One-district one-warehouse project in Wa East on course – U/W Minister

 

A 1,000-metric ton capacity warehouse is being constructed under One District One Warehouse initiative in the Wa East District of the Upper West Region to help prevent post-harvest losses and aid mass production of food crops.

It comes with a security post, waiting area where people would stay until their goods are cleared, storeroom, office, laboratory and a fence wall.

Mr Ansuar-Dean Nanjo, the Project Site Supervisor for Sambix Construction Limited – the contractors, said the job started in August 2018 and expected to be complete in February this year.

The project is one of the seven being built across the region.

Alhaji Sulemana Alhassan, the Regional Minister, has inspected the progress of work and expressed satisfaction with what he saw.

He asked the contractors to do everything to make sure that it was completed on schedule.

Wa East District is one of the ‘food baskets’ of the region.

He said the completion of the facility would significantly reduce post-harvest damages – stop food produced from going waste.

“We produce enough but the next headache now is how to store it,” he added.

The project, alongside other interventions, is geared towards attaining government’s policy objective of developing Ghana beyond aid.

He called for all to help make the vision a dream come true.
