Mr Azumah Namoro Sanda, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Saboba/Chereponi, has appealed to people who were not affected by recent floods in the Northern Region not to clamour for relief items meant for the victims.
He said reports reaching the District Assembly and the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) office indicated that some people, who were not affected by the floods, had registered their names in order to benefit from relief items.
Mr Sanda made the appeal at Tanjameli, a farming community near Saboba at a ceremony to commission an Early Childhood Development Centre built. The facility was build by Tuma-Kavi, a Tamale-based non-governmental organisation (NGO).
The Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC), an international NGO based in Tamale, funded the facility with the objective of making education accessible to children in their early childhood days.
Mr Sanda said under the new educational reforms, it is mandatory for all primary schools to have Early Childhood Development Centres and expressed the hope that the Tanjameli centre would develop to become a primary and Junior High Schools to improve education in the communities.
