Let me take the opportunity to call on all investors home and abroad to come to Dagbon and invest. They can invest in solar energy, mining, agriculture, animal husbandry, tourism, building industry and smock manufacturing.”

The Ya Na added that: “Under my reign, education, food security, better economic development, environmental security and peacebuilding will be paramount. We will partner with the international community, the government of Ghana and other development agencies to accelerate peace and development in Dagbon and Northern region. I shall also count on corporate institutions and business communities in Ghana to facilitate this work.”
