Let me place on record that the Odaho toilet project is one of 30 modern toilet facilities being constructed in the Ejisu constituency under the one community, one modern toilet project.
In the past two years as the Member of Parliament for the constituency, I have delivered on my promise and fully completed the construction and commissioning of 11 out of 30 toilet facilities.
Odaho is about 90% complete and will soon be painted and commissioned by the community as the 12th facility to be built as part of my commitment to deal with sanitation issues in my constituency.
The rest of the facilities are all about 60% complete and work will continue.
