The Dagbon Traditional Council in collaboration with the Yendi Municipal Assembly, has allocated two acres of land to the Driver Vehicle and Licensing Authority (DVLA) for the construction of an office in Yendi.
The project, when completed would serve Yendi Municipality, Zabzugu, Tatale, Gushegu, Karaga, Saboba, Mion, Kpandai, Nanumba North and Nanumba South Districts within the Eastern corridor, who hitherto had to travel to Tamale for vehicle related registration issues.
Kapamkuya Na Yakubu Abdulai Andani, Regent of Dagbon announced this in Yendi on Friday when an eight- member board of the DVLA from Accra paid a courtesy call on him at the Gbewaa Palace at Yendi.
He said the project was nurtured in 2013 after a number of consultations involving the Traditional Council, the Municipal Assembly and the Yendi Branch of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union of the Trades Union Congress and Reverend Bernard Oduro-Twum, Northern Regional Manager of DVLA.
Brigadier General Ishmael Ben Quartey, Board Chairman of DVLA said the Authority looks for well documented lands before they could build their offices to avoid litigation.
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Angwubutoge Awuni, Director of Motor Traffic and Transport Unit of Ghana Police Service, commended the Regent and the people of Yendi for the prevailing peace in the area.
He said peace had attracted a number of development projects.
ACP Awuni who is a Board Member of the DVLA appealed to the Regent to educate the youth to ensure that they celebrate the impending Damba festival peacefully to disabuse the minds of many who perceived Damba to be associated with violence.
