The government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is supporting its counterpart in Ghana (Government of Ghana) with funds for the construction of a Community Center Complex for the Chiefs and people of Kumbungu in the Tolon-Kumbungu District of the Northern Region.

The project, which cost over US$50,000, would serve as a centre for the exchange of culture, a museum, and social gatherings.

When completed, the Kumbungu Community Center would have a well-furnished ICT centre to enhance the learning of ICT in the area, offices, a restaurant and guest house for visitors to the area.

Cutting the sod for work to begin on the project, the Foreign Minister, Alhaji Mohammed Mumuni, who lobbied for the project during his visit to Iran, commended the Iranian government and their Ambassador in Ghana, H.E. Mohammed Sulemana, for the support.

He outlined how relations between Iran and Ghana had immensely benefited the people of Kumbungu and the rest of Ghana.

According to the Minister, it took good lobbying efforts on his part to get the Iranian government to bring the support to the people and urged the people to own it.

Alhaji Mumuni assured the Chiefs and people of the area of more of such interventions from government and its partners.

The Paramount Chief of Kumbungu, Kumbu-Naa Iddrisu Abu, commended the Minister, the government of Ghana, and the Iranian government for the project.
According to him, the people of the area started dreaming of a Community Center some decades ago, and that the sod-cutting ceremony alone was a dream come true.

He called on the Minister and the Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, Alhaji Yakubu Imoro, who are all natives of the area, to collaborate strongly to bring more of such development.
