Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, the Presidential Flag Bearer Aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has expressed his concerns about the lack of development in the five northern regions despite the abundant potential among the youth.

According to him, leaders, including Members of Parliament, past Vice Presidents, and Presidents alike, have been insensitive to the immense potential for growth and development in these regions.

“People like Aliu Mahama, who was Vice President, John Mahama, and others, including some MPs, if they were committed to the growth of the regions, agriculture would have been a golden opportunity for these regions and the country at large. However, these past and present leaders have failed to effectively champion and harness this potential.”

He noted that these regions offer a golden opportunity for agricultural development that could not only provide employment opportunities for the youth but also significantly contribute to the nation’s food security and economic growth.

Mr. Agyapong made these remarks during a recent interview on A1 Radio as part of his tour in the Upper East Region.

He emphasised that it is essential for the development and progress of the nation to bridge the gap between the North and South.

He further explained that leadership is always about prioritisation; hence, it will be his mandate to prioritise and invest in the five northern regions to create sustainable development, reduce poverty, and empower the youth with opportunities.

He assured his commitment to being a driving force for change in the five northern regions when given the opportunity.

To achieve this, he said he intends to work closely with local communities, leaders, and organisations to develop strategies that can unlock the untapped potential of the regions.”
