Minister inspects development projects in Northern, Upper East Regions

Hon. Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah, Minister for the Ministry of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development (MLGDRD), has embarked on a two-day working visit to the Northern and Upper East Regions to inspect ongoing projects under the Gulf of Guinea Northern Regions Social Cohesion (SOCO) Project and the Ghana Secondary Cities Support Program (GSCSP).


On the first day of the tour, Minister Adjei-Mensah Korsah visited several project sites, including the Sagnarigu Livestock Market, Nanumba CHPS Compound, Sagnerigu Lockable Stores and a storey building, Azogbeli Astro Turf Park, and Yendi lockable stores at the Central Market.


During his inspections in Azogbeli, Sagnerigu, and Yendi, the Minister reviewed the progress of the work and engaged with the contractors. He expressed his satisfaction with the progress and urged the contractors to expedite the completion of the projects for the benefit of the local communities.


The local chiefs, representing their communities, were grateful to the government for initiating and supporting these developmental projects. They highlighted the positive impact these projects have had on their daily lives and the overall well-being of their communities.


Continuing his tour on the second day, the Minister visited the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly and the Tempane District in the Upper East Region.


At Tempane, he praised the impressive progress of a newly constructed culvert linking the Gbengbeman, Kpalsako, Nipabra, Tinbun, Tafakpan, and Charpinin communities, which has improved accessibility, especially during the rainy season.


"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," said Zuwera, a community beneficiary.


In Bolgatanga Atolisum Municipal, the Minister inspected a newly completed three-unit classroom block with an office and a four-seater KVIP. Additionally, he reviewed a completed CHPS Compound at Kassena Atibabisi Nankana East. He commended these projects' impact on the local population, enhancing education and healthcare facilities.


Hon. Korsah reiterated the Government's commitment to bringing more sub-projects under the SOCO initiative to the District, saying, "The government will continue to bring more sub-projects under SOCO to the District to make life easy for the people of Tempane," he stated.


According to him, the Government is pleased with the tangible improvements the projects have brought to the people's lives.


The visit underscores the government's dedication to fostering regional development and improving the quality of life for its citizens through targeted infrastructure projects.
