The Member of Parliament for Navrongo Central Mr. Sampson Tangombu Chiragia laments that the 2022 budget has nothing good for the people of Upper East Region.

Speaking in an exclusive interview, the Navrongo Central legislator said the region has been neglected.

According to him, not even the controversial airport issue was mentioned in the 2022 Budget, which to him, was very worrying especially with the difficult long journey the people of Upper East go through from Tamale before getting into the region.

He appealed to the government to make provision for the quick start of the construction of the airport in the region.

“As for this NPP budget, not even only constituency alone benefitted anything. I will say the whole region was neglected. If you look at the budget, there is nothing there for Upper East Region. We will continue to talk even our airport, is not easy driving from Tamale to Bolga at all.

“We are saying that in fact, they should be able to do something in such that, we can also go home every Friday and come back on Monday. We don’t mind whichever part of the region they are putting the airport for us, even if they go and put it in Garu, it will still be better than going to Tamale and traveling all the way to Navrongo.

“The multi-purpose dam they said they are doing for us, in the budget there is nothing there about it. We are not seeing anything that is helping the region. These are the things we are looking at. If in the whole region there is no good project, how do you then talk of a constituency? The budget is not friendly to Upper East Region at all.”
