The Chief of Yorogo, Naba Kosomo Lebge Serum-Tinganbila-Lebge Goo, has appealed to the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly to consider improving social infrastructure for the people of Yorogo through the government’s SOCO.

“Let me appeal to the assembly to extend the streetlights to Yorogo. We have also heard about the SOCO project and would like to remind the assembly that Yorogo faces challenges with school infrastructure, CHIPS Compounds, roads, and difficulties with access to water for some sections, which should be considered,” he said.

The Gulf of Guinea Northern Regions Social Cohesion Project (SOCO) was instituted to contribute to the prevention of conflict spillover from the Sahelian countries by improving the social and economic resilience of the targeted Northern Regions in the Gulf of Guinea countries (Ghana, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, and Togo).

In Ghana, the SOCO Project is being implemented in six (6) regions in the northern parts of Ghana, namely the Northern, Upper East, Upper West, North East, Savannah, and Oti Regions. Forty-eight (48) MMDAs are benefiting from the project.

In the Upper East Region, all 15 districts and municipalities have been captured under the project.

Speaking at the Tigsitaaba festival, Chief of Yorogo, Naba Kosomo Lebge Serum-Tinganbila-Lebge Goo commended the Ghana Police Service for improved service in the area. The Chief also appealed for support for the community-initiated library complex being put up.

“I would also like to commend the Ghana Police Service for the improved security along the Yorogo stretch of the Bolga-Bongo Road. The Hon. MCE for Bolgatanga, the people of Yorogo are building a library complex and will be glad to have the assembly intervene to complete the structure through the SOCO project,” he said.

The people of Yorogo in the Upper East Region celebrated the 5th edition of the Tigsitaaba festival amidst drumming, dancing, and a colorful display of the culture and traditions of the area.

Tigsitaaba is a festival celebrated by the eight clans of Yorogo to drive development and unity.

The eight clans are Atiabiisi, Abangabiisi, Kunkua, Gaabiisi, Bulgo, Apukobiisi, Abugrebiisi, and Asorogobiisi. This year’s Tigsitaaba was held at Asorogobiisi under the theme, “Promoting Peaceful Coexistence and Development: the Role of Festivals.”
