Contractor working on extension of Salaga Electrification Project back on site


Contractor working on extension of Salaga Electrification Project is back on site.

In a big step for the Salaga South Constituency, energy expansion projects that have been delayed since 2020 are expected to start following a successful intervention by the constituency’s former Member of Parliament, Adam Salifu Braimah.


Between 2017 and 2019, the former Member of Parliament won extensions to electrification contracts.

More than 10 settlements, including SSNIT bungalows, Kakoshi Chakosi, Klaw, Kunshi, Dagbambia, and Yahayilli, were to benefit.

While progress was achieved in certain locations, significant material shortages hampered villages such as Yelwa, Nguan Dushi, Jonkponto, Nguan Mallam, and Iddipe, forcing a temporary construction standstill.

After three years of inaction, discussions in Accra between the former Member of Parliament and the Ministry of Energy, in partnership with Municipal Chief Executive for East Gonja Richard Broni, have generated favorable outcomes.

In an effort to revitalize the project that began in 2019, former MP Salifu Adam Braimah accompanied the contractor back to the project site.

He reprimanded the contractor to complete the project on time.

“This project is very dear to the people here and its completion will not only serve domestic impact, but also boost economic activities of the people.”

“It’s unfortunate that the contract stalled along the way, but thankfully you are back and we want you to work extra hard to meet the contract schedule.“

He stated that the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government remains dedicated to delivering the necessary infrastructure growth in all areas that would solve key concerns, and this is no exception.

The contractor guaranteed great work and pledged to fulfill the contract date.

Since 2017, the former Member of Parliament and first Savannah Regional Minister, has commissioned over 30 rural electricity projects in the Salaga South Constituency.

Prior to taking office in 2017, none of the Abrumase area’s nearly 70 towns were linked to the national grid.

However, more over 60% of the settlements in that enclave now have access to power, as do many others in the Kafaba, Sisipe, Massaka, and Yayilli electoral regions.
