New N/R Minister tours region

The Northern Regional Minister, Mr Salifu Sa-eed, in an apparent move to work with key stakeholders, and all the people, is beginning a five-day tour of the region to interact with all the prominent chiefs and religious leaders.

The tour, which starts today, February 23, and ends on 27th February, 2017, will take the Minister to Yendi, Bimbilla, Nalerigu, Wulensi and Damongo to familiarise himself with the traditional authorities, religious bodies and party faithful before assuming office.

The Special Assistant to the Regional Minister, Abubakari Shani Bawumia, at a short meeting with the media in Tamale yesterday, disclosed that Salifu Sa-eed would arrive in Tamale this morning (Thursday), and would be received by party faithful at the Regional Coordinating Council to commence the familiarisation tour.

According to him, the Minister would make his first visit at the Gukpe Naa’s Palace at 11:00am, proceed to the Dakpema’s Palace, Bug-lana, Banvim-lana, Lamashegu Chief’s Palace, and end at the Sagnarigu Naa’s Palace.

The Regional Minister would continue the tour on Friday, 24th February, with a courtesy call on the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, the leadership of Ambariya, visit Sheikh Bayan, the Regional Chief Imam, the leadership of the Christian Council, and climax the day with a call on the Catholic Archbishop of Tamale.

On Saturday, the Northern Regional Minister will visit the Overlord of the Gonjaland Traditional area, Yagbonwura Tumtumba Bore Essa I, in Damongo, where he will also be meeting with party officials in the area.

Shani Bawumia added that Salifu Sa-eed on Sunday 26th of February will continue the tour to Nalerigu, where he will pay a courtesy call on the Nayiri Naa Mahami Bohagu Sherigi, Overlord of the Mumprugu Traditional Kingdom, and also meet with party officials in the area.

Mr. Shani said the final day of the tour will see the Minister visiting Yendi, with a call on the Regent of Dagbon, Kampakuyana Yakubu Andani, and Bolinlana Muhammadu Abdulai, and then proceed to Nanumba North District, Bimbila and Wulensi for similar visits to the traditional authorities to end the tour.

Meanwhile, Mr. Sa-eed Salifu is expected to unite the region, serve as father for all, ensure law and order, and ultimately ensure the implementation of the policies and programmes of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.

The Minister’s Aide, therefore, appealed to party youth in the earmarked districts to welcome the Minister in a very decorous manner.
