The chief stressed that education was the third pillar and very crucial after health and food, hence the call to speed up it’s autonomy.

He thanked the President for his plans to grant autonomy to the UDS in Navrongo, and prayed that the decision should be made a reality.

The Paramount chief stated that his traditional council would support the development of the university, saying that, “My traditional council has lands in Gaane, in the Kologo traditional area, whilst lands near Pungu, Navio and Manyoro would be made available for the development of the university”.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
