The Bawku Naba, Asigri Abugrago Azoka II, has thanked the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for the projects being undertaken to improve the standard of living of the people of Bawku, in the Upper East Region.
Delivering his address when President Akufo-Addo paid a courtesy call on him on Tuesday, 13th August, 2019, as part of the latter’s working visit to the Upper East Region, the Bawku Naba stated that “we are currently witnessing other roads and dam projects that your government is adding to them at various places in the traditional area.”
He further told President Akufo-Addo that “we are grateful for the construction of the dams in this municipality.
More of these dams are needed in the traditional area as a way of not only creating jobs for our rural people but also curtailing the constant North-South migration of the youth.”
Touching on the political appointments from his area made by President Akufo-Addo, which include Deputy Ministers of State, two Ambassadors, and one Council of State, the Bawku Naba singled out the Chief Executive Officer of the National Food and Buffer Stock Programme, Hanan Abdul Wahab, for praise, describing his appointment as an inspired one.
The Bawku Naba appealed to President Akufo-Addo to consider a petition for the “renaming of the Bawku Senior High School, to avoid the confusion with Bawku Technical Senior High School, over which resource allocation is often a mix up.”
Naba Asigri Abugrago Azoka II assured President Akufo-Addo that they will continue to work at fostering peace within the area.
