Controversies surrounding the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) guinea fowls project are far from over as a group called the Progressive Youth Alliance in Bolgatanga has alleged that some officials of SADA are buying fresh fowls to make up the numbers.
According to the Progressive Youth Alliance, some officials of SADA were found in Zebila, Garu Timpani and its environs purchasing guinea fowls to support their claim.
The group which earlier refuted the existence of anything like guinea fowl project in the Upper East region, claimed SADA management is doing everything possible to defend the GHC15m pumped into the supposed guinea fowl project.
President of the Progressive Youth Alliance, Latif Solomon in an interview with Citi News called for forensic audit on SADA accounts.
He challenged SADA management to channel resources meant for the proposed guinea fowl project into revamping the defunct Pwalugu Tomato and meat factories in Bolgatanga.
Latif Solomon said the people of Upper East Region deserved their fair share of the SADA resources needed to alleviate the plight of the rural poor.
He invited well meaning Ghanaians in the region to kick against moves by SADA to use the area as a rubber stamp in its attempt to defend the GHC15 million allegedly used for the “invisible” guinea fowl project.
