The Presidential nominee of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday October 25, 2016, snubed the much-advertised National Forum on Transformation of Northern Savannah of Ghana which was slated to take place in Bolgatanga.
The Coalition of SADA Zone Civil Society Organizations is holding a national forum on the transformation of Northern Savannah of Ghana in Bolgatanga. The forum is aimed at bringing the Presidential candidates of the political parties contesting in this year’s polls to outline their vision and plans on transforming the Northern Savannah Ecological Zone into a place of opportunities for all, free from poverty and inequalities.
The organizers had scheduled the Presidential candidates of the NPP, NDC and CPP to feature at the forum on October 25, 26 and 27 respectively. However, Nana Addo who was first to speak about his vision to transform the Northern Ecological Zone, did not show up even though the organizers have told Top News Ghana the candidate and his party had confirmed their participation.
Bismark Adongo Ayorogo, the Executive Secretary of the coalition told Top News Ghana before the start of the program that the purpose of the forum is to afford the Presidential candidates the opportunity to tell the people of Northern Savannah Ecological Zone what they would do to transform their area should any of them be given the mandate to govern the country.
But Nana Addo who was billed to address the audience in Bolgatanga failed to show up as he is currently campagning the Volta Region.
Prince Imoro Andani, a former minister in the erstwhile NOT administration was however tasked at the eleventh hour to step in for Nana Addo.
