President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has described Ghanaians as ‘lucky’ to have him in charge since he’s a listening leader who works on bringing the people’s desires to fruition.
Nana Addo speaking during a leg of his tour of the Upper West and Savannah Regions expressed shock at the opposition National Democratic Congress for neglecting the North for so long despite the area consistently voting for them.
According to him, he would make sure to address the concerns of the North because he’s a listening leader.
“One of the things that surprise me and I have to confess, we have to speak the truth to each other; that Yapei – Kusawgu since 1992, I have known two people who have been Members of Parliament, the first one was my very good friend Amadu Seidu, when he left, the elder brother who is an excellent young man who is a minister for Natural Resources and MP for Damango, Abu Jinapor his elder brother John then took over the MP for Yapei – Kusawgu”. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo told Chiefs and people of Yapei – Kusawgu.
“What this tells me is that the 8 elections conducted in Ghana since 1992 have always gone to the National Democratic Congress and yet when I come here, I hear all of these demands. The young man who for a long time was Deputy Minister of power, 17 communities in his district still have not been connected to electricity grid”, he added.
Responding to the request of the Yagbonwura for some developmental projects, the President said: “…Yagbonwura, you are lucky, you have me as the President of Ghana. I’m going to do it for you. In the same way, no secondary school, no Senior Technical School, in the whole of Kusawgu area, ahhh, eiiiiiii.
“Yagbonwura I’m not here in a campaign, but I think I have said enough for you and your people Kusawgu to think about your vote in 2024”, he added.
