Former president John Dramani Mahama, during his tenure in office was noted for his interest in various infrastructural projects.
Notable among these infrastructural projects are the E-blocks, hospitals, the airport as well as some other minor infrastructures.
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced that he would construct a university campus for the North East Region if he is elected back into power in the upcoming December polls.
According to Mahama the aim of building a university in that region, would offer the youth there the opportunity to further their education to the tertiary level per a report filed by CitiNews.
He made the promise amongst other infrastructural development plans at Gambaga in the North East Region during a campaign tour in the community.
“The North Eastern Region is going to get a university campus here so that our young people who want to continue into tertiary education can do so,” he said.
He also pledged to develop sporting infrastructure with a view to developing hidden talents in the region.
According to him, not only will the North East get a stadia, but also other regions that are lacking as well.
“All the regions that don’t have sports stadiums are going to get new sports stadia. And the sports stadia will be to develop sporting talent,” Mr. Mahama added.
“So if you are an athlete, you are a footballer, you are volleyball player, the facilities will all be there, and we will spot the talents in the North East Region, take them to the national level and if they are good enough, we will take them to the international level.”
