The Minority Caucus in Parliament is making allegations that, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) have plans to rig the 2020 election.
The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu at a press conference today [Tuesday] said, they have become aware of exceedingly suspicious, unwarranted and unfair transfers of the two persons in charge of the Births and Deaths Registry.
According to the NDC, the NPP government is also bent on using the Ghana Card registration data as the foundation data to be used for an entirely new voters register.
‘’The letters conveying the directive to the two officers in the Volta Region namely Mr. Richard Womega, Head of the Volta Region Births and Deaths Registry and Ms. Peace Agbenyo, Deputy Regional Head emanated from the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development all dated 19th June, 2018.
The bizarre communication requested the two senior officers to cease with immediate effect the registration of all Ghanaians in the Volta Region and report themselves to the Ministry that same day being the 19th of June, 2018.
We must stress that our checks have revealed that these strange and unfair transfers are being carried out only in the Volta Region. In other words, it is not a national exercise. Clearly, this is a scheme ostensibly to purge the system and pave the way for their strategy to manipulate the process.’’

PRESS CONFERENCE BY THE MINORITY IN PARLIAMENT ON DISCRIMINATORY TRANSFERS AT THE BIRTHS AND DEATHS REGISTRY AND THE NPP'S RIGGING AGENDA FOR ELECTION 2020
Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of the press.
We are grateful to you for promptly honouring our invitation and the professional manner in which you continue to carry out your duties in our collective democratic interest.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Minority in Parliament has convened today's Press Conference to address very troubling and dangerous developments at the Births and Deaths Registry.
We have become aware of exceedingly suspicious, unwarranted and unfair posting transfers of the two persons in charge of the Births and Deaths Registry in the Volta Region and a directive that same day to Mr. John Yao Agbeko the National Head to vacate his post.
The letters conveying the directive to the two officers in the Volta Region namely Mr. Richard Womega, Head of the Volta Region Births and Deaths Registry and Ms. Peace Agbenyo, Deputy Regional Head emanated from the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development all dated 19th June, 2018.
The bizarre communication requested the two senior officers to cease with immediate effect the registration of all Ghanaians in the Volta Region and report themselves to the Ministry that same day being the 19th of June, 2018.
We must stress that our checks have revealed that these strange and unfair transfers are being carried out only in the Volta Region. In other words, it is not a national exercise. Clearly, this is a scheme ostensibly to purge the system and pave the way for their strategy to manipulate the process.
Members of the Press, as we all very well know, this is the period the Government of Ghana is rolling out the Ghana Card.
Despite the consistent and very loud rational calls on the Government by the Minority in Parliament, Civil Society Organizations, all political parties except the NPP, large sections of society including Former Presidents Rawlings, Kufuor and Mahama, the Government has remained intransigent and determined to issue the Ghana Card on the basis of just Birth Certificates and Passports. Needless to add that even with this limited scope of Passports and Birth Certificates, the Volta Region since June 19, 2018 has had the door shut in its face as there's no ongoing registration unlike other regions.
We have long believed that the reckless intransigence on the part of the Government and the belligerent open defence of same by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is targeted primarily at the Volta Region. Sadly, our worse fears have now been confirmed.
The Volta Region is not the only border region in Ghana and yet the New Patriotic Party has consistently demonized the Volta Region with the sole objective of reducing voter turn out in the Volta Region and thereby advancing the NPP's electoral chances.
We cannot forget how then running mate Alhaji Mahmoud Bawumia held that infamous press event in August 2015 at Alisa Hotel in Accra ahead of the December 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary elections where he claimed that 76,286 people on the register of voters in the Volta Region are Togolese. Indeed the now Vice President alleged then that he will be presenting further evidence when he is done analysing the remaining 90 percent of the Togolese register of voters with the aid of his so-called facial biometric recognition technology. We are still waiting on the Vice President to make good his promise almost three years on.
