What next for SADA

Until recently, the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) was an infamous spectacle of how bad management of public institutions can cost a nation and the citizenry.

Established in 2010 as a vehicle for the transformation of the savannah zone, SADA was pridedby the late Prof. Atta Mills' administration as the boldest and, possibly, the final initiative by a government to meet the development aspirations of that segment of the country.

But after two years of existence, with a seed fund of GH¢100 million at its beck and call, poor resource allocation and disregard to best practices in the corporate practices soon marred the good intentions that accompanied its establishment.

Fortunately, however, the institution has reformed itself over the past two years much to theadmiration of its partners.
