His comment comes on the back of a two-week ultimatum handed to government by the paramount chiefs of the area to fix their roads to avert any possible boycott of political activities in the region.

Traditional leaders in the Ho municipality on Tuesday, September 27, threatened to ban political activities in the region if government failed to fix roads linking communities within 2 weeks.

Mr Kpodo revealed he was amazed by the recent development of the chief of Kpenoe Traditional Area, Togbe Kotoku XI over the latter’s agitations against government.

Speaking at a press conference yesterday, the Paramount chief of Kpenoe Traditional Area, Togbe Kotoku XI, warned that failure to commence works on their roads would leave them with no option than to block the roads to vehicular traffic.

Although a bulldozer was seen clearing shoulders of the roads, the chiefs suspect the situation might be one of the government’s gimmicks for political gains in the election year.

Speaking on an Accra-based Kasapa FM, Benjamin Kpodo stated that he was taken aback by the harsh decision of the chiefs of the area.

According to him, the Mahama-led administration is working assiduously in fixing the deplorable roads in the area.

He added that the contractor assigned to the road has started work on the construction of the said road.

“I have been engaging them (chiefs). All documents covering the project we’re undertaken I have shown it to them when I recently met them. The Assemblyman-Togbe Kotoku XI, for instance, has access to all the documents and I am surprised that these things are happening. Maybe because the other road (there are two Lots on one paper) went earlier they think that they will complete that one and leave theirs, but I have constantly assured them that we’ll do it. And fortunately the second contractor has shown up and he’s clearing the road. Let’s give him time to work on the road,” he said
