The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Bawku Municipality, Hamza Amadu, has indicated that despite the skepticism and criticism surrounding the One Village One Dam (1V1D) initiative, Bawku has emerged as a success story, showcasing the potential for agricultural development, especially during the dry season.

According to Mr. Amadu, the town has benefited from the implementation of the policy, with significant strides in dry-season farming.

“These dams are not just structures; they are lifelines for our local farmers. If you want proof, come to Bawku. Out of the 8 dams, 7 of them are doing fantastically well, and farmers are cashing in,” stated Amadu.

The MCE, who spoke in an interview with A1 Radio, emphasized that the functioning dams have enabled farmers to engage in dry-season farming, thereby extending the agricultural calendar and increasing overall productivity.

He added that the impact on the livelihoods of the beneficiary farmers has been substantial, with increased yields and improved economic conditions.

Bawku has historically been marked by conflicts, but the MCE also pointed out that despite these challenges, the current government under the National Patriotic Party (NPP) has been relentless in pushing developmental projects to the area.

“The residents of Bawku are reaping the benefits of these developmental projects, and the impact is undeniable,” he stated.
