President Akufo-Addo has chosen Damango as the capital of the newly created Savannah Region.

The President made the announcement at a ceremony Tuesday at the Jubilee House to present the Constitutional Instrument backing the creation of the region.

“You will not be far from wrong if you described the Savannah Region as the latest developed part of the Northern Region. The irony in all of this is that the Savannah Region is blessed with an abundance of natural resources,” Akufo-Addo said.

“Onus is now on the government to put into motion the processes for the rapid development of the Savannah Region,” he added.
