SADA to develop Pwalugu and Sissili basins -President Mills
Tumu, March 11, GNA – The Savannah Accelerated
Development Authority (SADA) would soon partner a
Dutch consortium to undertake detailed feasibility
for the design of major infrastructure in the
Pwalugu and Sissili River basins, President John
Atta Mills announced in Tumu on Saturday
By that socio-economic intervention, the people,
especially the rural poor would be empowered
economically to narrow the gap between the south
and the north in terms of development
President Mills was addressing a durbar of chiefs
and people of the Tumu Traditional Area at this
year's “Paari Gbielle” Festival in a speech read
for him by Mr. Alexander Asum-Ahensah, Minister of
Chieftaincy and Culture.
He admitted that the Government alone could not
shoulder all the developmental responsibilities of
the country and called for meaningful partnership
from the private sector and civil society to
pursue its developmental objectives.
On the forthcoming general elections, President
Mills assured Ghanaians that government was
committed to ensuring peaceful, transparent, free
and fair elections come December 7 this year.
The Electoral Commission would be resourced to
effectively and efficiently conduct the polls that
would be free, fair and transparent.
According to President Mills, government would
ensure that proper and adequate security was
maintained to enable every eligible Ghanaian to
exercise his or her franchise without fear.
“As a government, we are committed to building
upon the democratic credentials we have achieved
as a nation since 1992”, he said, and called for
the cooperation of all Ghanaians and other persons
residing in Ghana in that regard”
President Mills cautioned Ghanaians to be guarded
against politics of insults, character
assassination and fabrications and rather harness
their differences in ideologies, values, beliefs
and culture to build and strengthen the country.
He also appealed to Ghanaians to play their roles
appropriately in ensuring free, fair, and credible
elections, pointing out that it was a shared and
collective responsibility and all must play his or
”We should use all available fora, the media,
social gatherings, churches and mosques to educate
one another about peace, unity and tolerance.
Indeed, we should be mindful and appreciate that
our political opponents are not our enemies and
therefore we should shy away from acts and
utterances that will breed acrimony”, President
“Paari Gbielle”, literary means farmers play. It
is an agricultural festival bequeathed to the
people by their forefathers and it is being
celebrated annually to give thanks to God and the
ancestors for good harvests.

development - A collective responsibility”
