CDD inaugurates new Office in Tamale
He said opening of an Office in Tamale is a major milestone for CDD-Ghana, noting that the metropolis occupies a critical place in the institutionalisation of democratic governance in the country.
He said Tamale being the capital of a very large region continues to be one of the most vibrant and dynamic cities in Ghanaian politics, adding that above all Tamale's strategic location makes it a key strategic link between the Upper East and Upper West regions.
"Our new location in Tamale puts the Centre in a better position to expand and deepen collaboration with democracy and governance publics and civic bodies in the three northern regions", Prof Gyimah-Boadi said.
He observed that the Centre had in the past organised various capacity-building programmes for a number of key stakeholders in the Northern Region, stressing that by pitching its camp in Tamale, it would further facilitate this exercise and even yield greater results than it had been able to do from its base in Accra.
The Executive Director said the new Tamale Office would also help facilitate its research work, analysis and dissemination activities in the northern half of the country and enhance the ability of the Centre to contribute to the discourse on democratic governance in the area.
Mr Moses Bukari Mabengba, Regional Minister commended CDD-Ghana for opening an Office in Tamale and urged researchers, academics, civil society groups and students to take advantage of the facilities at the centre to study and carry out research work.
