Naab Bohagu Samuel Namoog, Chief of Kotintaabig in the Sakoti Traditional area in the Upper East Region, has called on the government and its partners to look beyond placing development projects solely in regional capitals.

The chief voiced concerns over the challenges associated with accessing suitable space for project development in already congested regional capitals, ultimately hindering the progress of the entire region.

He stressed that the current state of regional capitals, often characterized by crowding, poses significant challenges in securing the necessary land for essential projects. This, he believes, results in the deprivation of the region’s overall development potential.

Speaking on A1 Radio’s Daybreak Upper East Show, Chief Namoog urged residents to also play an active role in releasing lands for development purposes.

He emphasized that without the cooperation of the local community, the region stands to lose out on numerous developmental projects, as the inability to secure land for government projects has become a critical bottleneck in the advancement of the region.

The Chief’s appeal came to light when the Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu, at the 13th biennial delegates congress of BONABOTO, bemoaned the difficulties that the government faced in securing lands in the regional capital for development projects.

At the function, the Minister indicated that families and landowners often demand outrageous compensation packages from the government before releasing lands for development.

Naab Namoog, however, underscored the importance of residents recognizing the broader benefits that such projects could bring to the community, including improved infrastructure, economic opportunities, and an overall enhancement of the quality of life.
