Volta Youth for Development (VYD) has consistently pushed the claim that President Mahama and his NDC led government have continuously considered Voltarians in and out of the Volta region and the region itself less important and as a result starve them of what they and the region rightly deserve.
The most annoying part is the President's gift of cars and House to Akua Donkor over the demand of Voltarians.
Note our research has revealed that Madam Akua Donkor has consistently made it clear on most media platforms that due to how charitable, kind and caring President Mahama is, he has given her one Mitsubishi Pajero, one Mitsubishi L200 Pick Up and a four bedroom apartment at Sakumono Estates aside the many goodies he has given her in the past for her continues support of him.
Our further checks revealed that the total value of the 2 cars and the house is 786,000 Gh Cedis
Breakdown of the cost of the gifts
1 USD=4Gh Cedis
Four Bedroom apartment at Sakumono Estates =478,000 Gh Cedis
Mitsubishi Pajero =$55,000
Mitsubishi L200 Pickup =$22,000
= 88,000Gh Cedis
Total = 786,000 Gh Cedis
Moreover our research in the Volta region has also revealed that majority of towns in the region are very much in need of basic stuffs such as CHPS compound and potable drinking water.
As a result majority of Voltarians have to travel long distances for medical assistance and also for clean water or depend on rain water or water from polluted rivers for their drinking, cooking and bathing.
The break down and total value of the demands of some of the areas we researched at are as follows;
Cost of one borehole =12,000Gh Cedis
Cost of one CHPS compound 180,000 Gh Cedis
Adaklu District current source of water is Tordze river (polluted)
Number of boreholes needed 10, 10x12,000=120,000
Drovukope in Akatsi South
Current source of water is rain water or water Agbedrafor which is 30 kilometers away
Number of boreholes needed is 12, 12x12,000=144,000
Number of boreholes needed is 10
Asukawkaw town in the Biakoye constituency
current source of water is Asukawkaw river(polluted)
Number of boreholes needed is 8
Nyitawuta village in Anlo constituency
source of medical assistance, cross river Anyanui to either South Tongu constituency or Anlo constituency
Solution: one CHPS compound in the village,
Cost of a CHPS compound is 180,000Gh Cedis
The total value of all the projects needed by these five areas is equal to 660,000 Gh Cedis
A comparison of total value of item given to Akua Donkor about (786,000) and that of the total cost of the project needed by this five towns (660,000) to help better the lives of thousand Voltarians and non Voltarians living there shows that Akua Donkor gift alone is far expensive that the cost of all the projects needed in this towns.
The above shows that the NDC and President Mahama have being very wicked and ungrateful to Voltarians especially considering their continues loud cry for such basic needs despite their loyalty.
