SOCO Project Brings Vital Infrastructure to Tempane District

The Gulf of Guinea Social Cohesion (SOCO) Project has successfully completed a critical infrastructure project in the Tempane District, significantly improving the connectivity between several local communities.

As part of the SOCO Project, a new culvert has been constructed, linking the communities of Gbengbeman, Kpalsako, Nipabra, Tinbun, Tafakpan, and Charpinin, which lie along the border with Togo. This development is expected to greatly enhance transportation and communication within the district, especially during the rainy season when previous routes often became impassable.

The Minister for Local Government, Decentralisation, and Rural Development (MLGDRD), Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah, highlighted the government's commitment to continuing the rollout of sub-projects under SOCO in the Tempane District. "The Government will continue to bring more sub-projects under SOCO to the District to make life easy for the people of Tempane," he assured.

Minister Korsah made these remarks during a tour to inspect ongoing projects under both the SOCO and the Ghana Secondary Cities Support Program (GSCSP) in the Upper East and Northern Regions.

Residents of the Tempane District have expressed their gratitude for the new infrastructure. Zuwera, a beneficiary from one of the connected communities, shared her relief and appreciation: "We are grateful to the government for this culvert as we had to swim to cross from one community to the other during the rainy season."

The completion of this culvert marks a significant step forward in improving the quality of life for the residents of the Tempane District, showcasing the tangible benefits of the SOCO Project in fostering social cohesion and development in the region.
