President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured the people of the Volta Region of their importance to the country and thus cannot be discriminated against.

According to the president, the region was not singled out for any special military operation in the run-up to the conduct of the voter registration exercise, and there was certainly no political or ethnic agenda.
Akufo-Addo said despite explanations that were given for the the situation, it appeared not to have satisfied some people because of the mischief that was so easily generated by some elements of social media.
He made this known while speaking at a durbar held in his honour by the Awoamefia of the Anlo State, Togbui Sri III, in Keta, on Thursday, 27th August 2020.
“Volta Region is an integral part of the Republic of Ghana, and military deployments in a Region cannot be described as an invasion,” Akufo-Addo said.
The President noted that the easiest way to tell if people are being discriminated against by a government would be to look out for how the national cake was being shared.
He added that the NPP government under his leadership has spread development projects equitably in all parts of the country with Anloga having their own share as well.
“I dare say this area (Anloga) has done quite well under this Government. After years of demanding, an Anloga District has been created, and a new Assembly Complex is being constructed. There are numerous GETFund projects scattered all over Anloga, and Keta SHS’s is one which I am due to commission today. Important to me are two TVET projects in the Anloga district alone, one of which I shall be inspecting at Atorkor,” he stressed.
On March 22, 2020, President Akufo-Addo in his second address to the nation on COVID-19 measures, announced that the airport would be closed to international and domestic air travels.
Kofi Adda during a tour of the terminal three of the airport to assess the facilities preparedness and work done made this known to the pressmen present.
