Nana Addo and Dr. Bawumia addressing the teeming crowd
The 2016 vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, says the recently announced Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP) will be administered by three development authorities.
These development authorities, he said, are the Northern Development Authority, for the three northern regions; the Middle-Belt Development Authority, for the Brong Ahafo, Ashanti, and Eastern regions; and the Coastal Development Authority for the four coastal regions.
“All these three authorities will be reporting to the Office of the President, and they will be the vehicles for the implementation of the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme,” he added.
Dr. Bawumia was addressing residents of Saboba in the Northern region, on Thursday, September 1, 2016, on the 3rd day of Nana Akufo-Addo’s tour of the region, when he made this known.
It will be recalled that on Tuesday, August 30, whilst in Bunkpurugu, Dr. Bawumia announced that an Akufo-Addo government will allocate US$275 million per year to tackle issues relating to infrastructural development and poverty eradication in rural and deprived communities across the country. This amount, which translates into US$1 million per constituency, he explained, is to be contained in the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme.
