Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has spoken of aggressive infrastructure development by the government to give impetus to productivity and sustainable economic growth.

It was the path to reduce poverty, promote economic development and prosperity.

The Vice President said this when he paid a courtesy call on the Overlord of the Waala Traditional Area, Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV, in his Wa Palace.

He was in the area to join Muslims there to pray for the nation during the Holy Month of the Ramada.

Vice President Dr Bawumia said they were going to focus priority on the construction of roads, dams, health and other vital infrastructure.

The three Northern Regions – Upper West, Northern and Upper East, between them, would have 570 dams and these had already been awarded on contract.

He added that employment creation was at the heart of the thinking and everything that the government was doing.

He made reference to the 100,000 jobs targeted to be created under the Nation Builders Corps and said there would be fair distribution of the jobs across the districts.

The Vice President announced that a Regional Police Hospital would be built in the Upper West as part of the drive to improve access to quality health care by the people.

Naa Seidu Pelpuo appealed for the conversion of the Wa Polytechnic into a Technical University.

He also asked that the government moved quickly to complete the Wa High Court and Regional Hospital projects.

Vice President Dr. Bawumia prayed with Muslims at the Wa Central Mosque and was scheduled to visit Jirapa and Tumu and then continue to the Upper East Region.
