I won’t disappoint Northerners – Mahama

President John Mahama says he will not disappoint his native northerners.

“…I want to thank you again for the support you have given and to say that as a son of the north, I will never disappoint you”, President Mahama pledged when he addressed a mini-durbar of chiefs and people of Nalerigu as part of his two-day official visit to the Northern Region.

He said: “I want to thank the Nayiri for the good counsel and encouragement he has continued to give me throughout my political career and to also thank the people of Mamprugu for the support that they showed to me during the election of 2012. Indeed my performance as presidential candidate in this area was overwhelming and I want to thank all of you for the support that you gave me during the elections. I will not forget it and I will not disappoint you”, President Mahama reiterated.

President Mahama, a native of Bole-Bamboi in the Northern region, said the government will invest an excess of one billion dollars in road construction to open the country to businesses and investors.

According to him, the Walewale/Gambaga/Nalerigu road would be improved to connect the Bunkrugu and Nakpanduri stretch of the road to facilitate the movement of goods and services in the area.

He commended the Nayiri of Mamprugu for maintaining peace and unity among the ethnic groups in the area and appealed to him to extend that feat to Bawku and Dagbon to bring peace and unity to the people.
