We can take good care of our 'wives' than the NPP - Julius Debrah to Voltarians

Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah with members of the traditional council.

The Chief of Staff Julius Debrah has said that the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) under President Mahama can take good care of the Chiefs and people of the Volta region (wives) than the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in every shape and form.

"Nobody can take good care of our "wives" which is the Volta region than the original "husbands" which is the NDC," he said.

The Chief of Staff paid a courtesy call to the traditional council of the Asogli state together with his entourage to iron out a few differences and deepen the already good relations that existed between the Asogli State and the NDC as part of his five day campaign tour of the Volta region.

The Chief of Staff who likened the NDC and the Chiefs and people of the Volta region as husband and wives said "if you are with your wife and you are doing something that she is not happy about, you need to go back to your in laws and  say daddy my wife is not happy, you could provide her with the basic necessities including schools, roads, hospitals but would still not be happy. The best thing to do under the circumstances is to go back to your in laws to say, daddy pls tell me what my wife is not happy about so I could change."

He said he was in the palace to say sorry to their beautiful and trusted "wives" and whatever the NDC has done to make their "wives" unhappy be amended and rectified, so that if there are some things we aren't doing right, once we are advised either privately or publicly we shall take it in good faith.

"It is only when we are advised and we don't take it then it means the "husband" is trying to run away from the "wives, " stating that, we love our wives and we want to have our wives back."

The Chief of Staff said, Whatever  the NDC under the capable leadership of President Mahamato will do to ensure a stronger and better relationship than it use to be, we are willing and ready to do.

On her part, the regional minister Helen Adwoa Ntoso said the relationship between the regional coordinating council is solid and healthy. She said through the perfect relationship that existed between them has resulted in the resolution of disagreements which had span for years especially Nkonya and Alvanyo. 

He urged the Chiefs to continue partnering and supporting government to accelerate development and to promote peaceful Co existence among the people at all times.

In the absence of the President of the Volta regional house of Chiefs and paramount chief of the Asogli State Tobe Afede, the warlord of the Asogli traditional area Togbe Adze Larkley  praised government for the development in the area but requested for more to be done. He called on the regional executives to at all times brief the traditional council of current happenings esp of government's good intentions.
He also affirmed the fact that the relations between the traditional council and the VRCC has been mutual and progressive.

He made it known that Togbe Afede has traveled outside the country, the reason he had to receive the respected chief of staff.

The Chief of Staff has Prof Kwamena Ahwoi, madam Cecelia Johnson, Anita Desoso, Emelia Arthur , ambassador Sylvanus Tamakloe among others as members of his entourage.