The insults and unwarranted attacks on the people of the Volta Region from leading members of the NPP/UP tradition have been consistent in our history from the "inward looking" statement by Victor Owusu to the infamous "there are no human beings in Hohoe" as claimed by Kwabena Agyapong. All this notwithstanding, as the Volta Region is noted for, we have always turned the other cheek, ignoring our attackers and living peacefully with all men as the Bible instructs us to do. It is for this reason, as we speak to you this morning, President Akufo-Addo has been receiving a warm welcome by our Chiefs and people on his three-day visit to the region which he began yesterday. We only hope that President Akufo-Addo and the NPP will not take the peaceful and sober demeanor of the people of the Volta Region for granted.
That said, it has become very obvious that the Akufo-Addo Government seeing that it has performed abysmally in power has hatched a grand scheme to prevent as many people as possible in the Volta Region where they lack support from obtaining base documents needed to register for the Ghana Card even as they continue to resist sound advice to include the Voter ID. This can be the only plausible reason for the unfair and callous transfer of Mr. Womega and Ms. Agbenyo and the removal of Mr. John Yao Agbeko as the National Head.
Ladies and Gentlemen, in the case of Ms. Agbenyo; she had been transferred from the Sekondi Municipality in the Western Region to the Volta Region with her little children in less than a year before her current cruel transfer. Ms. Agbenyo is not a happy woman as her tears continue to flow everyday. This abuse of administrative processes flies in the face of every public service regulation.
We are also aware that the National Head of the Births and Deaths Registry in Accra who hails from the Volta Region, Mr. John Yao Agbeko was handed out similar brutish treatment when he was instructed to hand over to a subordinate and report himself to the Head of the Public Service Commission for reposting to another institution.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is important to bear in mind that the NPP Government intends to use the Ghana Card registration data as the foundation data to be used for an entirely new voters register.
As can be observed, recent developments at the Electoral Commission with the removal of the Electoral Commissioner and her two deputies set the perfect stage for the NPP as part of their grand scheme to pursue their agenda of rigging the 2020 elections.
The NPP must be forewarned that no responsible Ghanaian who cares about our nascent democracy including those of us in the Minority will sit idle and allow them to continue on this reckless path to bastardize the democracy we have all toiled to build and for which they have become the biggest beneficiaries.
The Minority serves notice in the most unequivocal terms that we will not permit the flagrant violation of Article 45 (a) of the Constitution of Ghana which mandates only the Electoral Commission "to compile the register of voters and revise it at such periods as may be determined by law."
We will therefore fiercely resist with every force we can marshal any attempt to hide under the National Identification Authority's discredited Ghana Card to usurp the Electoral Commission's constitutional mandate in compiling a register of voters.
The Minority hereby calls for the immediate reinstatement of Mr Richard Womega and Peace Agbenyo of the Volta Regional Births and Deaths Registry. We also demand that John Yao Agbeko of the National Births and Deaths Registry be recalled to post immediately.
May we remind Government that Article 23 of the Constitution of Ghana imposes an obligation on "administrative bodies and administrative officials to act fairly and reasonably and comply with the requirements imposed on them by law."
We must emphasize that President Akufo-Addo has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution of Ghana and therefore has a sacred duty to adhere to Chapter Five of our Constitution and particularly Article 17 (2) and (3) which frowns upon the kind of shameful discrimination being meted out to the people of the Volta Region.
The unfair targeting of the people of the Volta Region must seize forthwith.
We call on our Chief's and Community leaders to take the opportunity of President Akufo-Addo's current visit to the Volta Region and caution him in very clear terms to desist from the rather perilous, divisive and nation-wrecking mission his Government has so far embarked upon.
We thank you for the audience. We shall now take your questions.
Read in Parliament House on Tuesday 10th July, 2018
The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has reiterated that there is no political agenda underlying the proposed creation of 6 more regions in the country.
According to President Akufo-Addo, “I am not doing it for votes”, stressing that “there are plenty of regions in this country where they don’t vote for me. Why would it be any different if these regions are created?”
The President reassured that “there is no political agenda in this matter, and there is no attempt to create ethnic antagonisms or factions in this exercise. It is meant to try and improve the governance of our people.”
President Akufo-Addo made this known on Tuesday, 10th July, 2018, at the Adaklu Constituency, on day 2 of his 3-day tour of the Volta Region.
