Mamprugu youth urged to support Dr Bawumia to become president


The Mamprugu Zaabuni Youth for Development, a pressure organization in the Mamprugu Traditional Area, has proclaimed its support for Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in the presidential election on December 7.

Musah Abdul-Basit, the group’s President, made the declaration on Sunday at the group’s congress in Walewale, North East Region, urging the youth to work hard to guarantee that Dr Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, wins the elections.


Abdul-Basit said: “We urge the youth of Mamprugu to massively support one of our own to be President no matter the political colourations.”

“Insha Allah, if we have such an opportunity coming from another political party in the future, Zaabuni shall not shy away but give him/her the maximum support to be President of Ghana.”

The congress aimed to assess the area’s progress and continue to advocate for improved possibilities.

The subject was “Rekindling the Glory of Mamprugu: Our Collective Responsibility.”

Abdul-Basit emphasized Dr Bawumia’s imprint on Mamprugu, saying the youth will fight hard to guarantee he won the election and made history for the area.

He noted the expansion of power to most settlements and the development of recreational facilities as some of the government’s achievements in the area, stating, “Mamprugu Traditional Area is very happy for having a region of its own.”

Within its first eight years, the organization had paid some residents’ medical costs and school fees, as well as secured a huge plot of land on which to develop an educational institution, he added.

Abdul-Basit asked the young to contribute to the restoration of wealth and the promotion of peace in order to foster development and possibilities for growth.

He advocated for the construction of a bridge that would connect Arigu to the Shilinga village via the Mamprugu mainland.

Vice President Bawumia, the congress’s Special Guest, mentioned the STEM Senior High School at Kpasenkpe, the Fire Service Training School at Wungu, and the ongoing construction of the Walewale, Nalerigu, and Gambaga town roads as examples of government intervention.

He stated that efforts had been made to build the Misio Bridge for ease of traffic and that the Agenda 111 hospital project benefited all districts in the region.

He gave the organization GHc200,000.00 to boost its activities and help kids in the region.

Meanwhile, the organization provided footballs, trophies, and money to some football clubs in the area to support their operations.
