The Northern Development Authority (NDA), has handed over classroom blocks  to two schools in the East Gonja Municipality.

The NDA has constructed and handed over two school projects to the Municipality, including a 3-unit classroom block for Imamiya Islamic Primary School and an additional 3-unit classroom block for Kpanbu M/A Primary School.

Each project is comprised of offices, libraries and washrooms.

Speaking during the handing over ceremony, the Savannah regional coordinator, Northern Development Authority (NDA), Vivian Adams, said the classroom blocks serve as true evidence of what the NDA is doing for the Northern Regions as part of the government’s flagship Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP).

She encouraged the municipal assembly to take good care of the projects to serve the needed purpose.

“As we are handing over the project to the Assembly, we pray that they will be able to take good care of the project. They will maintain it so that it will last long and serve the community and we hope that in future more projects will come,” Adams added.

She indicated that out of a total of 226 IPEP projects in the Savannah Region, 118 projects have been completed.

A total of 34 projects were expected to be constructed in the Salaga South and currently, 19 of them have been completed.

Adams said, the projects cut across areas such as education, health, roads, community centres, rural electrification, energy, water and sanitation.

On his part, the municipal chief executive for East Gonja, Richard Broni, thanked the NDA for having such an interest in his municipality, hoping that they will complete the remaining projects for the people.

He called for collaborative efforts with the NDA, the Assembly and the Ghana Education Service (GES).

“GES, the mother of education in the municipality, we are very grateful; let’s continue to work together. Let’s continue to set the interest of our children as the first priority so that, knowing the importance of education, these little ones will tomorrow grow and be beneficial to society,”‘ Broni said.

He urged parents to play a critical role in their children’s education and not leave everything in the hands of the Ghana Education Service (GES).

Alhaji Abudu Hudu, who represented the Ghana Education Service (GES) of East Gonja at the ceremony, assured that the facilities would be used for the intended purposes.
