A Deputy General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Koku Anyidoho has assured chiefs and people of the Volta Region of a “better story in 2017.”
He said the NDC is addressing the pressing needs of people in the region, stating, “2017-2020 will be better stories for Volta”.
Mr Anyidoho was addressing chiefs of Norvisi Development Union (NORDU) at Nyive in the Ho Municipality.
He said the country has laid a solid foundation and is now on “growth trajectory” and the region would begin to see a “better image” from next year.
Mr Anyidoho said by 2020 concerns of bad roads, schools, hospitals and local industries would be addressed.
He said some of their concerns could be addressed by government appointees in the region and charged them to rise to the occasion.
Mr Anyidoho asked the appointees to desist from acts that put government in bad light, since such deeds would not be entertained.
“Government appointees must not take their positions for granted. They must respond to the concerns of the people, be accommodating and respectful.
“We are picking strong vibes of negative attitudes and we will not entertain these,” he warned.
NORDU chiefs expressed concern over bad roads, lack of potable water, and youth unemployment.
