Wa Airport

The issue surrounding the construction of Upper East Regional Airport is one of the biggest developmental challenges facing the region.

Both the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) have failed the region woefully as far as the Airport project is concerned, as they found favour in using the said project as a political tool used every election year by politicians.

However, an effort exhibited to construct the Airport by the NPP during the time of the Late Hon. Kofi Adda the former Aviation Minister, saw the region only fighting for citing location between Sherigu and Paga and Sumbrungu till the region lost that available opportunity.

In a recent interview, Regional Minister Stephen Yakubu told the media that the region has settled on Sumbrungu for the Airport construction.

However, in an engagement with Apexnewsgh on Friday, January 27, 2023, Minister Yakubu revealed that he is still fighting very hard for the airport.

“Am fighting so hard. The last time I met the President in Wa was when we went for a funeral, I saw the Wa airport, then I said to him that we can also do something like this in Upper East, even if we don’t have plenty of money to do it like the Tamale one, we can also do something like this so that plane can land. So, he is buying into that idea. So, am going to Accra this week to meet him on it”.

“We are fighting very hard to bring some of these things here. He stressed
