The Head of the Upper East Regional House of Chiefs, Naba Olando Ayamga Awuni III, who is also Paramount Chief of Naaga Traditional Area, states the decision taken by President Akufo-Addo to seek for a second term in office is proper as well as will be granted by the electorate.

Naba Olando Ayamga Awuni III said “seeking for a 2nd term is appropriate and it shall be granted by your performance, and that will ensure victory for you.”

The President of the house was speaking on Thursday, 8th October 2020, when President Akufo-Addo was invited to address a session of the House, as part of his two-day visit of the Upper East Region.

Delighted by the development projects embarked on by the President throughout the last three and a half years, Naba Awuni III mentioned that “notable amongst the prominent projects are the Bolgatanga-Bawku-Polimakom road under construction, the Pwalugu Multi-Purpose Dam, and the provision of ambulance service to all constituencies across the region.”

Whilst recognizing other projects like educational facilities, agricultural improvement, and other social intervention policies, the Chief recalled that, in 2017 Nana Akufo-Addo paid a courtesy call the Upper East Regional House of Chiefs where some demands were made.

” We are, therefore, grateful to know that those demands have been met. Your Excellency, the Ghanaian constitution debars us from taking part in active party politics” he said.

With two months to the holding of the December political elections, the Upper East Regional House of Chiefs called government to ensure that there is peace before, during after the elections.
