On Monday, June 13, 2022, my modest self and the good of Yendi hosted His Excellency the Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to break the grounds for the construction of the $150m Tamale-Tatale road-167km. This is a great milestone in terms of our road infrastructure in our part of the world.
Upon the advent of my mandate as Member of Parliament for Yendi Constituency, we set out to reconstruct and build towards a vision dubbed- the New Yendi City. This vision of New Yendi City, with the utmost support of the President, the Vice President and the government, is becoming a reality. For the first time in Yendi, we are enjoying the comfort of asphalted roads in town and we have the biggest streetlightening project ever adding glamour and improving the safety of the town.
This groundbreaking project which include complimentary projects- boreholes, schools and clinics- fits well into our grand vision of building a new city in Yendi- one that renews the hope of the majority of the people with full anticipation of a better life for all.
On my own behalf the traditional authorities and the good people of Yendi, we are extremely grateful to the government for staying true to the promise to reconstruct and expand the road to createan easy access link to improve trade and strengthen the safety of the roads for human traffic.