Recounting the historical background surrounding the creation of regions in Ghana, President Akufo-Addo noted that, in 1952, the Western and Eastern Regions were created, bringing the total number of regions in Ghana to four (4). The Plebiscite of 1956 ensured that Trans-Volta became the country’s 5th Region.
“After Independence, Kwame Nkrumah’s CPP government created Brong Ahafo Region. They also created the Central Region, and then came the Upper Region created out of the North. So, by the mid-60s, we had now moved from 3 regions to 8 regions. Then Jerry John Rawlings’ PNDC government came and divided the Upper Region into North, Upper West and Upper East,” he said.
The President recounted this historical background to show that “the regional structuring of our country has not been static. It has taken into account developments, population growth, the need to improve the quality of governance and take it closer and closer to the people because that is the most effective governance that we have.”
Having received petitions for the creation of new regions on his assumption of office, President Akufo-Addo referred these petitions to the Council of State for their input, who, after a thorough examination, noted that there was a substantial demand for the creation of new regions.
It was on that basis, he added, that the Justice Brobbey Commission was constituted, in accordance with the Constitution, to probe into the matter.
“They toured the country, they went to the areas of the petition and came back to me that, yes, they had identified a substantial demand from the peoples of those areas for these new regions, and also the need for it; and that therefore I should go ahead and seize the Electoral Commission to organize a referendum for the affected people in the affected areas- and that’s where we are,” he added.
The President reiterated that, as stipulated in the Constitution, at least, 50% of the persons entitled to vote must vote in each of the different referenda, and, of the votes cast, at least 80% must be cast in favour of the creation of a region for the demand to succeed.
“The Constitution wants to be sure that the demand is a genuine, popular, broad base demand, not that a few people have gone to sit in a room somewhere, and cook up their own story that they want their own region. No! That the mass of the people in the region support the idea- that is the constitutional reality, and if it happens, if, indeed, regions come about, please we should not think in any antagonistic way,” the President said.
He continued, “It is not meant to be a prescription for making hostilities between one lot of people and another lot of people. Here in Volta Region, there’s been peace and cohabitation amongst all kinds of different people for a very long time. The creation of the region is not intended to disturb it. In my view, God willing, it will in fact heighten the cooperation, the collaboration and the friendship between the peoples who are living in this Volta Region.”
President Akufo-Addo appealed to residents of the southern part of the Volta Region not to see the potential creation of the Oti Region as a rejection by the peoples of northern Volta.
“That’s not the reason. The reason is that, it becomes an efficient way of organizing the government of our country, and that efficient way inures to all of our benefit. The Southern part, which stays in the traditional Volta Region, with respect, will have more resources for itself rather than having to spread it all over a larger area. They will also have their share and that way, we can then accelerate the development of the country,” President Akufo-Addo added.
The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has revealed that his government has set-up its first cattle ranch in the Afram Plains to help deal with the Fulani herdsmen and cattle menace.
Speaking at Adaklu, on day 2 of his 3-day tour of the Volta Region, at the sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of a multi-purpose youth and sports resource centre, President Akufo-Addo stated that, in fulfillment of the pledge he made in the run-up to the 2016 elections, his government has begun the construction of ranches across the country.
According to President Akufo-Addo, “The first ranch has been established at the Afram Plains, and we have chosen several sites around the country where we are going to establish these ranches in order to bring the cattle into safe, secure environment, so that the desecration of the land you are witnessing here will be a thing of the past.”
The President assured the Chiefs and people of Adaklu that “we have begun the first one, and we will continue. I know one is scheduled to be set up for this area.”
The Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon. Isaac Asiamah, MP, who was present at the ceremony explained that the construction of the multi-purpose youth and sports centres of excellence in the 10 regions of the country is being done at the behest of President Akufo-Addo.
The deliberate provision of these facilities, the Minister stressed, “has never happened before in this country. It is a major intervention by the President in making sure that we have modern sporting facilities across the country.”
With the initial design for the Adaklu Youth and Sports Resource Centre meant to have a 5,000-seating capacity, Hon. Isaac Asiamah, noted that with the intervention of the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa, the Adaklu facility will now have a 10,000-seating capacity.
