Minister inspects projects in Tamale metropolis

COLLINS DAUDA MINISTER OF WORKS AND HOUSING (1)Alhaji Collins Dauda, the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, has inspected ongoing infrastructural projects in the Tamale metropolis of the Northern Region.

They included the rehabilitated Tamale abattoir along the Kasalgu-Nyankpala road, storm drain project at Gumani-Nyanshegu, and upgrading of roads in Moshie-zongo and Tishiegu communities.

The projects costing 8.1 million Euros, were being funded by the French Development Fund, Agence François de Development (AFD), under the Ghana Urban Management Project, which would benefit Tamale, Sekondi-Takoradi metropolises and the Ho municipality.

Alhaji Dauda briefing journalists on his tour, in Tamale, expressed satisfaction about progress of work, saying,“ Government is encouraged by the various stages of the projects, especially the upgrading of the vehicles park at Abuabo.”

Alhaji Dauda said when completed by February next year, the Aboabu project would have 72 additional stores, passenger terminal, 120-seater water closet toilet and a paved park.

This, he said would help facilitate economic activities and improve the living conditions of the people in the metropolis.

The minister commended the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly for working to improve the welfare of the people

The Chief Executive of the Tamale Metro Assembly, Hanan Gumdadoo, said the assembly would ensure the completion of the projects.

Mumuni Haruna, Managing Director of SkyCon Ghana Limited, who is the contractor for the Aboabu project, expressed worry that the project which was about 70 per cent complete, may delay if funds were not released.

He, therefore, appealed to the authorities to release funds for the completion of the projects.
