome, Gblornu, Torgorme, and Fodzoku.
According to Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, they have hit the ground and the waters running right after the epic inauguration, considering that they have so much to achieve in his beloved North Tongu over the next four years – a rather short space of time.
He again said, they are determined to ensure that our objective of preventing deaths during boat transportation on the Volta River is well and truly achieved.
“Though fatalities have significantly reduced due to numerous interventions and public education, I have set an ambitious target of zero death in my entire tenure as MP.” Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said.
