Upper West Regional Minister, Dr. Bin Salih Hafiz


Leader of Upper West Regional Coordinating Council, Dr. Hafiz Bin Salih has stated that the Upper West Region was not solely carved and converted into an independent Region by late Former President, Flt. Leutenant Jerry John Rawlings, in an interview he granted on Him Radio, Friday 13th January 2023, the Minister spoke in defense of his party, the New Patriotic Party’s Achievements in the Past 50 years.

“….It’s clear Flt. Leutenant Jerry John Rawlings Signed for the Region, Upper West to be created on Document but before that, some people laid the foundation for it to be created, all these long buildings you see today around my office and all where I use as my office were built before this region was created, this means plans were far established before Flt. Leutenant JJ Rawlings created the Region, Nurses Quarters, Low-cost quarters, Wa Sports stadium were all in place before this Region was created, this means Development is a continuous process..”

Upper West Region was carved out of Upper Region in 1983 paving way for two new Regions to be created namely Upper West Region and Upper East Region.

The Late Flt. Leutenant Jerry John Rawlings Passed on in November 2020, few days to the General Elections.
