A 2.9 billion-cedi girls’ dormitory project is being sponsored by the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GET-Fund) for the Northen School of Business in Tamale.

Inspecting the project, the Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama advised students to be disciplined and to refrain from acts that would jeopardize their academic pursuit.

He asked them to go beyond their textbooks and research into areas that would improve on their lot and shield them against social vices such as sexual promiscuity and hooliganism.

He assured the students that he would personally champion efforts to get the school computers befitting the status of an academic institution that had not seen any development for the past 30 years.

Vice President Mahama urged the students not to be discouraged by the deprived nature of the school saying, "It is not the buildings that matter but how you conduct yourselves."

The Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mustapha Ali Iddris, said the dormitory project was the first government-sponsored project for the school since its establishment.

He said a boys’ dormitory and a dining hall complex would also be provided for the school through the GET-Fund.

The Tamale Metropolitan Chief Executive, Mr Mohammed Amin, said a headmaster’s bungalow would be provided, while the school’s park would be fenced and provided with seats and a dressing room as part of preparations towards CAN 2008.

Vice President Mahama also inspected a 5.8 billion-cedi boys and girls dormitories at the Tamale Islamic Secondary School. He assured the students that he would liaise with the GET-Fund to get the school a bus.

Vice President Mahama urged the students to embrace the study of science and mathematics and learn to coexist with Christians and adherents of other religions since Ghana was a secular state.

Vice President Mahama who is on a five-day official tour of the Northern, Upper East and Brong Ahafo Regions, had inspected the Tamale Stadium project, other projects at the Tamale Secondary School and the upgrading of the Tamale Police Park into a modern parade ground.
