Former President of the Republic of Ghana, Flight Lieutenant Jeremiah John Rawlings, who doubles as founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said the people of the Volta Region have nothing to show after years of loyalty to the NDC, MyNewsGh.com can report.
The Region, long described as the ‘World Bank’ of the NDC, Mr Rawlings said: “they have nothing to show”.
He bemoaned the failure of the NDC to improve on the road network in the region or work at tackling poverty which is chronic in the region.
According to the founder of the NDC, “the Volta Region have faithfully voted for the National Democratic Congress on many occasions but they have nothing to be proud of because they live in poverty coupled with bad road network.”
Mr Rawlings, who is not known for flattery delivered this message right in the face of one of the Volta Region’s fastest rising political ‘stars’, one whom the former President had cause to once refer to allegedly as one of ‘Babies with sharp teeth’, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
Mr Ablakwa, Member of Parliament for North Tongu had led the chiefs and people of Mepe, to announce to the former President news of the death of Mamaga Awusi Sreku II, a great queen who ruled for over 63 years.
Mr Rawlings described the late queen’s death as a big loss to the nation, but losing sight of the opportunity to pass some comments on the alleged neglect of the region.