“This is not just a sports stadium, it is more than a sports stadium because of its additional facilities. When it is completed, it will have a FIFA-standard football pitch, a modern 9-lane athletic track, tennis courts, basketball, handball and volley ball courts, and a modern gymnasium,” he revealed.
Additionally, the facility, the Minister said, has been fitted with a counselling centre, an ICT centre, an entrepreneurship centre and a modern restaurant.
To the President, Hon. Isaac Asiamah stated that “What you are doing, within 4 years of your administration, in terms of sports infrastructure and youth facilities, has never happened in the country. You will be remembered tomorrow as the President who provided modern sporting facilities in the country.”
All ten projects, the Sports Minister assured, will be commissioned April of 2019, after which the next phase of construction for 10 more youth and sports development centres will begin.
On his part, President Akufo-Addo noted that, apart from his government’s determination to create opportunities for Ghanaian youth to find work, “they must have places of recreation and for developing their sporting prowess. This multi-purpose resource centre will respond to that need.”
“We have been keenly monitoring and following your development agenda for the nation, and wish to state that you have done excellently well, well beyond our imagination, considering the state of the economy you inherited. More grease to your elbows. We are proud of you (President Akufo-Addo) as a Chief of the Traditional Area and the President of the Republic of Ghana.”
These were the words of Torgbui Adrakpanya VI, Paramount Chief of the Afife Traditional Area, on Monday, 9th July, 2018, when the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at the end of day one of his tour of the Volta Region interacted with Chiefs from Anlo, Keta, Ketu North and South, Akatsi North and South, North Tongu and Agortime Ziope.
According to the Afife Chief, with the Akufo-Addo government inheriting an economy burdened with huge debts, high fiscal deficit and a slow rate of growth, he, together with the people of the Traditional Area, were surprised the President was able to implement the Free SHS policy, restore the nursing and teacher trainee allowances, and the programme for Planting for Food and Jobs, all within his first year of office.
With the event taking place at Tadzevu, in the Ketu North constituency, Torgbui Adrakpanya VI also expressed the heartfelt appreciation of the people of the Afife Traditional Area to the President for reinstating the deputy Minister for Youth and Sports, Pius Enam Hadzide.
“Thank you, Mr President, for using the due process to investigate him. After the Police report has exonerated him, we say thank you Mr. President,” he added.
Torgbui Adrakpanya VI noted that to accelerate the rate of development of the country, the Akufo-Addo government has upgraded some districts into municipalities, including Ketu North.
They, therefore, used the opportunity of the President’s visit to thank him for creation of the new municipality, and urged him to consider the creation of a new Ketu West District “for faster development of the area”.
Amongst others, Torgbui Adrakpanya VI requested for the establishment of a University of Agriculture in the area to “train young people to provide the human resource in the agriculture and food processing sectors to meet the aspiration of your policy for Planting for Food and Jobs”, and the setting up of a Traditional Council “to facilitate easy administration of the traditional affairs”.
Spokesperson for Stephen Ntim, the defeated chairman aspirant, Kofi Ameyaw has said it would be important for the selflessness and sacrifices of the man to be recognized.
He told Kwame Tutu on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, the man has become a man whose exemplary life has become one well emulating and the youth of the party are learning from him.
The election of Freddie Blay he noted was a decision reached by the delegates to reward his hard work and for helping the NPP win power in 2016 in his capacity as acting chair.
Commenting on the outcome of the delegates’ conference, he said, the exercise was a perfect one because there was nothing like character assassination, and was devoid of vilification.
He also made reference to the comments raised by the UK Conservative party representative, Dr John Hayward and described as it needless.
In his view, the timing for the comments by the foreign was wrong adding, ‘’with regards with what John Hayward said, for me I think the timing was wrong and probably he was carried away because he thought we were that poor to the extent that, we could not have organized such a campaign like what they do abroad. He perceived Ghana to be a poor country and so we could not have organized such a campaign.’’
According to him, he saw the 2012 and 2016 campaigns in the United States and the campaign organized by the candidates were expensive.
‘’So if say we are wasting resources, then you do know what you are talking about. I received personal emails from some people who wanted to be senates and the amount of money they were raising was huge. I am not saying we should waste resources but if you want to comment on such issues, you will need to come with the facts.’’
