Valued at $199.85 million, the projects include a water supply system, housing facility, shopping mall and market infrastructure. The Public Private Partnership agreement interventions are being initiated by the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly, College for Community and Organisational Development (CCOD) and Jaksally Development Organisation, with funding support from Turkey-based Lola Group.

The housing and water supply projects are designed to meet the housing and water needs of over 500,000 inhabitants in the metropolis.
On the other hand, the market and shopping mall component aims to accommodate traders, boost commercial activities and generate revenue for the city's ongoing development.

Groundbreaking

At a brief ceremony to cut the sod in Tamale, the Metropolitan Chief Executive, Sule Salifu, underscored the importance of adequate housing for the dignity, security and well-being of the residents.

He said the intervention was crucial for addressing pressing needs and laying a foundation for a sustainable future, fostering economic growth and enhancing the overall quality of life within the metropolis.

"We are not just providing shelter but also creating vibrant communities where families can thrive, children can grow and dreams can be realised," Mr Salifu said.
Beyond that, he said it would enhance living conditions, reduce overcrowding, and strengthen the social fabric of the city, positioning Tamale as a hub of commerce in Ghana.

Support

The Leader of the Lola Group, Vivian Terrence Fray, expressed the organisation's commitment to supporting African governments, NGOs, and local communities in their development efforts.

He outlined the expected benefits of the projects, including job creation, economic stimulus and bolstering the metropolis’ attractiveness as a business, tourism, and innovation centre.

He cautioned the contractors against substandard work, stating, "We will not tolerate any shortcuts during the execution of these projects." Mr Fray indicated that similar initiatives would be replicated in the Savannah and North East regions as part of their priority development plans.
