President John Atta Mills will cut sod for the commencement of a Rural Electrification Project in the Northern Region to extend electrification to rural Ghana.

The project, which is part of an initiative to provide the requisite infrastructure in deprived areas, would also aid the agenda of the Savanna Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) aimed at rapid transformation of the area.

The President would be cutting the sod after the Easter Festivities when he visits the Northern Region.

The the Northern Regional Minister, Hon. Moses Mabengba said this at a sod cutting ceremony for the construction of Nkparibato Islamic Senior High School Complex at Kpalbe in the East Gonja District.

The school complex, which is an initiative of the Nkparibato Youth Association, is under the leadership of the East Gonja District Chief Executive (DCE), Hon. Alhassan Mumuni who has also established an
Educational Endowment Fund to assist brilliant but needy students in the district.

The project to be funded by the Association with support from government seeks to bring education to the door steps of the youth in the area to prevent them from migrating to the south.

Hon. Mabengba said more than 2,200 rural communities nationwide were expected to benefit from the project which will facilitate rapid national development.

He said as part of one of the key areas of the Better Ghana Agenda of the National Democratic Congress, the project would help to significantly reduce poverty and would create an effective platform for brisk income-generating activities in rural areas.

Hon. Mabengba reiterated government’s commitment towards investment in people through various social projects and intervention.

On the school complex, he said the regional administration would consult with the Ghana Education Service to regularize it to become a public institution and promised 100 bags of cement towards the building of the school.

Hon. Mumuni appealed to the youth to take their education seriously, since it was the only source of acquiring knowledge.

The Chief of Kpalbe, Kitiwura Mahama Saaka called on the Electoral Commission to consider creating another constituency in the area to enhance participatory democracy and equity.

He also appealed to the government to help complete the Tamale-Salaga- Makango stretch of the road to ease the movement of goods and people in the district.

Lepo Wura M. N. D Alhaji Jawula called on the people in the district to unite and work hard to ensure peace in the area.
