Government’s one village one dam initiative is yielding the right dividends as farmers in the Northern Region begin enjoying the dams which are between 85 and 75 percent complete.

For example, Kpegu in the Kumbungu Constituency of the Northern region which is one of the villages that has benefitted from the one village one dam policy of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has its dam 85 percent complete.

The dams in Kpalegagbani in Yendi, Chakori and Jambaoi in Kpandai, Gugumpa, Sogon 1 and Songon 2 in Bimbilla are all 75% complete.

Even though these projects are yet to be completed, various communities have started benefiting from them.

November is a dry season in the northern part of the country and farmers who previously will stay home playing ‘Dame’ or travel from their villages to make ends-meet elsewhere, are now farming ‘non-stop’.

The National Communications Directorate the NPP led by the Director of Communications, Yaw Buabeng Asamoah yesterday, Thursday, November 8, 2018 began a tour of the three Northern regions to assess at first hand the construction of Dams under the government’s 1V1D policy. It is evidently clear that there is abundance of water for irrigation and the One Village, One Dam is real.
