Work towards Mahama’s victory - Chief of Staff tells Peki people

The Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, has asked chiefs and the people of the Peki Traditional Area to work with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to ensure President Mahama’s victory in this year’s election.

In line with this goal, he has charged them to bury all differences and work together to give President John Dramani Mahama a one touch victory at the December polls.

Using the analogy of misunderstanding between a wife and a husband as an

example, Mr Julius Debrah said “when there is misunderstanding, a husband who loves the wife approaches his in-laws top lead on his behalf and when the issue is settled amicably, he gives his wife special care.”

NDC is your baby

Addressing the people of Peki in the South Dayi District as the first port of call on his four-day tour of the Volta Region, the Chief of Staff said the “National Democratic Congress (NDC) is your baby” and assured them of golden times ahead.

This was in response to certain issues raised by the acting President of Peki Traditional Council, Togbe Ayim Modey VI, at the mini-durbar which included showing of respect for the chiefs, upgrading of the Peki Government Hospital with additional services and the construction of internal roads.

Loyalty of the people

Mr Debrah acknowledged the loyalty of the people towards the NDC and promised special care for the traditional area under the second term of President Mahama’s administration.

The Chief of Staff and his high-powered delegation are in the region to intensify the NDC’s campaign.

No endorsement of Akufo-Addo

Togbe Ayim in his welcome address debunked media publication that the chiefs of Peki had endorsed the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flag bearer, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, when he visited the area recently.

According to the chief, the reports were inaccurate because “that never happened.”

Togbe Ayim indicated that an individual involved endorsed Nana Akufo-Addo without any consultation with the chiefs and therefore he was to be sanctioned by the traditional council.

Commendation

The chief commended the government for subduing dumsor and establishing UHAS and further appealed for an improvement in the educational infrastructure at the Peki College of Education, the Peki Senior High School and the Peki Technical School.

The Regional Minister, Madam Helen Ntoso, said the NPP could not throw dust into the eyes of the people because they had seen massive development under President Mahama.
