SADA To Bridge Development Gap

charlesabugreThe management of the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) is re-strategising and re-doubling its efforts to bridge the developmental gap between the north and south.

The new Chief Executive Officer of SADA, Charles Abugre, briefing the media in Tamale ahead of a stakeholders meeting yesterday said SADA management would soon come out with measures to effectively and efficiently deliver on their mandate.

The meeting on the theme: Strengthening development coordination and increasing development in the SADA Zone, was being attended by the four regional ministers of SADA Zone and the country’s international development partners.

According to Mr Abugre the meeting was to offer both SADA management and development partners an opportunity to initiate measures to effectively deal with challenges hampering the development of the Savannah ecological zone.

Mr Abure added that the meeting was also to accelerate sustainable socio-economic development of the SADA zone intended to function out longer-term strategic process of fostering and strengthening partnerships and development impact in the ecological zone.

He said SADA’s mandate was to coordinate existing and future development and related policies but not to execute or implement projects and for that reason SADA would not hesitate to mobilise both human and financial resource to accelerate the development of the area.

He urged media practitioners to abreast themselves with SADA’s vision and mission which would put them in a better position to report accurately on SADA activities.

The Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mohammed Muniru Limuna, lauded the new move embarked on by the new SADA board and management and optimistic that the new approach by the management would, in no small way, accelerate the development of the area.

He therefore appealed to the development partners to support the new SADA management to realise its objectives.

Mission Director of United States Agency for International Development, Jim Bever,   assured the new board and management of SADA his outfit’s commitment to the development of the savannah ecological zone.
