The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Lawra Constituency in the Upper West Region and Deputy Minister of roads and highways, Anthony Abayifaa Karbo has given an assurance of working hard to get Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFUND) to increase the infrastructure in the Lawra Senior High School so that it can uplift the face of the school and be able to admit more student.

The MP, made this statement when he delivered his maiden address during the Lawra District Assembly’s first ordinary meeting in Lawra.

On other important issues affecting the district, the MP touched on roads stating that he was passionate about development hence he will ensure free movement of goods and services, and facilitate the face lifting of their market centers

According to him, he is liaising with the government to construct a two-hundred meter (200M) bridge across the Black Volta to facilitate trade between Ghana and Burkina Faso, adding, feasibility and costing has been finalized awaiting cabinet approval for construction to commence.

The Hon Deputy minister proceeded to add that, Ghana cannot construct the bridge whiles their counterparts in Burkina will not construct a road from the bridge to Bobodelaso, so discussion are still going on with their counterparts in Burkina Faso so that, the road from Boo through Dowine Eremong Zambo to Lawra Dikpe to Bobodelaso is declared an international Ecowas road so that, the African development Bank can step in to finance the project on the other side.
