The announcement, therefore made by the President could not have come at better time than this.

“We, are therefore, once again grateful to the President and all those who played an important role leading to this big announcement.

We, the members of Terebuuriyele home and abroad wish to assure the President and the good people of our homeland of our full support for the speedy implementation of the language. We are using this medium to remind His Excellency the President about our airport project he promised us,”.

However, the members also seized the opportunity to appeal to the President give consideration to maintaining Bolgatanga as the location for the airport project.

“Our information is that contrary to your firm commitment to the people of Bongo, the Aviation Minister Joseph Kofi Adda since taking over as Minister, has been making frantic efforts to relocate the technically unsuitable Paga Airstrip against the interest of the good people of the Upper East Region.

Is our hope and prayer that his Excellency President Akufo-Addo will retain the Bolgatanga Airport as originally planned,” the members stated.
