Sep 19, 2018, 7:10 PM
I bring you greetings from the CEO, Board and Management of the Northern Development Authority. (NDA). I have been requested by my boss, the CEO to step in to deliver this statement on his behalf. The CEO who would have wished to be here himself but for other equally pressing agendas that has kept him tied up in Accra. I will therefore read his statement and hope you will understand his position regarding the importance of this conference especially under its present theme and how it relates to us in the Northern Development Authority. Mr. Chairman excuse me as I paraphrased the CEO’s favorite proverb which depicts his commitment to the development of Northern Ghana. It is said that a child can play with its mother’s breast but not its father’s testicles. For the CEO, Northern Ghana and its development matters represent the testicles of a father that no true child of the north dare to play or toy with.
