The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has given an account of the principal activities being undertaken by his Government in the Western North Region in the last three and a half years of his tenure of office as President.

According to President Akufo-Addo, as part of Government’s Agenda 111, which seeks to build District Hospitals in Districts without hospitals, in the course of the next twelve (12) months, Government will construct District Hospitals in the following Districts without them in the Western North Region.

“They are Bia East, Bodi and Suaman. The hospitals will have a 100-bed capacity, fully equipped, with appropriate accommodation for medical personnel, i.e. doctors and staff,” he said.

With respect to the newly created Houses of Chiefs, and, indeed, to all the Houses of Chiefs across the country, the President assured that Government will continue to support the Chieftaincy institution so it can be strong and resilient.

“Six new office complex and bungalows would be provided the six new Regional Houses of Chiefs. Additionally, as I have said, we would strive to give to the institution the requisite support to resolve chieftaincy matters, and carry out research in the many areas of relevance to curb chieftaincy related conflicts,” he added.
