“We have heard with profound happiness and joy the bold move by His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo –Addo, following his appointment of our beloved brother, leader, mentor and associate, Boniface Abubakari, to head a newly created ministry in the interest of all, but more beneficial to Zongo as a whole.”
This was contained in a media release signed by Alhaji Inusah Sittu Damballe IV, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra.
