President Akufo-Addo is embarking on a two day tour of the Oti and Volta region respectively from the 9th to 10th September,2021. Oti region was his first of his visit which saw him commissioning a Casava and Yam processing factory under the 1D1F initiative at Addo Nkwanta in the krachi East district of the Oti region and also inspect the Dodo- Pepesu road.
His tour of the Oti Region has been discribed as a mockery of the good people of the Region by the NDC regional Communication officer, Diplomatic Mubarak.
He said “since the Oti Region was created in 2018 and its subsequent inauguration in 2019, the region has been starved with development. “
The Regional Communication officer said although the NPP government led by Prez Akuffo Addo and Bawumia gave lofty promises in the run-up to the 2020 Election, the region is yet to see a monumental development as witnessed under the erstwhile Mahama administration.
He stated ,5 -E Blocks constructed in Yabram, Kwamekrom, Chenderi, Nkwanta, and Damanko (incompleted), numerous chps compounds etc are some capital projects started by H.E John Dramani Mahama which I believe are projects speaking for him.
Roads constructed are speaking for H.E John Dramani Mahama.
Prez Akuffo Addo, five(5) years ago, promised every district a factory and one would have expected that he commissions such factories in every district he visits.
Today, the story is different because he seems to have completely forgotten about such promises.
His claim of commissioning of CH Global LTD(CH Foods) Yam and Cassava Processing Factory is another scam because the said factory is owned by one Mr. Dametia, an ambassador to Togo who is also an NPP affiliate.
This act is not only shameful but also serves as an embarrassment and a testament to a failed government.We are yet to see the operations of the so-called Yam and Cassava Processing Factory.
Again, Akuffo Addo in the run-up to the 2020 Election secured a site with designed pictures of an artistic impression on how the regional hospital would look after completion, as we speak now the site is competing with weeds for space.
Big deceit and a mockery on the good people of Oti Region.The inspection on the recycling plant at Yabram was also done in a funfair style by Akuffo Addo when in fact works on such plants are ongoing and are not likely to finish soon.
The Dodo- Pepesu road was started by H.E John Dramani Mahama . After the loss in 2016, the Akuffo Addo-led government halted the project with claims that the contract sum is unimaginable and should be investigated.
“The investigation was carried out and no malfeasance was found” ,he said.
Today, Akuffo Addo wants Ghanaians to clap for him for the ongoing construction of that stretch of road, could this not be described as witchcraft??
The frustrations expressed by Chiefs before Akuffo Addo concerning feeder roads is another admission of the failure of Akuffo Addo Bawumia led government as far as development in Oti Enclaves is a concern.
Again, we want the president to be considerate and moderate in his much ado about nothing trips which of recent times come with expensive private jets across the borders of this country and long unnecessary vehicular convoys when it comes to his tours within the country.
According to the NDC Oti regional Communication officer,Nana Addo’s predecessors especially the late Prof. Mills and President Mahama at a certain point in time have to put a ceiling on several vehicles used in their nationwide tours to save the taxpayers money even at the time the economy was flourishing.
The good people of Oti Region shall be grateful to Visionary John Dramani Mahama because his developmental projects across Oti Region are indelible legacies which we shall fiercely protect.
President Akufo-Addo will visit Hohoe,Anfoega etc , where he’s expected to commission lorry park and drainages at Anfoega in the North Dayi district of the Volta region as part of the achievements under his government.
