Bawumia Praised by Northern Regional House of Chiefs for Development in the Northern Region

While commending the government and the Vice President, the Ya Naa also expressed some concerns and appealed to Dr. Bawumia to push for some projects, like the Tamale and Yendi Water Supply projects, to be completed in earnest.

The Northern Regional House of Chiefs has commended President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, for numerous development projects the region has seen since their government assumed office.

Dr. Bawumia, who is also the New Patriotic Party’s Flagbearer for this year’s election, is in the Northern Region, as part of his nationwide engagements with key stakeholders, including traditional leaders.

During Dr. Bawumia’s interaction with the Northern Regional House of Chiefs as part of welcoming him to the region on Thursday, Ndan Ya-Naa Naa Abukari II, who is also President of the Northern Regional House of Chiefs, said the region appreciates the NPP government for the springing up of what he called  “monumental” development projects, as well as the support and contribution of Dr. Bawumia, to the progress of the region.
