Accra, Sept. 13, GNA – A Deputy Chief
Executive Officer of the Ghana Export Promotion Authority, Mr Akilu Sayibu, has
appealed to the media in Dagbon to help market the Northern Region as a place
worthy of investors and investment.

Speaking to the media in Tamale during the
launch of “The Dagbon Peace and Progress Now,” Mr Sayibu hailed the
effort of the Northern Regional Coordinating Council, the Peace Council of
Ghana and other stakeholders for organising the programme.

He said it was fully positive and in the right
direction and must be sustained.

The Deputy CEO stated that Dagombas must be
seen as united and ready for the needed development and progress of the area.

Mr Sayibu added that, investors were ready to
invest in several sectors of the Northern economy but wanted to be sure of
lasting and permanent peace in the area to safeguard whatever investment they
intended to bring to the area.

“Let us be each other’s keeper. Let us
understand that we are all Dagombas who must be proud of our identity and not
engage in acts that can retard our progress as a people,” he admonished.

It must be recalled that the Dagbon area of
Northern Ghana has been engulfed in chieftancy conflict following the events of
March 2002 which led to the death of the Ya naa and others in Yendi.

There is a renewed interest in working to find
lasting solution to the Dagbon crisis and the launch of the “Dagbon Peace
and Progress Now” is one of such efforts.
