Upper West Regional Minister Meets With NPA

Upper West Regional Minister Calls for NPA to Establish Cylinder Manufacturing Company in Northern Ghana
The Upper West Regional Minister, Hon. Stephen Yakubu, articulated a compelling vision for economic development in Ghana during a town hall event held on April 29, 2024, at the Upper West Regional Library in Wa.
Addressing participants at a Town Hall Meeting on Cylinder Recirculation Model, Hon. Stephen Yakubu urged the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) to take proactive steps towards establishing a cylinder manufacturing company in Northern Ghana.
He emphasized the potential transformative impact such an initiative could have on the local economy, particularly in terms of job creation for the youth.
Hon. Yakubu underscored the pressing need for sustainable employment opportunities in Northern Ghana, highlighting the significant socio-economic challenges facing the area.
By advocating for the establishment of a cylinder manufacturing company, he sought to address this need while also promoting economic diversification and resilience.
Moreover, Hon. Yakubu positioned the Cylinder Recirculation Model (CRM) as a pivotal component of the government’s strategy to promote environmental sustainability and public safety.
He lauded the CRM as a progressive policy aimed at encouraging the widespread adoption of LPG usage while mitigating the environmental impact of traditional energy sources.
By promoting clean energy alternatives, Hon. Yakubu asserted, the government could safeguard the environment for future generations and reduce the risk of gas-related accidents.
He therefore called upon the NPA to address community concerns and ensure that the interests of all stakeholders are taken into consideration.
