Government to rehabilitate Vea Irrigation Canals and Laterals


Mark Woyongo NBolgatanga, Jan 15, GNA – Government has pledged to rehabilitate the Vea Irrigation Canals and Laterals, which have not seen any major repairs since it was constructed in the 1970s.

     The Upper East Regional Minister, Mr Mark Woyongo gave the assurance when members of the Bongo Amalezale Cooperative Farmers Society (BONACOFSO), a farming cooperative society, presented a petition to him at the weekend on the need to rehabilitate the project.

     According to the farmers the canals and laterals were aged and most of them broken down and that when water was discharged from the dam it does not get to the farms.