Meanwhile, he has commended the party for organizing a wonderful congress with negative incidents recorded.
He congratulated the elected national officers and expressed optimism that, about 70 per cent of those who won victory for the party in 2016, have been elected and they will do same for the NPP come 2020.
‘’I am very optimistic that the NPP will come out strong going forward. But there are some issues we that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. There seem to be some sort of apathy, despondency and these issues should be addressed. The party should also be resourced at the constituency levels to ensure the party maintains the spirit that won victory for the NPP in 2016, would be maintained or improved.’’
NDC Chairman for Brekum West in the Brong Ahafo Region, Martin Owusu, has responded to grapevines from the NPP saying that, the newly elected NPP executives will chalk victory for the NPP in 2020.
The rumours claim that the newly elected NPP executives considering their knowledge and expertise would champion the course of victory for the NPP in 2020.
But responding, the chairman said that, these rumours instead of being a threat has made it very easy for the NDC to win the elections in 2020.
“We have known these executives from time in memorial. They cannot make any impact as far as the 2020 elections are considered. Their posts are empty threats to the NDC. Our pursuits to win elections in 2020 have rather become easier”, he stressed.
All NDC delegates should be rest assured of victory and that the NPP cannot prevent us from winning the 2020 polls, he added.

Hot FM’s presenter, Justice Kweku Annan says he is unperturbed at the petition filed against him at the National Media Commission (NMC) by ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Speaking to Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the journalist said he is ready to match Anas boot for boot because he has for far too long entrapped people for his own selfish gains.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas has petitioned the National Media Commission (NMC) to investigate Justice Kweku Annan for denting the image of his Tiger Eye Pi team and that of his mentor, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jr.
In the petition, Anas claimed that the attacks by Mr. Justice Annan, aimed at discrediting Tiger Eye Pi’s investigative works, began prior to and after the public broadcast of the team’s expose on the Ghana Football Association, ‘Number 12’.
According to Anas, the absence of any substantial proof in the Hot FM presenter’s accusations necessitated an undercover work into his sudden zeal to destroy the image of Tiger Eye Pi. Anas recounted how a team member who posed as a relative to a man who had been exposed by Anas and Tiger Eye Pi, was told to pay an amount of GHC 35,000 to support the movement to discredit Tiger Eye Pi.
But reacting to the petition, Justice Kweku Annan said, he entered into a contract with Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye Team to conduct an investigation for them through his [Kweku’s] Hawk Investigation Company- a company that provides consultancy services for state and private owned enterprises.
He described the modus operandi by Anas Aremeyaw Anas as unethical and a slap on the face of investigative journalism.
‘’I have been investigating Anas since 2017 and so nobody should say I started investigating him after the Number 12 was released. It will not make sense for anyone to say Anas bribed me. That is rubbish.’’
He further described Anas as a greedy individual who does not threat his workers well and due that, one Raman has left him because ‘’he always take credit for the any work done by his team. He does not appreciate his other colleagues and always take credit for the work they do.’’
He insisted that the amount of money given him was an amount Anas agreed to pay for an intended documentary he planned to do. However, the Tiger Eye PI Team plotted to use the money as a bait to paint him as a corrupt individual.
‘’This is complete rubbish. I have dared him to bring all the videos they recorded about me. I have dared them. I want them to bring the videos so I will bring my own version. I have also not received any copy of the petition. So today, Anas has petitioned the NMC to investigate me because I said something that has hit so hard
The petition by Anas to NMC said: ‘’ “We posed as a relative to a man who had been exposed by Anas and his team and wanted to see Anas destroyed. We met Mr. Annan on three occasions – twice at Kempinski hotel in Accra and Afrikiko around Flagstaff House area on June 1, June 5 and June 22 respectively. Justice asked us to pay an initial deposit of thirty five thousand cedis to contribute to the project to destroy Anas, Tiger Eye Pi and Mr. Baako and subsequently will come for extra money as the payment advances.’’
