President Mahama has announced his resolve not to take the Volta Region for granted and that all efforts to ensure the region reaps a fair share of the National cake will be implemented.
Touching on the political ripeness of the Region, President Mahama revealed that the Volta Region had over the years voted massively for the National Democratic Congress in all national elections and that it was rather fair to recognise their contributions by providing them with their share of development projects.
"The Volta Region is not only my world bank...but it is also my IMF and I will do everything possible to give you your share of development," he stated.
President Mahama said this when he addressed the Chiefs and people of Sokpoe in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region during their annual Tortsogbeza Festival.The 32nd Edition of the Festival is on the theme:"Consolidating the Socio-cultural Uniqueness of Sokpoe for Development: The Past, Present and the Way Forward."
The festival, which annually brings the sons and daughters of the area together to deliberate on development projects in the area was attended by politicians, members of the Diplomatic Corps and people from all over the country.
