A lawyer-turned-politician named Lamtiig Apanga has suggested that more work has to be done to advance and develop the Nabdam constituency. He asserted that this should start with leadership. The Nabdam constituency has been headed for the past couple of years by a person who has become self-engrossed in both his leadership style and decision-making.

“In every community, there are skilled people who can come on board to assist development. It is not left to the individual leader alone to be the sole driver of development. If you are able to galvanise for development, you can push the district forward. We have experienced some amount of sole-proprietorship in leadership; where leadership has remained with one key person who thinks that it is him and him alone that must shoulder the development. I believe strongly that if I am able to bring a lot of Nabdams on board, Nabdams who have the expertise in development; in education, in sports, in health, together, to drive your development agenda forward, you’ll succeed.”

Lawyer Apanga said this when he spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, Friday, February 3, 2023. He was speaking about his interest in leading the NDC to the 2024 elections as Parliamentary Candidate.

To ensure that development in the area is participatory, Lawyer Apanga has suggested the establishment of committees in Nabdam to further development. 

“There should be standing committees in the district. There should be standing committees on education and youth development where we will consider formal education for those who are interested in pursuing schools and other academic work. We can also consider skill training for those who would want to acquire skills. We have a lot of young people in Nabdam who are willing to acquire skills whether plumbing, fitting, painting. Name it, anything you can think about. Sports is also a very key area in Nabdam as well. Tell me, when was the last time you heard of a footballer or any sportsperson from our side of the region? Let’s even take the Upper East Region in general. Imagine that we have a deliberate and systematic policy where we organise sporting activities for our young people within Nabdam. We would be able to discover new talents. We would be able to link them up to academies in the south,” he said. 

In the area of women’s development, Lawyer Apanga suggested the establishment of a well structured organisation that assists in training, funding, supporting and providing market opportunities for the women engaged in the weaving of smock materials. 

The ideas, according to the lawyer, are the reasons he should be considered in the upcoming parliamentary primaries for the NDC in the Nabdam constituency of the Upper East Region.
