Chiefs and Queens from the Dzodze Traditional Area in the Ketu North Municipality of the Volta Region have petitioned the President of the Republic, H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on the nomination of Hon. Samuel Kofi Dzamesi Ahiave for a ministerial portfolio or any other appropriate office.
According to the Traditional Authorities, Mr. Dzamesi is an industrious son of the land whose contributions towards development has been phenomenal and diverse.
They noted that, these developments have been as a result of the competitiveness he brings into the politico-social ambiance of the entire Ketu North Constituency.
To the Traditional Council, they are not campaigning for any political party, but campaigning for their son, an individual who they believe when given the opportunity and adequate resources, can complete what he has begun.
“In as much as Chiefs are not to partake in active politics, we together with our people ultimately benefit from the political competition among the two major parties in the area as each side tries to present a better solution to our challenges”. they stated
They said, they have seen the positive sides of Mr. Dzamesi in all his political endeavors from the Regional minister to the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs.
“From his days as a Regional Minister during the erstwhile Kuffour’s Administration and as a Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs Minister under your tenure, we have come to see that he is a very good development agent”.
The Traditional Council said, they have also seen what happened in Hohoe, where John-Peter Amewu the former Energy Minister introduced a similar competition in the politico-social atmosphere of the area. A phenomenon which has translated into unprecedented development and paradigm shift in the area.
“We have also not been surprised that his development oriented kind of leadership has also seen him win the hearts of a lot of our people; his constituents. No wonder he managed to garner about 23000 votes when he contested in the 2020 general elections to represent the people in parliament.This love that is generating around him also saw your Excellency garner about 15000 votes in the same election. This for us, is unprecedented and commendable because, “he who climbs a fruitful tree must be supported” as our elders will say”
They said, Mr. Dzamesi is climbing a fruitful tree hence pleading with the President to kindly support him to do more for his people so as to see the development the entire Volta region desire.
They are therefore stepping in to appeal to the President to nominate Hon. Samuel Kofi Dzamesi Ahiave for a ministerial portfolio or any other office the presidency deems fit in the second administration.
