President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has reassured the Paramount Chief of the Bawku Traditional Area, Naba Asigri Abuagrago Azoka II, that he does not have an interest in any chieftaincy issue across the country, especially in the Bawku area.
In the run up to the 2016 general elections, President Akufo-Addo, then the presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party, appealed to Naba Abugragu Azoka II, and the people of Bawku, to vote massively for him and the NPP, assuring that if voted for, he will help find a permanent solution to the chieftaincy disputes in Bawku.
President Nana Akufo-Addo commended the Bawku Naba and the other Chiefs for the role they have played in ensuring that peace prevails in Bawku, an action, he said, has brought a warm glow of joy and gratitude to his heart.
With Bawku being, predominantly, a farming community, President Akufo-Addo stated that the area would immensely benefit from his government's "Planting for Food and Jobs Programme", which is tailored to help farmers by providing them with improved seedlings, fertilizers at subsidized prices, and extension officers, amongst others.
