Naa Professor John Nabila, a member of the Council of State, has commended the government for the numerous development projects it is undertaking in the Northern Region.

He said he was particularly impressed that majority of the projects were centred on the educational sector, which he described as the "pivot of development".

Naa Professor Nabila made these remarks when he and Naa Thomas Tia Sulemana another member of the Council of State accompanied Alhaji Mustapha Ali Idris, Northern Regional Minister to inspect a number of development projects in the Tamale Metropolis.

Naa Professor Nabila, who is also the Wulugu Naa, said if the educational sector was developed in the Northern Region it would open up other opportunities for the advancement of the Region and create jobs for the youth.

He commended the chiefs for giving out land for the development projects and said if the trend of development continued the Northern Sector would soon catch up with the South in development.

Naa Tia Sulemana, Zoosali-na called for cooperation and unity among the people of the Region for its rapid development, adding that the hosting of the CAN 2008 in the Region would open up more development opportunities for the area.

Some of the projects they inspected included the girls’ dormitory blocks for the Tamale Islamic Secondary School and the Northern School of Business (NOBISCO).

Others were the construction of hostel facilities for the Tamale Polytechnic and the University for Development Studies (UDS). The hostels would temporarily be used to accommodate visitors to Tamale to watch the CAN 2008 football fiesta.

They also inspected the new site for the Tamale Girls Secondary School where some projects were under construction.

The Council members also visited the construction site of the modern Tamale Sports Stadium, which is almost complete and were highly impressed by what they saw.

Mr Mark Chan, Project Engineer, who briefed them, said the stadium had a sitting capacity of 2,000, a Press Box to accommodate 10 television crews.

The stadium also has a 40-room hostel on the ground floor.

Mr Mark Chan said what was left for the completion of the project were the external works, involving a car park and a training pitch.

The two Council of State members had earlier inspected development projects in some of the districts.
