The Archbishop of the Tamale Diocese of the Catholic Church and President of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference, Most Rev. Philip Naameh has called for the discussion and implementation of “One Village, One Dam” devoid of partisan politics.
According to him, it is a policy that has the potential to benefit the five regions in the Northern part of Ghana, as well as the entire country.
“…I will also like to observed that if we take partisan politics away from the One Village, One Dam’ policy, it is a policy that will benefit not only the five Northern Regions but the whole country.
I would, therefore, like to appeal to the Government that the implementation of this laudable project should not be driven by Party Political interests, but be properly implemented with the help of the Irrigation Development Authority (IDA) and other relevant agencies.” He said.
Most Rev. Naameh said this in a homily delivered at the funeral of the late C.K.Tedam at Paga in the Kassena-Nankana West in the Upper East Region over the weekend.
