The chiefs were led by the paramount chief of Nkwanta Akyode traditional area, Nana Obonbo Sewura Lipuwura II.
The paramount chief of Nkwanta Akyode traditional area stated on Wednesday, when Nana Akufo-Addo and the leadership of the NPP in the Volta Region paid a courtesy call on him at his palace in Nkwanta.
“Under President Kufuor’s tenure, I can say with all certainty that, all was well with Ghana. There was money in the land and in the pockets of people.
However, under President Mahama men are crying, women are crying, the youth and old are all crying,” the chief said.
He continued: “There is a saying that you visit two markets before one can tell which is the best. We have indeed, visited two markets over the last 16 years, and we know which is best. We know it is the NPP that can help us.”
Nana Lipuwura said with the majority of the youth of Nkwanta unemployed, he endorsed Nana Akufo-Addo’s 1-district-1-factory policy, adding that “we know you can do it. We have already allocated a parcel of land for the factory to be sited”.
Commenting on Nana Akufo-Addo’s promise to create the ‘Western-North’ region out of the Volta Region, the chiefs of Nkwanta appealed to him “to rather create the Oti Region, and site the capital in Nkwanta”.
Nana Lipuwura, reiterated the unwavering support of chiefs in the Nkwanta Akyode traditional area. He prayed for good health and wisdom for Nana Akufo-Addo.
