NPP group lauds appointment of Salifu Saeed as Northern Regional Minister


A pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) Forum has lauded the appointment of Salifu Saeed as the Northern Regional Minister.

The Forum which is made up of 31 NPP constituency Youth Organisers say this is the first time an appointment of a Regional Minister has been done with no controversy.

They described Mr Saeed as a “true party man” who they said understands the terrain and dynamics of the party in the Region.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday announced his ministerial nominees for the ten regions.

The Constituency Youth Organisers Forum of the New Patriotic Party at a meeting received the news with wield cheers commending the president Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo for making a good choice for the region.

They described Mr. Saeed as a true party man who understands the terrain and dynamics of the party in the region.

They include Sulemana Alhassan for the Upper West, Kwaku Asoma-Cheremeh for Brong Ahafo, Rockson Bukari for Upper East, and Dr. Kwaku Afriyie for Western Region.

The others are Eric Kwakye Darfour for Eastern Region, Salifu Sawed for Northern Region and Dr, Archibald Letsa for the Volta Region.

The Forum which represents the mouth piece of the NPP youth in the region said it received the announcement of the Northern Regional with pride.

The Youth organisers for Tamale South, Tamale North, Karaga, Salaga, Kumbungu and Yapie Kusugu pledged their support for the incoming minister to develop the region.

In a related Development the Gmantambo NPP Youth Wing commended President Akufo-Addo for appointing two illustrious sons from the Nanumba land to serve in his government.

The group said the nomination of Dominic Nitiwul as Defence Minister-designate and Salifu Saeed as Northern Regional Minister-designate is an honour to the people of the area.

A statement signed by the secretary of the group Muniru Abdul Latif said “Nanung has produced a lot of great people like Dr Mohammed Ibn Chambers, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Alhaji T.B Damba and the Late Alhaji Iddi Saani who have served the country Ghana in various capacities.”

It argued that the last time such an honour was done to the people of Nanung was during Dr Hilla Limann government who appointed Mahama Abdulai as Northern Regional Minister.

“Dr Ibn Chambers was also appointed Deputy Foreign Minister under the erstwhile Former President Jerry John Rawlings led NDC government,” the group added.

It pledges support for the two to succeed.

The Gmantambo NPP youth wing Tamale appealed to the President to consider upgrading the Nanumba North District into a municipality since their number surpasses what is stated in the local government act 1993 act 462.
