The President of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will be in the Upper West Region Beginning 21st of August 2022.
Some Selected Constituencies he will be visiting Include Nandom, Lambussie, Dafiama-Busie-Issa Constituency and Wa West Constituency.
Lambussie Constituency’s Seat is Occupied by a Member of Parliament for the New Patriotic Party, Dr. Bright Baligi, the Seat of Nandom is Occupied a Member of Parliament on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The Seat of Sissala East was secured for the New Patriotic Party by current Deputy Minister for Water Resources and Sanitation, Mr. Amidu Chinnia.
Several Residents have called for the President to Visit the Sissala East in order to assess their roads and find lasting solutions to them.
The President will however not be travelling to Sissala East based on the itinerary covering the president’s tour.
The Member of Parliament had also revealed in an interview at Home Radio on the 29th of June 2022, that some ‘big men’ in the region are trying to sabotage his political career. Could this be the reason his Constituency has been sidelined.
“I have observed something, there is a senior member of this party within the Region who wants to destroy every potential young person of the NPP in the Upper West Region, Karbos defeat was not ordinary, there were underground dealings, we are in the party, we all know what is going on, there is a senior member of the party from this region who things that his name must be only name in npp in upper west, he doesn’t want any young person to grow, and I have sited Karbos example, two months ago, Alloys, who is the deputy CEO for Social investment fund, he has been sacked, go and check what are the reasons, a young man from this region has been sacked as a deputy CEO has been sacked what is the guarantee that they will go and put another Upper Westner there? When he was there probably he was also helping people from Upper West, that opportununity has been denied, it has been orchestrated, that young man somebody wants to block him from growing.”
