A constituent of the Ketu North who hails from Aflao in the Ketu South Constitution Mr. Godwin Adifli popularly known as Atom has narrated the contributions of Torgbui Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti V in the Education Sector in Afloa Traditional Area.
Godwin Adifli who is a member of the Ketu North Communication Team as well the Volta Regional Communications Team of the National Democratic Congress said, Torgbui Fiti V benevolence quest to establish secondary school in Aflao started in the 1990s and believe strongly he single handedly invested alot in this desire.
According to him, in the year 2000, he [Godwin Adifli] enrolled in Aflao secondary school (Aflasco) behind Diamond cement factory. As a motivation to the students, Torgbuiga Fiti on daily basis hired bus for the students from his personal resources; and he was paying the teachers all alone.
He added that, during Torgbui’s first trip to China, he came back with a lot of promises from NGOs who would come and talk to students about their plan towards the school. “I can confidently say that, Torgbuiga Fiti’s impact and his quest to see secondary school materialize in Aflao is bigger than the impact of President Akufo-Addo’s impact in education during his twelve years reign as member of parliament in Abuakwa.”
“Why do I say this? I want us to appreciate Torgbuiga Fiti’s frustration because he invested a lot for the dream of secondary in Aflao to become a reality. The big question is, what is Torgbuiga Fiti’s crime that warrant the arrogant, disrespectful, irresponsible, incompetent and insensitive response from president Akuffo Addo? Is it because he gave an ultimatum? Then the power drunk NPP led by President Akuffo Addo should go back and learn about democracy and good governance.”
“The sovereignty of Ghana resides in the citizens, and for that matter, citizens are the employers of all the Article 71 office holders hence the power to give them the ultimatum to finish their abandoned projects like the E-blocks and hospitals.”
“Torgbuiga Fiti wields traditional authority over thousands of citizens that makes him more than qualified to give his employee an ultimatum. Is the rancour against Volta Region? So many people were asking this question and I support their logic: “Can the President arrogantly response to Okyenhene, Asantehene or any paramount chief from Akanland like this?” I could vividly remember what happened in Akyem when a communicator wanted to eulogize former President John Mahama’s water project. The Akyem chiefs banned NDC from any campaign related activities in the area but Torgbe Afede was verbally abused by NPP Chairman Freddy Blay and he did not even render unqualified apology for that disrespectful act. It is obviously clear that NPP government led by Akuffo Addo and Bawumia don’t respect Voltarians at all.”
Narrating further, he said, “Come to think of it, did I hear Hon Pius Enam Hadzide defending this irresponsible comment from the president? Pope Yevoo, the Volta Regional Communications Officer of NPP also granted interview on Dabala-based Sela Radio pummeled Torgbuiga Fiti with abusive language. In fact, Pope Yevoo even insulted the chief the most by asking our revered Torgbuiga, in choosing to be a citizen and not a spectator, must not “be reckless and irresponsible.”
“What! Pope Yevoo called Torgbuiga Fiti a reckless and irresponsible citizen for calling on government to complete the abandoned school block for students to occupy? Wasn’t Pope Yevoo aware that this same President Akufo-Addo promised Volta Chiefs including Torgbuiga Fiti in October 2016 that he would not abandon but complete all NDC projects when elected? This “amemabumabu” of Pope Yevoo is reprehensible, to say the least. Are they the true son of Anlo who learnt “Torgbui Sri fe nuxloame nyawoa”? I sincerelydoubt so. But Hon Pius Enam Hadzide, I understand him because he thought Ghanaians have forgotten his Australia Visa racketeering that is why he has the effrontery to call for Ghanaians to ignore the irresponsible comment from his clearing agent that can still give him the juicy opposition in government. They should continue building Mansion within two years but the day of accountability will surely come.”
“On this note, I am calling on all industrious indigens of Aflao to come on board for us to support support Torgbuiga Fiti with our donations in other to finish the uncompleted E block started by former President John Mahama. Mr John Dumelo your donation is warmly welcome.” Be explained.
