Bawku Safe For Investment - DCE
The Municipal Chief Executive for Bawku, Mr Musah Abdulai, has said the municipality is fast regaining its stature after a period of intermittent conflict.
He said some businesses had bounced back to life as a result of the sustained peace in the area and that the assembly had provided the municipality with 15 boreholes from its internally generated revenue.
Speaking at the Samanpiid Festival of the chiefs and people of Bawku, Mr Abdulai said seven six-classroom blocks with added facilities were awarded on contract under the GETFund during the past year.
Two clinics and an additional 15 boreholes were being provided under the community-based rural development programme (CBRDP), he added.
He said the assembly used its own grader to improve several roads in the municipality, along with work done by the departments of Urban and Feeder Roads.
Mr Abdulai appealed to the youth of the area to take advantage of the prevailing peace and take their education seriously.
He said the area would benefit from the government’s prioritised policies, including job creation and infrastructure development, should the people bury all divisive tendencies.
The District Chief Executive for Garu-Tempane, Mr Dominic Akudagu, told the people that poverty, disease and ignorance, which were the challenges confronting the region, could not be overcome if they fail to come together to fight them.
