Ningo (GAR), Aug. 26, GNA – Nene Kanor Attiapa, the Acting President of the Ningo Traditional Area, has urged the government to attract both local and foreign investors with significant tax incentives.
He said this would encourage entrepreneurs to invest more in projects that would go a long way to improve the living conditions of the people.
Nene Attiapa made the appeal in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after he had performed some rites to hand over lands for the construction of 225 MW Wind Energy by NEK Ghana Limited, a power generating company.
He described the project as a good deal and expressed happiness, saying: “I believe that after the completion of the project our woes of power outages within the traditional area will be over.”
Mr Michael Sporri, the Project Development Wind Energy, told the GNA that the project would start next year and would be completed in 18 months.
He said the power which would be generated would contribute 10 per cent to the Ghana’s energy stock, adding; “It is a reliable renewable electricity power to address the current energy crisis confronting Ghanaians.”
Mr Sporri expressed the hope that after the completion of the project in the Ningo-Prampram District of the Greater Accra Region businesses would grow and the socio-economic standards of the people would improve.
