World Bank provides funds for Tatale-Yendi road – President Mahama

Government has secured funding from the World Bank to construct a bituminous double surface dressing road from Tatale to Zabzugu to Yendi in the Northern Region, President Mahama has said.
He said proposals had been approved and now going through the tendering process for work to begin on the 80-kilometre road up to Natchamba which shared boundary with the Republic of Togo.
President Mahama said this when he addressed party supporters at Tatale in the Tatale-Sangule District as part of his four-day campaign tour of the Northern Region.
On the third day of his campaign tour of the region, President Mahama addressed a similar rally at Zabzugu, called on the Regent of Dagbon at Yendi and slated to address other rallies at Yendi, Sambu and make whistle stops at Sang and Jimle.
President Mahama said the people of Tatale, Zabzugu and Yendi had suffered for so many years because of the bad nature of their roads and it was only fair to construct a highway that would serve them for many years.
“I will do everything possible to ensure that the people of this area enjoy their share of the national cake…but we can only achieve this if you live in peace and unity,” he said.
The President said his Administration would continue to offer all the social amenities for Ghanaians as it was mandatory of every responsible government to serve its people.
The President called on the leaders of the National Democracy Congress to close their ranks and ensure a victory for the party and the NDC parliamentary candidate for Tatale-Sangule, Mr Acheampong Tampi.
Obore Gariba Yankosor II, the Bassare Paramount Chief of Tatale, commended President Mahama for providing the area with potable water and electricity.
He, however, appealed to the President to extend such facilities to Kandin, Sheini, Sangule, Tatindo, Kparibotabo and other adjoining communities to enable the inhabitants to fully engage in commercial activities.
Obore Yankosor denounced partisan activities that could undermine the peace and unity the area is enjoying and gave the assurance that, as a paramount chief, he would do everything under his purview to unite the people irrespective of their ethnic and political affiliation.
He appealed to President Mahama to explore the possibility of mining the iron ore deposits at Sheini to create jobs for the youth in the area and accelerate development.
The Paramount chief later enskinned President Mahama as the Development Chief of the Tatale-Sangule District.
