Hon. Eugene Boakye Antwi Member of Parliament for Subin and Deputy Minister for Works and Housing has commissioned a Mechanized Borehole with Four (4) Large Polytanks to be utilized as Water Hydrants to serve Subin in particular and the wider Kumasi Metropolis in general.
The project is part of the lawmaker’s numerous projects he has been doing for his constituents.
The colorful project was funded through the MP’s portion of the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF), at a cost of Ghc86, 000.

He called other Kumasi Members of Parliament to emulate from Eugene Boakye Antwi and follow suit.
DOII. Mr. Rashid Nisawu also expressed their gratitude to the Member of Parliament for his support in the fight against fire outbreak.
He further said, their major challenges with regards to the fight against fire outbreak has been resolved with this water hydrant.
On 30th December, 2018, a chain of stores were ravaged by fire at PZ in the Central Business District (CBD) of Adum, Kumasi. Just over a year ago, within a period of seventy-two (72) hours, we experienced three (3) fire outbreaks at Asafo and Kumasi Central Markets.
Among the challenges faced by fire fighters in the Metropolis has been a lack of water for firefighting purposes.
Hon Eugene Boakye Antwi MP, Subin in consultation with the incident Commander discovered that fire hydrants in the CBD were not fully functional.
Hon Eugene Boakye Antwi MP, Subin made a commitment to construct a mechanized borehole with enough water storage capacity at the Metro Fire Station to solve the problem of lack of water for firefighting.
Hon. Eugene Boakye Antwi MP, Subin, therefore, believes that the construction of this mechanized borehole will improve the firefighting capacity within the Central Business District.
In combination with fire prevention measures, this project will minimize the havoc caused by fire to individuals and businesses in Subin and the Kumasi Metropolis as a whole.
