Bolgatanga, June 3,
GNA – Mr Rockson Ayine Bukari, the Upper East Regional Minister, has
appealed to senior citizens to support the Government in steering the
affairs of the region and the country as a whole.

He said the nation
could be well developed if senior citizens brought their rich experiences to
bear by offering advice and technical support to the implementation of some of
government interventions and programmes.

Mr Bukari made the
call at a reception by the Regional Coordinating Council in honour of senior
citizens as part of this year’s Republic Day celebration.

It was to acknowledge
the contributions of the Senior Citizens to national development.

He said areas they
could advise government on was its plans and policies as well as the broad
concepts of implementing swift social interventions such as the “One Village
One dam,” One District One Factory,” and the allocation of one million dollar
project to each constituency.

Whilst commending the
Senior Citizens for their immense contributions to the country’s independence
struggle, the Minister entreated them to help bring up the youth to be more
responsible to enable them to contribute their quota to national
development.

The Senior Citizens
gave the assurance that they would share their experiences and expertise
once government deemed it necessary to use them to rekindle development,
especially to accelerate growth of the region.
