The President of the Oti Regional House of Chiefs, Krachiwurah, Nana Mprah Besemuna III has apologized to President Nana Akufo Addo, on behalf of the people of the region for not producing a Member of Parliament (MP) in the 2020 general election for the NPP.

The Chief said "Oti region could not contribute any seat to your government in spite of all that you've done for us. But I dare say that, that is the beauty of democracy and your Excellency being the astute politician that you are, will understand the dynamics of elections."

"We can only apologize and urge you to put this behind you and focus on the vision of your developmental agenda for the Oti region," he said.

Nana Mprah Besemuna said this during a courtesy call the President made on the Paramount Chiefs of Krachi Nchumuru, Nkonya Ahenfie, Nkonya Wurapong, Tapa, Asonkoko, and Chief of Dambai including the Kokomba and Zongo leaders on Thursday, 9 September 2021 during a day visit to the region.

The Chief, however, said they are grateful for the developmental projects the Nana Addo led administration has started in the region, specifically, the Yam and Cassava Processing Factory in Adonkwanta, Waste Management Plant in Dambai, construction of Oti Regional Coordinating Council, National Health Insurance Scheme Office complex, roads and among the rest.

He then asked the President to continue to prioritize the development of the region as the various projects shall remain his (President Nana Akufo Addo's) legacies.

Nana Mprah Besemuna, however, asked the President to build the bridge on the Oti lake, give the region an urban water system, reliable power supply, and also support the Oti Regional House of Chiefs with seed money to run the affairs of the council.

On the side of the President, he mentioned that he is determined to develop the Oti Region, adding that he would address all the demands made.

He then thanked the people for their support in the 2020 general election and called on them to do more in 2024 with emphasis that "Whatever be the case the development process must go on" in the region.
