Tamale to get first major shopping mall


The Chief Executive Officer of the Savanna Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) has disclosed that the Northern Regional Capital, Tamale, will soon get its first ever major shopping mall.


The initiative is one of the numerous projects being put in place by the Authority to spur economic and social growth and to make the Northern Savanna Ecological Zone an investment destination, Mr Abugre said.


He told Public Agenda in a recent interview that, “we have been working to get the first major shopping mall in tamale and I think that is getting closer, and will be coming on stream shortly.”


The CEO mentioned further that “there is solar energy project coming on stream, ”to add to the energy needs and to improve the lives of the people within the SADA zone.”


He said a lot of work  has  gone  into stabilizing the  authority  from its internal challenges and it is  now bent on ensuring the  implementation of its  core mandate, which is the long term development of the zone.

He said the Authority has been pushing government to construct the Pwalugu Multi -Purpose Dam, “and this new government is committed to the construction of the Dam.”


Mr Abugre added , “We  have  almost finished with   a  comprehensive planning  on  how we  will  industrialise the  north  in 25 years   that  is  what  we  call   our  master  plan,  this  is  currently    the  economic  management team to  review  before  we  can finalise it.


In January last   year, Mr Abugre indicated to Citinews that plans were being made to transform Tamale into the ‘Dubai’ of Ghana.

“We can turn that place into more or less your future Dubai, but a much more pleasant Dubai. You can green the place, you can do industry in the place, you can build major shopping centres for the West African region in that place, and you can build warehouses, you can design a proper city that is clean, green, vibrant” Mr. Abugre explained.
