The Member of Parliament (MP) for Atiwa-East, Hon Abena Osei-Asare over the weekend supplied 16 electoral areas with 300 complete streetlight bulbs.
The gesture was to ensure that all communities within the constituencies are lightened up.
Speaking to the Kingdomfmonline.com at the presentation ceremony, Hon Osei-Asare said the street lights would help to provide visibility in the constituency at night.
She noted the communities look dark in the evenings, adding it was necessary to help provide light for the people so that they could conveniently carry out their legitimate activities at sunset.
“After a careful observation at the 16 electoral areas I realised visibility needed to be improved so that at sunset residents and traders could carry out their legitimate activities without being overcome by darkness”, the MP noted.
