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

According to the Nayiri, the North East Region was “borne out of the visionary and sterling leadership of the President”, adding that: “I wish to, once again, register our sincere gratitude to you and your government for this precious gift. Thank you for making your word your bond.”

Na Bohugu Abdulai Mahami Sheriga was addressing a durbar of chiefs and people of Nalerigu on Thursday, 16 May 2019, held in honour of President Akufo-Addo when he made this known.

In his remarks, the Overlord of Mamprugu thanked President Akufo-Addo for the award of Janga-Nasia-Kparigu road for construction, indicating that: “I am happy with the progress of work so far.”

He equally expressed his appreciation to the President for similar town road construction works going on in Walewale, Gambaga and Nalerigu. “It is my conviction that similar works will be done in Bunkpurugu, Chereponi. Thank you for the intervention in the road sector in the North East Region.”

For his part, President Akufo-Addo reiterated his commitment not to concentrate all regional institutions in the capital, explaining: “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 further appealed to residents of the North East Region to “go about the construction of this new region with a single, undivided objective: that we are going to build a great, new region.

He continued, “When people look back on what has happened, they will say that it was in the reign of Na Bohogu Mahami Abdulai Sheriga and Nana Akufo-Addo, as President, that the North East Region took off, and became a great region.”

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

He also presented 8 vehicles, comprising 3 Nissan Patrol SUVs and 5 pickup vehicles to the North East Regional Co-ordinating Council to facilitate their work.

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