President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says the Volta Region has seen very little in terms of development over the years, despite voting massively for the National Democratic Congress in successive elections.
According to President Akufo-Addo, “I am sure that all of you have seen that today, the umbrella has got nothing but holes in it. It can no longer act like an umbrella, it got holes in it. When it rains and you put it up, the water will be upon you because it’s no longer working as an umbrella.”
He continued, “The umbrella has dominated the politics of the Volta Region in the Fourth Republic, but what are the results? What is the progress that the Volta Region has seen under the umbrella? Zero! Zero! Zero! Absolutely zero!”
The President made this known on Saturday, November 21, 2020, at the launch of the 2020 campaign of the New Patriotic Party’s parliamentary candidate for Hohoe, John-Peter Amewu, at the RC Park in Hohoe, Volta Region.
Addressing the gathering, President Akufo-Addo indicated that in the three and a half to four years of the ‘elephant’ in the Volta Region, a lot of changes, in terms of development, are taking place in the Volta Region.
“The time has come, with Hohoe in the lead, for the Volta Region to come and sit on the elephant, and the promise I am making you is that, when you get on the elephant, you will never get off the elephant. You will stay there and stay there for years and years and years to come,” he said.

In the John-Peter Amewu, President Akufo-Addo was confident that Hohoe has got an excellent candidate, describing him as one of the outstanding ministers of the Akufo-Addo Government.
