The Gyaasehene of Abotoase, Nana Ansah Asiedu, has appealed to the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to resume the payment of compensations due them following the construction of the Volta Lake, which he argues has claimed their lands.
Mahama will surely leave office - Volta chief
Nana Ansah Asiedu made this known when the NPP flag bearer paid a courtesy call on him at his palace at Abotoase, in the Biakoye constituency as part of his five- day tour of the Volta Region.
According to him, president Mahama has refused to pay them compensation ever since he resumed office.“Kufuor paid some compensation, Atta Mills continued the payment, but President Mahama has refused to continue the payment,” he noted.“When he set up the judgment debt committee, whether the compensation package was taken to parliament or not, he just decided to stop the payment. We are, therefore, in court over the matter.
“Mahama may not pay our compensation before he leaves office and he will surely leave office. That is why we are appealing to Nana Akufo-Addo that when he comes to power he should continue to repay our compensation. We are praying for him and we know by December 7th God will give him victory,” he said.
