The Presidential Candidate of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, believes that the Volta region is the cleanest region in Ghana. He made these and other remarks as the Apam Foforↄ (New Covenant) National Campaign Tour struck the Volta Region.
The tour started in Abor, Keta, Anloga and Aflao at which CPP Parliamentary candidates for those areas respectively were introduced to excited gatherings. It will continue to Battor, Mepe, Adidome and Sogakope and shall consist in a nine day tour of visits of every single district and constituency in the Volta Region. So far the “Green” campaign has completed preliminary tours of Upper East, Upper West, Northern, Brong Ahafo, Ashanti, and parts of Eastern, Western, Central and Greater Accra Regions.
He stated that he had observed the attempts to deal with the waste collection crises nationwide and that in the Volta region, having visited the Region on numerous occasions as General Secretary, he had seen very little rubbish by the road side and this positive trait must be investigated and emulated. Communities must take control of their own environment. In governance, responsibilities come with duties on all sides.
In this southern sector, he referred to the fact that Ghana is a wealthy nation with oil, gold, gas, timber, cocoa, bauxite, diamonds, fertile lands, access to water resources, strong and intelligent human beings and that this sector of the Volta Region as well as it being rich in farming and fishing there was also white gold (salt). The CPP, he said, “recognising the time honoured approach will focus on the use of cooperatives to maximise revenue for ordinary individuals, families and communities.
Also in the entourage is the National First Vice Chairperson – Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim, the Regional Chairman – Mr. Thomas Ntumy, Prof. Emmanuel Bobobee, National Coordinator – Rashid Alao, the Regional Organizer – Mr. Paul Nuwordu, and other prominent party members in the region.
