Henry Osei Akoto replies Obed Asamoah with a tall list of Mahama’s achievements in Volta Region


A national organiser aspirant of the just ended National Democratic Congress (NDC) elections, Henry Osei Akoto, has described assertions that former President John Mahama and the NDC neglected the Volta region, totally misleading.

In an earlier interview monitored by GhanaWeb, Dr. Obed Asamoah who questioned his achievements, said that President Mahama didn’t do anything for the region, which is considered the powerhouse of the NDC.

This, he added, was responsible for the low numbers that the NDC received in the 2020 election, as compared to earlier feats by the founder of the NDC, Jerry John Rawlings, and President John Evans Atta Mills.

Dr. Obed Asamoah also blamed the former president for the NDC’s inability to retain the Hohoe seat, which, for the first time, was won by the New Patriotic Party’s John Peter Amewu.

But the 2020 parliamentary candidate for the Oforikrom Constituency, Henry Osei Akoto, has disagreed with the former Attorney General.

In a post shared on social media rebutting the claims of the law luminary and politician, Henry Osei Akoto stated that John Mahama undertook hundreds of projects in the party’s nationally acclaimed “world bank.”

“Respectfully, in response to my senior comrade, Dr. Obed Asamoah, about Mahama not doing anything for Volta, I beg to differ.

“John Dramani Mahama as president did over 30 projects under health, over 129 under education, about 60 projects in the transport sector, 16 projects in the ICT sector, and many other countless projects in different sectors.

“Any doubting Thomas can provide evidence to the contrary!” he wrote.
He further provided a list of the projects cutting across the transport, health, education, ICT, and many other sectors of the economy.

These include the Ho town asphalt roads, bitumen surfacing of Juapong- Fodzoku road, Battor Dove-Sogakope road, Akatsi- Ziope road, Akatsi- Aflao roads, Abor junction Ohawu- Xevi roads, Kpedzeglo- Mafi Kumasi, Pepesu- Nkwanta roads, Dzodze Akanu roads, Asikuma to Adzokoe, Kpando- Kudzra roads.

The NDC under Mahama also completed the Akplorwu Torkor sea defence project in the Anlo constituency. The Blekusu and Horvi projects in the Ketu South constituency were near completion before he handed over power to Nana Akufo Addo.

The NDC is also credited with the new Ho Airport, the University Of Health And Allied Sciences, Ho, upgrading of facilities at the Ho Technical University, teacher and nursing training institutions.

In the area of commerce, the NDC built the Ho modern market with a crèche, clinic, police post, fire service post under construction. It also built a multi-purpose shopping center at Anloga, 28-lockable stores; Aflao Lorry Park, a Slaughter house; Aflao, a $9million investment located at Aveyime for the export of banana. 1,700 hectares out of 8,000 hectares cultivated so far giving jobs to over 700 youths, Shrimps farming at Alakple within the Keta municipality.
