Hon. Solomon N. Boar, Minister Designate for North East Region
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bunkpurugu Constituency, Solomon Namliit Boar has been appointed as the first ever Minister [designate] for the newly created North East Region.

Mr Boar who is the outgoing Deputy Northern Regional Minister, was nominated by the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He will be assisted by one Tahiru Tia Ahmed, an educationist from Gambaga in the East Mamprusi District.

Before his appointment as Minister for the North East Region, Mr. Boar played a key role in ensuring peaceful and successful referendum leading to the creation of the new regions in the northern part of Ghana.

He is also noted for his matured and non-political role in assisting the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Government in the implementation of the Dagbon peace roadmap which led to the performance of the final funeral rites of the two late Ya-Nas and the successful installation of a new King of Dagbon, Ya-Na Abukari Mahama.

Residents in the North East Region have expressed their gratitude to the President for nominating Solomon Boar as their first ever Minister.
They believe with his influence in NPP and in government, Mr Boar would be able to attract the needed development to the area. 

One Patience Nawang, a native of the area based in Tamale told WatchGhana.Com that Mr. Solomon Boar aside his humility and respect for all manner of persons, has the competence to turn the fortunes of the region around.

She was confident that with the right support from the Chiefs and people, Mr Boar would make the North East region very proud.
