President Mills commended for creating 42 new districts
The chiefs and people of Tatale and Sangule Traditional areas have thanked the Northern Regional Minister, Mr. Moses Bukari Mabengba for supporting and presenting on their behalf to Government, an appeal that led to the creation of the new Tatale/Sangule districts.
The Paramount Chief of Tatale Traditional Area, Obore Gariba Yankosor II said in an address read for him when he together with his chiefs, elders and the youths of Tatale and Sangule, paid a courtesy call on the Regional Minister to express their appreciation at Tamale on Tuesday.
Obore Gariba stated that they were grateful to President John Evans Atta Mills’ Government for giving them their share of the Better Ghana agenda.
He indicated that as they continued to appreciate their gesture they believed that the creation of Tatale/Sangule districts would not only create more jobs for unemployed youths, but would also facilitate the Government’s development efforts.
On behalf of his people, Obore Gariba II pledged their unflinching support to the Government and his policies and programmes.
Obore Gariba II also noted that as peace loving citizens of the newly created Tatale/Sangule districts, they would like to assure the President and his government of their commitment to peace and security in the area.
He said they also appreciate the efforts and support of their brothers in Zabzugu and Kworli, particularly their chiefs and community leaders, who supported them in diverse ways in their effort to have the districts.
He reiterated that poverty and deprivation were their common enemies and they wished to use the occasion to encourage the spirit of love, support and peaceful co-existence to remain among their people so that together they could confront the challenges facing them.
The Paramount Chief said the creation of the district came at the time when poverty and unemployment were widening among the youth.
The Northern Regional Minister, Mr Moses Bukari Mabengba expressed his appreciation to the chiefs and the people for calling on him and reminded them of the need to live in peace with each other.
He said government had earmark GH¢1 million to support each of the 42 newly created districts.
Mr Mabengba urged them to cooperate with officials, who would carry out the demarcation exercise and advised them not to have dispute among themselves.
He reminded them that confusion over siting of district capitals was not a new thing because it had happened in previous regimes.
Mr. Mabengba indicated that the creation of the new districts was to take development to the door steps of the people.
We need jobs now
