Dr Ephraim Nsoh, Upper East Regional Minister at the weekend gave the assurance that he would not be “an armed chair Regional Minister” but rather strive to promote the development of the area.
He said plans are far advanced to bring technocrats and other knowledgeable people together to draw up a development blue print for the Region.
Speaking at the weekend, during his official assumption of duty he assured the people that he would operate an open door policy so that everybody would be brought on board to offer good suggestions for development.
He offered hands of friendship to journalists in the Region but cautioned them to be circumspect and objective in their reportage.
On education, Dr Nsoh noted that since it is the key to unlocking poverty he had established Educational Support Fund at Vea.
He said a Regional Educational Support Fund is also in the pipeline to cater for brilliant but needy students.
Dr Nsoh said he would work with the Ministry of Health and donor partners to ensure good incentive packages to attract doctors and health professionals to the Region.
He said another area he would tackle is the empowerment of the youth and women groups to build their capacity to curb the rural- urban migration.
Prior to his appointment, Dr Nsoh was the Head of Department, Department of Gur-Gonja Languages Education of the University of Education, Winneba.
He holds a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Ghana and Attestation (proficiency in French), Université de Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso among other qualifications.
