Mr Godfred Bayon Tangu, Minister of State in charge of Transportation, on Sunday announced that a total of 207 kilometres of roads would be tarred in the Upper West Region this year. The roads include the Nadowli-Lawra-Hamile and the Jang-Tumu-Chuchuliga road, which links the region to the Upper East Region.

Mr Tangu was addressing a rally organized by the Wa Central constituency branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), at Wa on Sunday. He said "Under the NPP administration, 5,000 schools have been built through out the country out of which 450 are in the Upper West Region while the National Democratic Congress (NDC) constructed not more than ten schools in the region when it was in power."

Mr Tangu said the Region had never been developed to such a level since the Country attained Independence. He said if voters would judge all the political parties by the level of development they had bequeathed to this country, the NPP had already won the 2008 Election.

Mr Sahanun Mogtari, Ghana's Ambassador to Burkina Faso, said Professor Evans Atta Mills, NDC flag bearer, was aware that NPP had done what was expected of it in government and appealed to voters in Upper West Region to ignore the NDC because it had nothing new to offer. Concerning the "no money in pockets" cry by some people, he said no government would distribute money to people to spend without producing anything.

Mr Mogtari said "What the Government has done is to create opportunities for people to work and make money." Mr Abdul-Aziz Mohammed, Wa Municipal Chief Executive, urged NPP supporters to work hard to enable the party to win more parliamentary seats in the region.
