Executives of the New Patriotic Party in the Salaga North Constituency have expressed concern about the neglect of the Constituency by the New Patriotic Party government.
The executives said since the creation of the Salaga North constituency little has been done by governments to improve the development of the area. Created in 2012 by the National Democratic Congress government, the Salaga district lacks basic amenities like water, schools, clinic electricity among others.
Addressing a press conference in Tamale, the Constituency Deputy Secretary Tahiru Fuseini said resources meant for the Salaga District have always been channelled to the Salaga South to the neglect of the Salaga North even though the two constituencies share the same district.
He cited key government positions like the District Chief Executive positions going to the Salaga South, 12 out of the 15 government appointees coming from the south, presiding officer also from the south and the Managing director of the Ghana Water Company coming from the south.
Mr Fuseini added that since the creation of the Salaga North District, nine DCEs have been appointed and out of the nine only one came from the Salaga North and that was even on the ticket of the NDC.

The party hierarchy in the constituency appealed to the president Nana Akufo Addo and the national leadership to help address the challenges facing the area adding that they believe if these issues are addressed the NPP is capable of winning the seat in the next election.
