“As part of the government’s better Ghana agenda these selected communities will witness massive basic infrastructure while latest agriculture technologies will also be deplored to improve traditional farming methods”, the CEO said.

He mentioned some communities such as Siliga, Nabari, Sariba, Duu, Jagsi and Katrigri in the West Mampurusi District and Gbedembilisi, Dalaasa, Kandem and Luisa as among the 34 deprived communities to benefit from this initiative.

He appealed to members of the selected communities to support the project when finally commerce in their respective areas to speed up progress of work.

Aside these projects, SADA would rollout major infrastructure development across the three regions of the north and that it was putting in place necessary frameworks and structures in place to ensure SADA faced little challenges in implementation of its activities.

The minister said that currently there are ongoing high level discussions for sustainable funding for SADA indicating the government would be holding funding or donor forum on the programme soon to attract necessary donor funding for the project.

He appealed to people agitating against the government over SADA implementation to exercise restraints as necessary works are being done to commerce the implementation of the programme. “We want it lasting and sustainable but not to rush and face implementation difficulties in terms of funding”, he said.

Mr. Mabengba said that SADA would integrate and harmonize existing plans and programmes to avoid as possible the neglect of the ongoing projects in the area. He however, appealed to the SADA-MVP to include chiefs and media in the implementation of the programme to make it transparent.

When could be the last time you can remember someone asking to borrow $20? I knew a guy who was always looking for money. He constantly complained that he did don't have enough money for gas and food, yet he always had money to achieve his dog groomed and bought his dog expensive food. His constant requests for money drove me crazy!
