After meeting with the Council of Muslim Chiefs at the Flagstaff House, Tuesday, June 10, 2014, President John Dramani Mahama posted government plans for the Zongo Communities on his Facebook wall.
He said, “I told the Council of Muslim Chiefs that our government is to begin soon a major project aimed at improving the living conditions in the Zongo communities. This project, which is undertaken in collaboration with the Brazilian government, consists of building and developing roads, housing and drains.”
