Mr Adam Yussif, West Mamprusi District Chief Executive (DCE), has assured Ghanaians that the government is on course to execute its “Better Ghana Agenda,” to ensure that the citizenry benefit from the national cake.
He said though things were currently hard in the country, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government would never depart from what it campaigned, which were amongst others to invest in people, build a Better Ghana to alleviate poverty, fight hunger and disease.
Mr Yussif told the Ghana News Agency in an interview in Tamale on Wednesday that due to the temporary economic challenges facing the country, some skeptics were wondering whether the NDC, under the leadership of John Dramani Mahama, would be able to honour its promise of building a Better Ghana.
He said despite the current economic difficulties, massive infrastructural development was on-going all over the country, a testimony that the NDC government would never renege on its promise to develop the country.
He said there was visible infrastructure springing up in all districts in the country and that in the West Mamprusi District, a lot of projects had been completed while others were progressing steadily.
He said over 12 structures had been initiated and completed for the Yagba Senior High School in the Mamprugu/Moaduri District during the NDC second term in office, and that the Savanna Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) and the Millennium Villages Projgramme (MVP) were also transforming the district.
He said the SADA/MVP, which was launched in the district by President Mahama came in four intervention areas, namely agriculture, health, education and infrastructure development and that with regards to health, there had been a lot of rehabilitation of health centres in the district.
He said SADA/MVP had also constructed two CHPS compounds at Duo and Nabare communities and the Assembly had also constructed additional CHPS compound at Timburi and that on education, some 10-unit classroom blocks had been constructed at Nabare, rehabilitated a six-classroom block at Sariba and additional six-unit classroom block and rehabilitated an ICT centre for the people.
He said t government had also constructed the first ever storey market in the West Mamprusi District/ aimed at improving revenue collection to further develop the area.
He said a lot of rural communities in the district had also been connected to the national grid, and expressed the hope that Ghanaians would renew the mandate of the NDC in 2016, based on the massive development it had embarked on.
