According to him, he started the project in 2019 during the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary primaries and has since then been able to provide over 36 boreholes to communities that had had water problems.

Before the projects, he said residents treks several kilometres to access water in both rivers and streams to access water for drinking and other domestic uses.
