President John Mahama has promised the people of Abura in the Cape Coast North constituency one meter per house.
According to the president, the initiative will reduce tension at the various households with the usage of electricity.
The sharing of light bills, he explained, has become a source of petty squabbles in many homes in the area per the reports he has received from the authorities.
Mahama said it is his hope that the provision of an additional 1,500 prepaid meters in the vicinity will help reduce not only tension in sharing the bills, but also for consumers to be able to regulate and monitor their consumption.
“I know the huge problem facing the people of Abura. A lot of households do not have meter. Most of you are sharing meters. I have instructed that 1500 meters be provided to this township so that every house will have a separate meter for peace to prevail,” Mahama promised the jubilant crowd.
Speaking at the Abura Roman Park as part of his campaign tour in the Central region, Mahama appealed to the people to give him another four years to continue with his transforming lives agenda.
He added that he has laid a solid foundation for the country to take off and it is prudent he is allowed to finish with the transformation drive he has started as a different leader will not be able to carry out his vision well.
