The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has promised to establish two new development authorities and restructure the existing Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) if it wins the December 7 polls.
In its campaign launch in Accra Sunday October 9, the Vice Presidential candidate of the NPP, Dr. Mahammudu Bawumia, said the two development authorities will be called Coastal Development Authority and Middle Belt Development Authority.
In addition to the two, the Nana Addo-led NPP administration will restructure SADA and give it what the party terms as presidential-led support to ensure its effective functioning. These programmes, the economist said will ensure development reaches every part of the country especially the deprived towns and villages.
Touching on SADA, Dr. Bawumia accused the John Mahama-led NDC administration of diverting money meant for the authority into the hands private individuals which has led to the failure of the authority to achieve its set purpose.
If comes into power, the NPP believes these three development authorities will be the driving machinery for developmental agenda of the country.
