“North East Region Borne Out Of Your Visionary, Sterling Leadership” Nayiri to President

The Overlord of Mamprugu, the Nayiri, Naa Bohugu Abdulai Mahami Sheriga, has expressed gratitude to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for the creation of the North East Region.

The Nayiri said, North East Region, “borne out of the visionary and sterling leadership of the President, is a precious gift to them” and that they were grateful to him for making "your word your bond.”

Naa Bohugu Abdulai Mahami Sheriga expressed his gratitude to the government when a durbar of chiefs and people of Nalerigu was held in honour of President Akufo-Addo, on Thursday, May 16, 2019.  

The Nayiri was grateful, also, for the construction of Janga-Nasia-Kparigu road, as well as similar on-going works at Walewale, Gambaga and Nalerigu township, adding, “I am happy with the progress of work so far.”

He pleaded, however, with the government to extend the road construction work to Bunkpurugu and Chereponi.

On his part, President Akufo-Addo said his government would ensure that development projects were not concentrated at the regional capital, but that “we are going to spread the regional facilities all through the region so that every aspect of the region feels part of the new development that is taking place.”

He appealed to residents of North East Region to focus on building a new and great region with a single, and undivided objective.

Future generations, President Akufo-Addo said, would look back and remember that "it was the reign of Naa Bohogu Mahami Abdulai Sheriga and Nana Akufo Addo, as President, that the North East Region was created and became a great region.”

The President, subsequently, commissioned the Sakogu Community Day Senior High School and interacted with students of the Nakpanduri Senior High School where he also commissioned a 120-bed capacity dormitory.

He also presented eight vehicles, comprising three Nissan Patrol SUVs and five pickup vehicles to the North East Regional Co-ordinating Council to facilitate their work.

At Bunkpurugu, President Akufo-Addo inspected ongoing works on the bitumen surfacing of the 6.1 kilometre Bunkpurugu town roads. The contract was awarded on November 30, 2018, and is expected be completed in 18 months — May 29, 2020.
