NPP and NDC supporters
On failing to honor promises to the people in the region, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government has been blamed by the Upper East Regional Secretariat of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The NPP party said that as part of the ‘Accounting to the People Tour’ President John Mahama’s failure to visit the region from June 6-8, 2016 was due to keep himself away from embarrassment because of neglecting the region under his government.
Mr Mohammed Ibrahim Murtala, the Upper East Regional Chairman of the NPP, purported in a press conference in Bolgatanga that President John Mahama’s scheduled tour was later delayed for an indefinite period and it was due to not having for inauguration.
Mr Murtala examined that it should be noted that during the seven-and-a-half year rule of the NDC government, no major development project has been seen in the Upper East Region.
A road project in which a promise to build a road which connected two major commercial cities in the region has not been completed, he pointed out.
The regional chairman said that he also promised to construct a new regional hospital for the region and he did not fulfilled.
Mr. Murtala also stated that he also promised to revamp the Pwalugu Tomato and Zuarungu Meat factories and the construction of the Bolgatanga Sports Complex, the Bolgatanga airstrip and the Bolgatanga Polyclinic but he failed to develop the region.
Additionally, Mr Murtala noted that the failure of the Mahama-led administration to complete a single senior high school in the region as part of his 200 community day SHS projects for the entire country was worrying.
