The Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, has likened the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government’s relationship with the people of the Volta Region to a husband who has offended his wife, and comes to his in-laws to plead on his behalf. He said the Volta Region and the governing NDC have had close ties over the years, despite the challenges that have threatened their relationship.

Responding to concerns raised by the acting President of the Peki Traditional Area, Togbe Ayim VI, over the deplorable nature of their roads and the slow pace of work on the eastern corridor roads, Mr. Debrah said that, although much has been done by government to enhance the lives of the people in the region, more work is expected to be done.

The Chief of Staff was addressing the chiefs and people of Peki as part of his four-day tour of the region, when he assured the people “of better days ahead” if the NDC is retained in government. Following a dicussion of the people’s challenges, Mr. Debrah assured that “the many other issues that you raised, the upgrade and renovation of the hospitals, we will take them up.”

“When we have such interactions and you bring issues to our attention, it is our responsibility to take them up as government that listen so that we factor them into our planning, or we start taking action for you to realize that we are not taking the issues raised for granted,” he added.
