The Paramount Chief of the Bongo Traditional Area in the Upper East Region, Naba Baba Salifu Aleemyaarum, has stated that his traditional council is prepared to give out lands to genuine investors who would want to invest in the area.

The Paramount Chief said apart from investors, the Traditional Council was also prepared to give out lands to genuine development partners who would want land to undertake viable ventures in the area.

Naba Aleemyaarum said the traditional council would soon release land demanded by Readwide Ghana Limited and its development team, made up of Youth Icon Ghana and a Ghanaian Musician, Bice Osei Kuffour popularly known as Obour to build a library complex for Bongo District.

The Paramount Chief therefore asked investors and others who want to explore the area to undertake development programmes that would benefit the District not to hesitate to consult the traditional Council, adding that Bongo was a peaceful area and suitable for development.

He stressed that as chiefs they owed a civic responsibility to contribute their quota to national development by collaborating with the Government to bring about development.

He indicated that his jurisdiction was undertaking a number of development activities including tree planting in sixteen communities, curbing of bad traditional practices including widowhood rites and elopement.

Naba Aleemeyaarum commended the Readwide Limited and its team for their intention to build a library complex in Bongo District for school children.

The team explained that they decided to embark upon the programme so as to encourage the youth to read and improve their standard in Education.

They noted that reading was one of the greatest assets a child could have to succeed in School and beyond and indicated that access to collection of books was a crucial educational tool yet many Ghanaian children did not have the opportunity.

They indicated that the campaign sought to use Obour's, positive image as ambassador for the campaign which would be taken to all the regions in Ghana.

Readwide Ghana seeks to provide long term consistent commitment and inculcate the habit of reading into children both in the classroom and at home.

The project, the organizers noted, would be carried out in the most deprived areas in the ten regions where there were no libraries. Reading Clubs made up of youth would also be formed in schools in those areas.
