The National Democratic Congress has began making overtures to the chiefs and people of the Asogli traditional area in the Volta Region after they accused President John Dramani Mahama and his government of neglect.They had during a recent campaign tour of the region by the New Patriotic Party presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, claimed the Volta Region has been taken for granted by the John Mahama-led government.
According to them, the neglect of the region, considered as the ‘World Bank’ of the NDC, has resulted in under-development, something they are not happy about.
But with just a month to the December 7 general elections, the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah on Friday reached out to the chiefs and people of the area and the region in general, in an attempt to make amends.
Likening the relationship between the NDC and the people of the Volta Region to that of a husband and wife, Mr Debrah apologised to the people, indicating they are ready to listen to their grievances to find an amicable resolution to them.
“…Today we are here to say we are sorry to our beautiful wives, anything; whatever at all that we have done that our wives are not happy about, today we need to know, not literally as in today but once we are told, then we have to find a way to make our wives happy” he said.
He said they are ready to take in good faith, “some things we are not doing right,” adding “once we are advised either in chambers or in public, we will take it in good faith”
Mr Debrah assured the people of the Volta Region not to give up on the Mahama-led government yet, and that they should only do so if the NDC fails to heed the advice of the people.
“It is only when we are advised and we don’t take it, then it means this husband is truly… finding a way to run away.
We truly love our wives and we will want to have our wives back” Mr Debrah pleaded.
He urged the people not to severe their relationship with the Mahama government, noting should they do so, whoever they ‘re-marry’ will not take good care of them as they will.
