Western North residents demand key developments from NPP & NDC Presidential Candidates

Residents of the Western North Region are calling for all citizens to support a list of essential needs that will be presented to the Presidential Candidates of both the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The residents insist that the winning party in the 2024 elections must commit to fulfilling these demands to improve the living conditions in the region, which is currently facing significant poverty despite its rich resources.
