The East Gonja District Assembly in partnership with the Ministry of Communications have built an Information, Communication Technology (ICT) Centre at the cost of GH¢11,600 for the people of Salaga and surrounding communities.

The centre is equipped with 15 computers and fully connected to the Internet services to ensure that students had adequate knowledge and training on computer and the Internet.

Mr Amadu Musah Abudu, East Gonja District Chief Executive (DCE), told the GNA at Salaga after inspecting some development projects, that the centre would offer computer training to people of the area at subsidised rates to ensure that many people became computer literate. He said the centre had space for about 45 computers and that the

Assembly would source more computers to equip it to enhance teaching and learning and advised people in the area particularly students to make judicious use of the centre and acquire computer knowledge. Other projects that the DCE inspected included the about GH¢320,000 Salaga Storm Drainage System and the newly constructed police station built at the cost of GH¢152,000 and the renovation of the District Chief Executive's residence.

At the Salaga Storm Drainage System, the DCE appealed to the contractor, Klass Ghana Limited to speed up work to complete before the rains set in as the project was behind schedule. Mr Abudu expressed concern about the poor nature of the road from

Tamale to Salaga and appealed to government to tar it to facilitate movement and to boost businesses. He said it was necessary for the government to also tar the road from Salaga to Makango which many vehicles plied with foodstuff to feed the southern sector of the country.
