Founder of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings has criticized the party’s treatment of the Volta region, insisting the region has nothing to show for its years of loyalty.
According to him, the Volta region has done nothing but to stand by the NDC since 1992, however, the party has failed to reward the region’s loyalty with developmental projects.
The cited the chronic poverty and the poor road networks as enough proof that the NDC’s eight-year stay in power brought nothing good to the region.
The former president was particularly pissed by the fact that a region described as the “World Bank” of the NDC when it comes to votes would be neglected in such a manner by the party.
“The Volta Region have faithfully voted for the National Democratic Congress on many occasions but they have nothing to be proud of because they live in poverty coupled with bad road network,” Rawlings said when MP for North Tongu, Okudzeto Ablakwa led the chiefs and people of Mepe, to announce to him news of the death of Mamaga Awusi Sreku II, a great queen who ruled for over 63 years.
