President Akufo-Addo on Sunday, 19th May, 2019, ended his two-day tour of the Savannah Region, as part of his six-day working visit to the Oti, North East and the Savannah Region.

President Akufo-Addo’s visit to the Savannah Region, from Saturday 18th May to Sunday 19th May, took him to Daboya, Damongo, Sawla and Yapei.

Whilst at Daboya, the President paid a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief of Wasipe, Mimuni Anyami Kabasagya II, and interacted with smock weavers at Daboya, who later presented him and the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, with commemoratory smocks.

President Akufo-Addo also interacted with students of Sawla Senior High School, whose Headmaster thanked the President for the implementing the Free Senior High School policy.

“Under the Free Senior High Policy, we have witnessed improved infrastructural and logistical situation. I want to mention the 400 capacity girls’ dormitory which was completed and commissioned in September 2018, which is currently in use. A 2,000-capacity kitchen and dining hall complex, which is about 85% complete, will be completed by September 2019,” the Headmaster added.

He continued, “A mechanized borehole to supply water to the school; frequent and timely supplies of core textbooks in the ratio of 1 student to 1 textbook; supplies of free school uniforms, school cloth, house vests and PE kit to each student; and improved staffing situation.”

The Sawla SHS Headmaster stressed that “since the Free SHS policy of the government was started by His Excellency, enrolment has steadily increased from 37% in 2017/2018 academic year, to 39% in the current 2018/2019 academic year.”  

President Akufo-Addo also inspected ongoing construction of a District Hospital at Sawla, which is expected to be completed soon.

On Sunday, the President worshipped with the St. Anne’s Cathedral in Damongo. In his remarks, the urged residents of the Savannah Region eschew chieftaincy disputes and live as one people, as the cost of conflicts have had a devastating impact not only on the people of the region, but on the country as a whole.

He admonished the congregation to join in the fight against the menace of illegal mining, popularly referred to as galamsey, and indicated further that work on the Damongo Water Project will begin soon, with the matter set to be discussed at the next Cabinet meeting.