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Aduana Stars, Mr. Evans Oppong has said that, his outfit will take government to court if they (Aduana Stars) are not able to play their CAF Confederations Cup matches due to the ban on football by government in Ghana.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Dormaa Ahenkro based club was speaking in an interview with Rainbow Radio’s Nhyiraba kwabena Asirifi when he made those pronouncements.
“I do not think it will come to that but if that is the case, then, we will take government to court and seek for compensation because we have not received a pesewa from government as we play in Africa. But we cannot say that the government has not helped us because the peace alone in the country allowing us to play football is a help because in other places, you cannot play football. We thank government for the peace in Ghana that allows people to go about their businesses without any interference but if we are not allowed to participate in the CAF Confederations Cup due to the Anas expose, we will take government to court to seek for a compensation”.
The two times winners of the Ghana Premiere league were playing in the CAF Champions league but were kicked out and are now in the CAF Confederations Cup.

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has rubbished claims by some leaders and legislators of the National Democratic Congress that the purpose of the National Identification Cards is to disenfranchise some Ghanaians, particularly those from the Volta Region.
According to President Akufo-Addo, residents of the Volta Region, who live close to Togo, are aware of the “Carte nationale d’Identité”, Togo National ID card, and, described as unfortunate Ghana’s inability, for well over 8 years, to have her own National ID card.
To this end, the President noted that Parliament has passed a law, the contents of which are merely being implemented by the National Identification Authority.
“NIA has not refused anything other than what Parliament passed. The legislation that is insisting on passports and birth certificates is not the work of NIA, it is the work of Parliament. It is the law passed by Parliament. So, statements that the NIA is deliberately refusing this or that is unfortunate. It means the person or those who are saying this are not familiar with the legal situation,” the President said.
He continued, “I have no interest in disenfranchising any Ghanaian. The card is meant for Ghanaians, and that is why Parliament, with the full support of both sides of the house, the minority and majority, supported the new law that is being applied by the NIA. So, it is unfortunate that some people are approving and disapproving their own work.”
He noted, therefore, that there is no justification for anyone, let alone Minority MPs, to “come back and then say these particular people are doing this to disenfranchise x, y or z persons. We are not disenfranchising anybody. If you don’t have a birth certificate, passport, all you have to do is to produce a Ghanaian to vouch for you, and you get your card.”
President Akufo-Addo made this known on Monday, 9th July, 2018, when he commissioned the Anlo Shopping Centre, a project completed by the Akufo-Addo Government, at the commencement of his 3-day tour of the Volta Region.
The NIA card, the President stressed, is needed for “our planning and for the organization of our state”, assuring that “by the grace of God, it (the issuance of the NIA cards) will be completed in Akufo-Addo’s time.”
With his government having been in office for 18 months, President Akufo-Addo stated that all the programmes and policies he has implemented has affected and benefitted Ghanaians from every part of the country.
He noted that the first year of the implementation of the Free SHS programme, for example, is ensuring that, for the 2018/2019 academic year, 180,000 more students will be beneficiaries of the Free SHS programme. This, he said, would mean the recruitment of 4,000 more teachers.
“I am determined that every single child in this country, no matter where they are from, no matter whether their father has money or not, will go to school, at least to secondary school level,” he added.
I am commissioning Ghanaian projects
Whilst acknowledging that phase one of the newly commissioned Anlo Shopping Mall was began and completed in the NDC era, President Akufo-Addo noted that phase two of the Anlo shopping centre was started and completed under his administration.
“Togbe, if you remember, when we were campaigning, I said that if, by the grace of God, the Ghanaian people were to give me their confidence, and I was to come in, I will make sure that whatever was started by my predecessor, I will complete it. That is exactly what is happening here today,” he added
The President stressed that “I am not stealing NDC policies, I am completing Ghanaian projects. And, it is the same way that we are going to complete the Keta Sea Defence wall.”
With contractors having abandoned the site for the construction of the sea defence wall, he assured that “active negotiations are going on to pay the contractors so they can come back, and, very soon, you will see that it will start again.”
The same, he said, goes for the Keta Harbour.
“The pledge we made to develop several harbours along the coast, including the Keta Harbour, we will make that a reality,” President Akufo-Addo reassured.
