The Chairman of the Aliu Mahama Foundation (AMF), Gabby Otchere –Darko speaking on how the North has been deprived at the launch of the fifth anniversary celebrations of the passing of the Vice president in Accra said people of the Northern parts of the country have been stigmatized as poor, less educated and underdeveloped than the people of the South.
