Since the announcement of the construction of a dam at Pwalugu to deal with the Bagre Dam spillage, majority of the public have welcomed the initiative.
It is in this vein, that Eric Amoako Twum, a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Communications Team has stated that the Pwalugu dam project coming up should serve as a catalyst for a multi sectoral grand marshal plan for the Northern parts of Ghana.
According to him, government should focus on large scale irrigation for agriculture agro processing, technology, youth training for employment and poverty eradication.
He said this on the newspaper review and analysis program, Citi TV in Accra.
“This is a very good initiative and we should look at it and explore other avenues such as agriculture and agro processing, technology, youth training to boost employment and tackle poverty.”
In a nut shell, he posited that all agencies, ministries and other stakeholders should plug in and build their strategies to create a synergy.
He was optimistic that Pwalugu Dam will go a long way to impact positively on the lives of the people.
As an astute Politician, Eric Amoako Twum is one of the finest communicators of the NPP government and even during their days in opposition.
Eric is one of the trailblazers for the emergence and growth of Fintech and Mobile Money and payment systems in Ghana as well as digital and online platforms such as Jobberman and Cheki. He takes pride in developing, harnessing, and building brands across Africa.
