- Former president John Dramani Mahama has once again made a promise in the run-up to the 2020 elections
- He said if he is voted back into power, he would continue the sea defense project he started during his tenure in office
- Mahama said by so doing, the communities along the Ada to Ningo Prampram coastline would be protected from erosion
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has assured the chiefs and people of the Ada Traditional Area that when the NDC is voted back into power, he would continue with the sea defense project.
He said by so doing, the communities along the Ada to Ningo Prampram coastline would be protected from the erosion from the sea.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Ada at a church service to climax the 82nd Ada Asafotufiami Festival, the NDC flagbearer said the first phase of the sea defense project, which was completed during his tenure would be continued.
“When I form my government in 2021, I want to assure you, Nene Akuaku, that we will reinforce the current sea defence works, and continue with the second phase. This will include the Kablevu area, Lolonya, Goi, Anyamam, Akplabanya, Wokumagber to Ningo Prampram,” Mahama announced.
He however challenged the chiefs and people to move to the next stage of developing a sustainable, local economic blue print, that will harness the opportunities of the Ada area, which include tourism, vegetable and fruit farming.
Large baskets of kenkey could be spotted on the ground, with flies hovering around and occasionally settling on them.
Occasionally, they are seen washing their arms from the elbow back into the mashed kenkey ready for the market.
