The Konkomba Students Union (KONSU) of the Mamprugu area in the Northern Region has asked the traditional leaders, stakeholders and the youth to remain calm as the president and his able minister’s work on selecting a suitable place as the capital for the North East Region.
 
According to them three communities namely; Nalerigu, Gambaga and Walewale have expressed keen interest for the North East Regional capital.

In a statement, they said any of these three communities has gotten what it takes to be made regional capital of the North East Region.

Read full statement below;

The executives of Konkomba Students Union (KONSU) on behalf of the entire membership of the union wish to thank the Government for accepting the request for the creation of the North East Region and for creating an enabling environment for the regional creation processes to come this far.

We specifically thank the minister for Local Government and Rural Development, Hon. Hajia Alima Mahama, Minister for Regional Reorganization and development, Daniel Kweku Botwe for the good job done. The efforts of all the stakeholders in the entire process are highly appreciated.

We are encouraging all the traditional leaders, other stakeholders and the youth to remain calm while the president and his able ministers work on selecting a suitable community as the capital for the North East Region. Three communities namely; Nalerigu, Gambaga and Walewale have expressed keen interest for the North East Regional capital.

Any of these three communities has gotten what it takes to be made regional capital of the North East Region. But notwithstanding the fact, when any of them is named as the regional capital, all the people should accept the outcome for the shake of peace and development.

We are one people under one kingdom even though we are made up of different tribes such as; Konkombas, Mamprusi, Bimobas and Chakosis serving as the major tribes, we are still one people with personal responsibilities to promoting peace which will give room for massive development in the region.

We also want to take this opportunity to remind the president, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and his able ministers and the electoral commission about the petition submitted to the presidency through the Northern regional minister and other concern offices in December 2018 from Gbintiri Chief Palace seeking for Gbintiri to be carved out of the East Mamprusi Municipal Assembly as a constituency head/District capital in other to promote the policy of decentralization and equal development in the country.

Due to the stupendous nature of the East Mamprusi Municipality, Gbintiri and its surrounding communities are deprived of myriad developmental projects including lack of potable drinking water, lack of health facilities, poor road network and many others. 

It is sad to note that Gbintiri market is the largest in the municipality which generates the highest revenue to the municipal Assembly yet there is no potable drinking water for the people in the community. Highly inadequate educational facilities, poor road network and absent of health facilities is the major challenge in the area.

We believe that carving Gbintiri out of the East Mamprusi Municipality as a district/constituency is a better way of bringing development to the doorstep of Gbintiri and its surrounding communities.

Long live KONSU, long live North East Region and long live mother Ghana.
