Better Ghana Agenda For All


The Upper East Regional Minister, Alhaji Limuna Mohammed-Muniru on Monday said his administration was working tirelessly towards a cohesive and well coordinated development agenda for the region.

He indicated that the new approach was in pursuant of the government agenda to bring the needed development to the people in consonance with the party?s manifesto and as part of the ?Better Ghana Agenda? for all.

The Minister said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency on his development plans for the region in 2014.

Alhaji Mohammed-Muniru noted that it had become extremely necessary to refocus and redirect the approach to development and development planning, saying that, he was particularly concerned about conflicts, especially between Chief Executives and Members of Parliament.

He said every development must be geared towards the welfare of the people, hence the need to bring stakeholders together for a coordinated development plan.

He said the various assemblies would be urged to table their development priorities and work closely with other development partners, especially Non Governmental Organization to avoid duplications of projects and programmes and for the management of resources.

These he indicated, would be fully coordinated by the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) to ensure that the assemblies work to specifications of all projects and meet deadlines.

Alhaji Mohammed-Muniru said to pursue such an agenda; there was the need for all institutions, groups and individuals in the area to cooperate with his outfit.

The Minister mentioned health, road networks, food security and education as key to government development plans and said the assemblies would be encouraged to plan their priority projects in those sectors.

Mr Daniel Syme, Upper East Deputy Minister, who was with the Minister lauded the people for conducting themselves peacefully during the yuletide and urged them to maintain the peace.
