The Overlord of Mamprugu, the Nayiri, Naa Bohogu Mahami Abdulai Sheriga, has applauded President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for seeing to the construction and completion of several projects which had been on the wish list of the chiefs and people of Mamprugu for many years.
According to the Nayiri, the impact of the work undertaken by the President’s administration has been felt by the entire country, especially the people of the North East Region.
Naa Abdulai Sheriga made this known last Tuesday, when the President paid a courtesy call on him at his palace as part of his two-day tour of the North East Region.
Citing example of projects, the Mamprugu Overlord mentioned several town water projects across the North East Region, the asphalting of the Nalerigu, Gambaga and Walewale town roads, as well as the ongoing construction of the Wulugu-Kpasenkpe road.
Others are the Nasia-Kparigu road, the Nalerigu-Bunkpurugu road, the Nalerigu-Gbintiri road and Gbintiri-Chereponi road.
“The above-mentioned projects that are being witnessed have been on the request list of Mamprugu for years but eluded us, and, undoubtedly, passed on from government to government. Certainly, we owe you tons of gratitude,” the Nayiri told the President.
The Nayiri also expressed gratitude to President Akufo-Addo for the Pwalugu Multi-Purpose Dam and Irrigation project, which he described as the “Super Game Changer Project in the North”.
He said the project would result in the provision of electricity and 25,000 hectares of irrigation facilities.
“The dam, I also understand, will serve as a receptacle to collect all water upstream which has been the source of the region's perennial flooding,” he added.
Touching on the pro-poor policies implemented by the government since 2017, he said the free Senior High School policy, Planting for Food and Jobs, One-constituency-One Ambulance, the expansion of the National School Feeding Programme and the Nation Builders Corps were “well thought-out and targeted policies that are aimed at reducing poverty. Ours is a young region in which these policies perfectly fit.”
