Upper East Regional Minister, Albert Abongo Urges Youth To Avoid Any Form Of Electoral Violence
The Upper East Regional Minister, Albert Abongo, has challenged the chiefs and people of Tongo traditional area to shun immoral activities and be disciplined.
They must co-exist to help promote peace and development and avoid any form of electoral violence.
Mr Abongo said this during the annual Golob festival.
He assured the people of government’s commitment in creating jobs especially for the youth.
That is why government has granted mining concession to people in the area to engage the youth in employment.
Mr Abongo expressed worry about the recent clashes in Bolgatanga which claimed one person’s life leaving several others injured. He described the situation as unacceptable.
Mr Abongo advised the MMDAs to take early warning signals of conflicts seriously and liaise with the Regional Co-ordinating Council to avert trouble. He said the government is working hard to improve the lives of the people and urged the MMDAs to work hard to fulfil the manifesto of the NDC.
The District Chief Executive of Talensi, Edward Awunoore, assured the chiefs and his elders of the assembly’s commitment to collaborate with the various heads of departments and work together to move the development agenda of the area forward.
