The president of the Republic of Ghana and the flagbearer of the NPP, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Thursday, 27th August, 2020 paid a working visit to Anloga, Keta, Atorkor and Agordome, all in the Volta Region of Ghana.
While addressing a durbar held in his honour by the Awomefia of the Anlo State, Torgbui Sri III at Keta, he expressed his joy at the rousing welcome he has received. He was equally thankful to the Chiefs and elders for making time of their busy schedules to accommodate him.
He also took his time to allay the fears of the people with regards to the alleged victimization and vendetta against the good people of the Volta Region during the just ended voter registration exercise. According to him, there is no political or ethnic agenda against voltarians as far as his government is concerned. He revealed that the deployment of military and security agents happened at all the borders and it could not have been said that the people along the border towns were targeted. He blamed the brutalization stories that came from the region on social media frenzy created by some elements.
“Some elements of social media went into a frenzy, mostly with old videos taken in Accra and other parts of the world being passed off as residents of the Volta Region being brutalized by soldiers”, President Akufo-Addo said.
NADAA, also visited Keta Senior High School to commission a 12-unit classroom block for the school. He tasked the students to make good use of the new classrooms as his government is committed to improving the quality of education in the country. He reiterated that anyone who does not want free SHS to continue is an enemy to the nation and should be seen as such.
As expected, he spoke fondly of the TVET project at Atorkor Vocational Training Institute, the Water Expansion project at Agordome and the much talked about Keta Landing Site. He assured the people of the area that his government will do everything possible to share the national cake equally to benefit them.
“We have not completed our development journey, but, surely, we are on the right path, and no one can accuse this government of discrimination in the distribution of the national cake,” the President assured.
