Retain Mahama : U/W Regional House of Chiefs President

chiriThe outgoing president of the Upper West Regional House of Chiefs, Naa Dr Charles Puo-Uree Chiiri, has reiterated his stance on the need for Ghanaians to give President John Mahama a second term.

He explained that in advanced democracies when a government is seen to be doing well it is retained by the people.

He made the statement when the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah paid a courtesy call on members of the Nandom Traditional Council at Nandom.


“If something does well, more of that thing must be retained to do better and I don’t see why we should be doubting,’’ he said.


This is the second time Naa Dr Puo-Uree Chiiri, who is also the paramount chief of Nandom has made the appeal.


The first was in July when President John Mahama visited the region during his accounting to the people tour.


He conceded that the traditional area has some challenges relating to their road network but was of the opinion that if the President is given another term he would fix them.


Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah thanked the chiefs for the confidence reposed in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and promised the ruling party would not let them down.


He said the NDC party launched its manifesto last Saturday and as a mark of respect, he has been sent by the President to inform them about some of the items contained in it.


The Chief of Staff later paid a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief of Lawra, Naa Puowelle Karbo.


Naa Puowelle Karbo urged Ghanaians, especially the youth, to desist from drawing chiefs unnecessarily into their political discourse.


‘‘It is common here, some of them will say this man is from the chief’s house and the chief is this or that. When you start that way that is where the trouble will start.


Mr. Debrah assured the Lawra paramount chief that even though they have finished the major road from Wa to Babile and Lawra, they would not rest on their oars as they would ensure that the district gets its fair share of the national cake.
