President Nana Akufo-Addo has named Damongo as the capital of the Savannah Region hours after he named Nalerigu as the capital of the North East Region.
In his presentation, the president stated: “You will not be far from wrong if you described the Savannah Region as the least developed part of the Northern Region. The irony in all of this is that the Savannah Region is blessed with an abundance of natural resources”.
He added that the onus now is on the government to put into motion the processes for the rapid development of the Savannah Region.
The Savannah Region like the other newly created regions will also get GHC 20 million to enable a smooth take-off.
