Veep inaugurates projects at Garu

H.E Dr. John Dramani Mahama, the Vice President in Ghana, has confirmed government’s determination to make health care accessible to all, by providing the needed infrastructure, equipment and human resources to man every medical centre.

He said to facilitate high level productivity; government will continue to improve working conditions to make the public sector attractive.Dr. Dramani Mahama gave the assurance in the Garu-Tempane District of the Upper East Region, when he inaugurated a number of developmental projects, including 20 bore holes, a six -classroom primary school at Kpatia and Community Health Planning Services compound.The Veep also distributed 10 pickup vehicles to some district health centres and tricycles for leadership skills development projects. Mr. David Adakurugu, District Chief Executive (DCE), on his part called on Government to intensify the decentralisation concept, since the involvement of the citizenry at the grassroots level will contribute in the decision making process to ensure development.He reiterated the Assembly’s preparedness to incorporate the views of the people in its plans and programmes, which will eventually reflect the needs of the area.  Mr. Adakurugu said pragmatic measures have been put in place to raise the level of locally generated revenue for the assembly and that last year’s revenue increased from GH¢279,193.55 to GH¢ 332,999, representing 19.27 percent increase.
