Mohammed Amin Adam, Tamale Metropolitan Chief Executive, has appealed to contractors, especially those in the north to have sympathy on their people and execute quality work to prolong the life span of projects, such as school blocks.
He said, "These days, contractors are putting blocks and sand together to represent buildings without thinking of the plight of their people and the consequences that their shoddy work would impact on the people and their communities”.
Mr Adam expressed the appeal at the weekend when he inspected some schools and houses which were damaged or completely destroyed by rainstorm in the Tamale Metropolis, rendering many people homeless.
The heavy rainstorm occurred on Thursday night and caused havoc to buildings and damaged electricity poles to disrupt power supply to some suburbs within the Metropolis.
“Help us to build a strong and modern city for investors to choose our region for development” because Accra, Kumasi and other cities in the south were saturated, adding that if contractors were executing good and quality work, Tamale would become Ghana's future business destination,” he said.
