The Ministry of Inner-City and Zongo Development is undertaking nationwide needs assessment of the various Zongo communities to determine what their priority development needs are for government’s appropriate action.

The Sector Minister, Alhaji Abubakar Saddique Boniface, said so far 479 such communities in five regions - Brong-Ahafo, Eastern, Central Upper West and Upper East, had been visited.

Answering questions related to the Ministry in Parliament, on Wednesday, Alhaji Boniface mentioned the Nangodi Zongo Community as one of the communities in the Upper East Region which had been visited.

Dr Mark Kurt Nawaane, MP for Nabdam Constituency in the Upper East where Nangodi Zongo is located, had asked the Minister what project he intended to implement in the Nabdam District for the year, 2018.

Alhaji Boniface said it emerged from discussions held with opinion leaders there that they had three felt-development needs - boreholes, oil extraction machine and English and Arabic Basic School.

The Ministry had been working with the Nangodi Zongo community to determine which of the projects was going to have the highest impact and therefore should be implemented in the 2018/2019 fiscal year.

“In the second stage of this exercise, the Ministry will continue with the Zongo community assessment needs in the remaining five regions - Greater Accra, Ashanti, Western, Volta and Northern Region,” the Minister said.
