The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to allocate part of his $100 million coronavirus budget in making the water desalination plant in Krowor operational again.

The scarcity of water in the area has become a nightmare amidst the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic.

A statement issued by the constituency chairman, Willinda Bortey Wradi said the acute water shortage within Nungua, Teshie, among others makes nonsense of the WHO safety recommendations of regular handwashing as a preventive measure against the coronavirus pandemic.
