SADA vows to transform Savannah Ecological Zone


The Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) has vowed not to  relent on its effort to making the Northern Ecological (the SADA Zone) as the potential to lift the growth and transformational potential  of the entire country.

The authority said it will make the country as a truly middle income if the appropriate attention by the public and private sectors was given to addressing the infrastructure deficits and harnessing the immense productive potentials that lie unexploited. 
To this end, SADA organized a five-day Business Investment Forum dubbed, SABIF 2015 and Tamale 2015 where over one hundred and twenty (120) both local and international exhibitors from all sectors of economy are participating. 
The forum which is in collaboration with the Ghana Institution of Engineers is on the theme,”Engineering Opportunities and Share Prosperity in the Northern Savannah Ecological Zone”.

Mr Charles Abugri mentioned agriculture, the Argo-ecology as some of potentials that supports a wide range of arable land crops in the SADA ecological zone. 
The arable land potential is approximated at 6.1 million hectares suitable for the cultivation of cereals, legumes, tubers cash crops such as cotton, cashew and mangoes. 
Out of the 6.1million arable land, only 1.5 million hectares are currently cultivated.
The SADA zone according to the C.E.O is a large market if the people see it as bridge to the southern part of Ghana as well as the rest of the Guinea Savannah and assured that the authority can facilitate the process of making ECOWAS protocol actually meaningful. 
The Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mohammed-Muniru Limuna urged investors not to hesitate to invest in about 40% SADA zone geographical cover of Ghana.
He  told  the investors that the zone is endowed with numerous assets that urgently need to be converted into income for inclusive national growth and poverty reduction.
Alhaji Limuna observed that the total transformation of the northern Savannah ecological zone lies on increased investment in the region that will create opportunities and move away people from peasant agriculture to modernized commercial agriculture.
