Volta Caucus Demands Apology From Akufo-Addo Over Insult To Aflao Chief

The Volta Caucus of Parliament is demanding that President Akufo-Addo apologises for talking down on the Chief of Aflao over the chief’s demand for an abandoned E-Block project to be completed.

In a statement read by Ketu South MP, Dzifa Abla Gomashie, the President was told that his disrespect is an affront to the whole of the Volta Region and selectively insulting to the Chiefs and people of the region.

“The President’s conduct which we do not see him exhibit against chiefs from other parts of the country is a total affront to the entire Volta Region and the Aflao Traditional Area in particular. We demand a retraction and apology from the President,” the statement read.

The demand comes after President Akufo-Addo told the Togbui Adzongaga Amenya Fiti V, daxo of the Aflao traditional area, that he can go and complete the E-Block abandoned for five years, himself if he is tired of waiting for the government to complete it.

“The respected traditional ruler merely advocated for an abandoned E-block in his community to be completed so his people will have fair access to education. As citizens and bona fide taxpayers that wasn’t too much to ask. Togbui Adzongaga Amenya Fiti V, daxo of the Aflao traditional area deserves praise for prioritizing education and speaking out against the culture of abandoning inherited projects. He does not deserve such disrespect from the President of the Republic,” Dzifa Ablah Gomashie said.

Meanwhile, she has announced she is launching a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to complete the project.
