A group calling itself the Concerned Indigenes Association of Tamale has described as refreshing news that government has released an amount of GH¢ 100 million for the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) board.

In an interview with Joy News TV, the President of the Association Basharu Dabali said the move though long overdue, re-affirms government’s commitment to SADA.

The group hopes projects by SADA to transform the three northern regions will commence.

Vice President, John Dramani Mahama on Wednesday announced that government has already released GH¢ 100 million as its first tranche of funds for the smooth running of activities by SADA adding the money has been deposited in SADA’s account.

He said the remaining GH¢100 million seed capital for the Authority would be released in the second quarter of the year to support the execution of projects for accelerated development.

Vice President Mahama said this when he inaugurated the SADA Stakeholders Coordinating Committee in Tamale under the theme “Investing in people, jobs and strategic infrastructure”.

The delay in the takeoff of SADA has been a source of worry for many including NGOs and pressure groups as well as the opposition NPP.

Last month, the Young Patriots, a youth wing of the NPP took to the streets in Tamale to protest their displeasure over what they described as government’s lack of commitment to SADA.
