West Gonja district makes major development history in Northern Region


Governance in Ghana today, does not only occupy the central stage in the development discourse but it is also development strategy and one that seeks to improve the living standard of people in a given jurisdiction.

Years past, incumbent government will choose to throw out unfinished projects by a previous administration thus those projects becoming unproductive while they commence with their fresh development agenda.

One of the completed projects by the West Gonja District Assembly.

This practice has seen an end in the West Gonja District of the Northern region as the  Assembly led by the District Chief Executive for the area Hon. Saeed Muhazu Jibril has completed all uncompleted government projects by the Mahama led NDC administration in the district including school buildings, health facilities such as CHIPS compounds, and clinics among others.

The DCE, who was speaking exclusively to Kesmi news’ Prince Kwame Tamakloe, explained that, his decision not to abandon the uncompleted projects by his predecessors is aimed at making a judicious use of the district assembly’s common fund and to ensure a rapid development in is vicinity.

Hon. Saeed notwithstanding, added that though the uncompleted projects have been accomplished, his outfit made over 1,200 hectres of land for maize, soya beans and rice under the NPP’s flagship program “Planting for food and jobs” of which there would be an increment of over 2,000 hectres this farming season.

On the long standing water predicaments in Damongo and other parts of the district, the DCE mentioned that, the water supply management in the West Gonja district has been switched from the Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSC) to the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL)
