Akufo-Addo took the president on during a speech at the Bolgatanga Traditional Council on the 2nd day of his tour of the Upper East Region.

“SADA has been a monumental failure. It has been a vehicle for public money going down the drain. Money that should have been used to establish the basis of a performing agricultural sector in the North has gone into people’s pockets,” he said.

“Today, the President can tour the 3 regions of the North and cannot mention SADA – an initiative which he says is his baby. He cannot mention SADA anymore because it has become a big failure."

Akufo-Addo pledged to replace SADA with Northern Development Fund (NoDA) in a bid bridge the developmental gap between the North and the South.

"We are going to re-establish the NoDA and pay attention to the infrastructural deficit in the North,” he reassured.
