The Chiefs and People of Gbi Traditional Area (Hohoe) have expressed satisfaction with ongoing infrastructural developments in the Hohoe Municipality, they said was indicative of government’s zeal to ensure the developmental progress of the area.
According to them the area had over the years witnessed several unfulfilled promises of development by successive governments, and as such, were elated that, for the first time in a long time, they are witnessing unprecedented development in their area as promised by the President.
The Chiefs at a press conference in Hohoe to express their gratitude to President Akufo Addo, urged him to continue giving off his best for the area.
Addressing the press conference, Chief of Abansi, Togbe Adzimah V recounted that the President in February 2020 visited the area to sympathise with them over the demise of their Paramount Chief, Togbega Gabusu VI.
He said the President during the visit grieved over his inability to fix the main Hohoe Trunk road and the Hohoe township roads, he assured Togbega Gabusu before his passing.
The President however re-assured the Chiefs and people of the area that the roads will be fixed to honour the late Togbega Gabusu VI.
“True to his words, the main Hohoe trunk road and the township roads are currently being fixed with Asphalt, something the late Togbega Gabusu VI had always been craving till his demise.”
Togbe Adzimah V indicated that the new developmental feat being achieved in the municipality was an immense memorial honour done the late Paramount chief for which his “soul would remain forever grateful”.
Some of the Hohoe town road projects include, Picnic road, Vekusime road, Togbe Gborxo street, Kpeme roads, Bla roads, Hohoe Labato Junction, Hohoe-Fodome roads, River Dzandze Bridge among others.
The Chiefs have commended the President and the Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu, for their roles in ensuring the people have their share of the national cake.
Togbe Keh XII, Chief of Gbi Wegbe (Left Wing Chief) said traditional leaders had in the past commended individuals across the political divide who had contributed to the progress of the area, and as such it was not out of place to commend the efforts the current government, given their desire to see to it that the development of the area came to fruition.
He said the commendation is not political but a fact that needed to be acknowledged because “he who climbs a fruitful tree is worthy of support.”
