JJ Rawlings appeals for work to restart on Volta roads with speed


Ho, Nov. 14, GNA –
Former President Jerry John Rawlings has appealed to the Minister of Roads and
Highways to urgently instruct contractors working on the main road entering the
Ho township to restart work.

He noted that roads
in some parts of the Region were in very deplorable states and needed urgent
attention to prevent road crashes and other inconveniences road users faced.

President Rawlings
made the appeal when he signed the book of condolence for the late Victoria
Adzagli Ametefee, wife of Mr Henry K. Ametefee, Volta Regional Chairman of the
National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Ho.

He also called for
the Eastern Corridor segment to be given maximum attention to facilitate
movement of goods and services.

Former President Rawlings
said the linkages between road infrastructure and economic growth could not be
detached from each other and prayed that urgent attention be given to roads in
the Region.

He called for love
in families, saying, “it was a wrong time to lose one’s wife.”

President Rawlings
donated US$1,000 to the family and promised to be present at the burial and
funeral service. 

Mr Ametefee said the
presence of President Rawlings had assuaged his pain and hoped the whole NDC
fraternity, political partners, family and friends would assist him to give a
befitting burial to his wife.

Reverend Samuel K.
Dzamesi, Ho Central Pastor, Church of Christ and Proprietor of Sonrise
Christian High School, on behalf of the bereaved family thanked President Rawlings
for his presence to commiserate with them.

Mr James Gunu,
Regional Secretary, NDC, on behalf of the Party thanked the Founder of the NDC
for showing leadership and empathising with the bereaved family.
