Daasebre Obonie Sebewie, the paramount chief of the Dodo traditional division of the Volta Region led a delegation of chiefs and people of the area on Wednesday to the Flagstaff House to express their appreciation for the construction of the Dodo Pepesu – Nkwanta portion of the Eastern Corridor road.
The chiefs had requested for development projects to enhance their development and were therefore delighted when President John Mahama recently cut a sod for the opening of the road during his “Accounting to the People” tour of the Volta Region.
Daasebre Obonie Sebewie told the president that there were other important roads connecting the 15 towns in the traditional area which were deplorable and needed immediate attention.
He also appealed for a senior high school (SHS) to be built in the area and said they had even gone ahead to set aside 24 acres of land for that purpose.
President Mahama who expressed his appreciation to the chiefs for the visit, pledged his commitment to his government’s development agenda of improving roads in the area and other parts of the Volta Region.
He assured them that the minister of roads and highways would expedite action on their request and particularly mentioned the Ahemasu Junction to Pepesu and said it would be added to the cocoa roads programme.
President Mahama told the chiefs that a new community day senior high school (SHS) would be built at Dodo Amanfrom during the next phase of the government’s flagship Community Day SHS project.
