A group calling itself Volta Youth Forum emerging from the Volta Region of Ghana has in a press statement copied to Coverghana.com.gh on Friday, 22nd May, 2020 is showing disappointment by registering its protest to the ignoble treatment of president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo towards the Anlo constituency as far as the distribution of the national cake is concerned.
According to the group, they recall with much nostalgia how the Shime road which started with much jubilation from the citizens of Shime came to a halt as soon as president Nana Addo assumed the high office of the land.
Volta Youth Forum revealed that, the Shime roads which was started in 2015 during former president John Dramani Mahama’s government was to be completed in 2017. But to their dismay, president Akufo-Addo after assuming office on January 7, 2017 abandoned the projects.
In a joint press statement signed by Simon Awadzi, Precious Agboado, Gbordomegbor and Senam Doe, revealed that, GHACOS Ltd, the contractor working on the road was made to vacate the site as soon as there was change of government for auditing to be done. Since then the 20km road which was near 65-70% completion has been left to deteriorate under H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Volta Youth Forum has unequivocally declared to join chiefs from Kome and Shime to emphasize their collective demand for the completion of the Kome and Shime roads.
