“Some came to ask for the product together with their partners, while others too came alone,” one shop owner who pleaded anonymity told otecnews, stating that it was his wish that National programmes would regularly schedule in Tamale to enable the residents to cash in.

Every hotel, guest house and accommodation facility in the municipality was full to capacity.
