Former President John Dramani Mahama has promised to upgrade the Wa municipality to metropolis if he wins this year’s elections.
Speaking at the forecourt of the Wa Naa Palace while addressing the chiefs and people of the area as part of his four-day campaign tour of the Upper West Region, the NDC flagbearer said the growing number of people in the area makes it necessary to lift it to metropolis.
This move, he said, will bring the needed development in the area.
“Considering the growing number of people and businesses in the Wa municipality, it will be befitting to upgrade it to the status of a metropolis if I am voted into power.”
His tour of that part of the country forms part of his campaign activities ahead of this year’s presidential and parliamentary elections.
