The demonstrators accused Akufo-Addo of neglect and betrayal.

The youth were particularly incensed with the stoppage of work on the Bolga-Bawku-Pulimakom road.

Meanwhile, the chiefs and elders of Bawku in the Upper East Region, have called on President Akufo-Addo, to rename the Bawku Senior High School.

The Bawku Naba, Asigri Abugrago Azoka II, told the president that giving the school a new name would resolve the conflict of name between Bawku Senior High School and the Bawku Technical Senior High School.

According to the chief, this would help resolve the confusion over which resource allocation is supposed to go to which institution.
