Karaga District Is Open For Business; DCE Tells Investors


The Karaga District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr. Alhassan Yabdow has stated that the Karaga district is well placed and open for development from both government and the investor community.

This claim, he said, is backed by the fact that the Karaga district remains the only district that is not bedeviled by chieftaincy and other related conflicts. He lauded the chiefs and people of the district for maintaining peace and conducting themselves within the confines of law and order in the area.

The DCE was speaking at the first ever town hall meeting organized under the auspices of the ministry of information in collaboration with the ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, to fulfill its mandate of accounting to the people on government projects, policies and programmes so far.

The prevailing calm atmosphere, he continued, provides great opportunities for the district to develop in line with the Akuffo Addo led government’s vision of developing every district in the country.

He called on the people to continue living in peace with each other to allow the district to benefit from the huge developmental agenda of the New Patriotic Party government.

He commended the district police command and other security agencies for keeping their eyes and ears on the ground to ensure the safety of the citizenry in the area.

Mr. Yabdow asked the people to make peace a collective responsibility and allow it to reflect every facet of their lives for the transformation and development of the district.

Shedding light on completed and ongoing development projects, the DCE stated that his office under the auspices of the Akuffo Addo government is transforming and improving infrastructure in education, health, roads and social protection.

He used the occasion to appeal for calm among communities of the district as the assembly tackles their developmental challenges gradually.

Speaking on behalf of the Northern Regional Minister. Mr. Salifu Saeed, the Gushegu District Chief Executive, Mr. Issah Musah mentioned that the town hall meeting was held to assess the work of the district assemblies and to further enhance and entrench the principles of a deepening democracy and making the grass roots part of the development agenda of their respective communities in the district.

Mr. Musah underscored the need for the citizenry to acquire deeper knowledge on the structures of the assembly system.

This he said will promote better understanding of the operations of the assemblies to erase any negative perceptions and misconceptions such that confidence and trust can be restored for the prosperity of the districts.

He thanked the traditional and opinion leaders, youth leaders, civil society and religious organisations for turning out in their numbers to show their love and patriotism for the districts and communities they represent.
