President Akufo-Addo has begun a three-day official visit to the Upper West Region to inspect ongoing projects and cut sod for road construction works in the region.
As part of the tour, the president is expected to have a radio interview at Radio Upper West, after which he will pay a courtesy call on the Wa-Na on Monday (22 August).
He will proceed to inspect ongoing work on phase II of the Wa Youth Resource Centre in the Wa Central Constituency.
Following a courtesy call on the Nandom Na, President Akufo-Addo will leave Wa for Lambussie to inspect the Agenda 111 Project before traveling to Nandom to cut sod for the dualisation of the town’s roads.
After arriving in the region on Sunday, the President addressed the security chiefs of Wa and urged the region’s various security agencies to cooperate in order to maintain national security.
“You are the very frontline of that activity, you have to see yourselves in that way cooperating amongst yourselves. The armed forces by themselves cannot work without the assistance of the immigration. Immigration cannot work without the assistance of the police. The interlocking duties and functions that all of you have to understand,” Akufo-Addo said.
He charged the various security agencies in the region to work collectively to safeguard the peace of the country.
“There’s a need for everybody from their various angles to come together to work together to make sure that we succeed in our main task of protecting the peace and the security of the people of Ghana.”
