Membership of this Noble Association are not only happy that you have chosen our own people once again, but also a crop of gentlemen who tallies better with our development agenda of Kusaug.

We also wish to appeal to the president to consider the various uncompleted projects in Kusaug and the region as a whole, most especially, the Bolgatanga-Bawku-Pulmakom road which has become breeding grounds for criminal activities and a major cause of many accidents in the region. The Pwalugu Multi-Purpose Dam and Tamde Irrigation Projects which has been stalled for sometime now, are also projects that when completed as anticipated would contribute immensely to livelihood and many sectors within the region.
