The Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu, has publicly criticized BONABOTO, a non-partisan association of citizens from Bolgatanga, Nangodi, Bongo, Tongo, Zuarungu, and surrounding areas, for what he deemed to be persistent demands for specific positions to be occupied by individuals from the above areas.

The minister said, outside of BONABOTO, the people of the Upper East region are noted to have always demanded that certain positions in the region be occupied by natives of the region.

 During the 13th Binniel Delegates Congress of BONABOTO held at the Gbeogo School for the Deaf in the Talensi district, the minister, Stephen Yakubu, did not mince words as he addressed BONABOTO’s perceived influence on the distribution of key positions within the region.

“The tendency for the BONABOTO and people of the Upper East Region to always insist that their people occupy certain positions does not auger well for regional integration and cohesion.”

The minister expressed his concerns, stating that the association’s insistence and, on that part, the people of the region’s participation in particular appointments could hinder the broader goal of inclusivity and cohesion.

“As we all know, we equally have our people working for other regions in the same capacities,” he stated.

Mr. Yakubu entreated members of BONABOTO to see the association as a collaborating partner with other blocks and associations in the region in order to serve as a catalyst for the development of the entire region.
