“When we were fighting for the 10 percent most people did not agree, and the people that opposed the decision were from the Volta Region” adding that “We are keenly waiting and praying to see the day that oil will be in the Volta region for them to come up with any proposal,” the Vice President of the Western Regional House of Chiefs, Nana Kwesi Agyemang said.
Nana Kwesi Agyemang, made this known at a public forum on the sidelines of the Public Interest and Accountability Committee’s Report in the Western Region. He said people of the Volta Region opposed their demands and will do same should they make similar requests.
The Chief made the comments when a member of PIAC, Mr. Kwame Jantuah said that the absence of a national Development Plan is hampering development in the country especially the Western Region.
Nana Kwesi Agyemang said “whoever much is given much is expected” and so their request for the 10 percent was to bring at par the infrastructural deficits which is crippling the development of the region.
