. The
Upper West Regional Minister, Mr Sulemana Alhassan, has urged retirees to be
forthcoming with contributions, suggestions and observations on current
government policies and programmes.

“You should always
feel free to come forward with your suggestions on topical issues especially
those that impact on our lives directly such as illegal mining activities,
sanitation and security in the region and the country as a whole”, he said.

He urged the retirees
to always set the agenda for policy makers by contributing to effective policy
formulation and implementation in the country.

Mr Alhassan was
addressing “senior citizens” at this year’s Republic Day celebrations held in
Wa to honour the retirees who contributed relentlessly towards the development
of the country.

He said even though
they were not in active service, most of them were still playing active roles
in the communities’ development, and contributing very meaningfully and
pragmatic ideas towards their advancement.

The Regional Minister
said regular interactions and free flow of information between public office
holders and retirees would bring immense benefits to the region.

Mr Issahaku Tahiru
Moomen, Wa Municipal Chief Executive encouraged the retirees to bring their
expertise to bare in district chief executives in the various districts in the
region to develop appropriate development plans to meet the aspirations of the
people.

He urged them to give
pieces of advice to the chief executives, irrespective of their political
affiliations to improve development and sustain livelihoods.

The Wa Municipal
Assembly organised the Day and 25 distinguished retirees who contributed
immensely to the development of the region were awarded.
