President Nana Akufo-Addo has said he is determined to make the Volta Region and Voltarians his wife.
In a riposte to a protest by Mr Kafui Agbleze, the Volta Regional Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) about why the President and his deputy keep frequenting the region, Mr Akufo-Addo told the chiefs and people of Adaklu during his recent tour of the region that Mr Agbleze has not seen anything yet.
“I heard that the other day, the spokesperson of the National Democratic Congress in the Volta Region said that the Vice-President and myself (sic) were coming too often to the Volta Region and that we are trying to reap where we have not sown,” the President said.
“I think that the spokesperson doesn’t know about a man who is determined to marry a woman”, Nana Akufo-Addo observed, adding: “You will continue to go to the house and you go and go and go”.
“So, that is what I am determined to do”, he revealed, explaining: “I am determined to marry the people of the Volta Region and I'm going to come here as often as is necessary until I get them”.
For his part, the paramount chief of the Adaklu Traditional Area, Togbe Gbogbi Atsa V, assured President Akufo-Addo of the determination of the chiefs and people to maintain the prevailing peace in the area ahead of the 7 December 2020 general elections.
“We assure Your Excellency that we will continue to keep the peace prevailing in the Adaklu traditional area, especially during this election year and beyond”, Togbe Gbogbi Atsa V promised.
The chief also expressed hope that his area would soon benefit from the government’s ‘Year of Roads’ agenda for 2020.
