The Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly (BMA) inaugurated the mechanical enclave on August 18, 2023, in the Kalbeo-Tindonsobilgo community near BOST. Funded by the World Bank, this initiative is poised to enhance the livelihoods of residents and nurture technical skills and innovation among the area’s youth.

Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) Rex Asanga highlighted the workshop’s purpose: creating an enabling environment for local mechanics to enhance their skills, work on modern vehicles, and remain competitive in a dynamic market. He further stressed its role as a hub for skill development, innovation, and entrepreneurial growth among the youth.

“Our aim is to empower the local mechanics and create a platform for them to become self-reliant,” he stated. “We believe that by investing in our local talent, we can unlock new opportunities for economic growth and development.”

The workshop is expected to offer a comprehensive range of services, including vehicle maintenance, repairs, welding, and metal fabrication. This approach not only enhances mechanics’ capabilities but also encourages diversification of skills and exploration of new markets. The facility is also accompanied by a new police post and a fire service post, to be manned by personnel.

Local mechanics were expected to commence operations at the facility in the first week of September 2023. 

But the move to the enclave has been delayed because of the rains, according to the secretary of the Upper East Regional Association of Garages, Albert Naabil. 

This came to light when Mr. Naabil spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Tuesday, October 10, 2023.

“We were supposed to move by September to the enclave, and we have been working around the clock with the Municipal Assembly. They asked for our list, and we sent it to them. Why we havent moved yet is because of the rain. Looking at the nature of the place, it would be difficult to move. Once the rains subside, it is believed that by the end of the month, we will have moved,” he said.
