Togbe Dorglo Anumah VI, Paramount Chief /President of the Avenor Traditional Council, and the entire Avenor Traditional Council wish to commend President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his inclusion of Hon. Dr. Archibald Letsa and Hon. John Peter Amewu, in the first batch of Ministerial nominees.
The Avenor Traditional Council is of the firm belief that the President’s decision to maintain Hon. Dr Letsa as Volta Regional Minister (RM) designate and to appoint Hon. John Peter Amewu as Minister designate for the Ministry of Railways Development is born out of the effective and efficient manner in which both sons of the Volta region have discharged their affairs over the past four (4) years.
The Avenor traditional Council has particularly enjoyed working with Hon. Dr. Letsa; whose work as RM has directly impacted our Area, and we are looking forward to more of his skillful coordination and management of affairs as the Volta Regional Minister in his second term in office.
We fondly recall that while Hon. Kofi Dzamesi took the lead, amongst other actors, in the elevation of the Avenor Traditional Area to Traditional Council status, Hon. Dr. Letsa was instrumental in the elevation of the Akatsi South District Assembly to Municipal Assembly status.
These are historic developments which, we are proud to say, will go a long way to contribute to positive socio-economic outcomes for the Chiefs and People of the Avenor Traditional Area.
The Avenor Traditional Council is eagerly looking forward to the smooth confirmation of the Minister designates, so that their good works can continue to positively impact the lives of the good people of the Akatsi South Municipality and the Volta region as a whole.
We wish to use this opportunity to call on the President to appoint other equally skilled and experienced son and daughters of the Volta Region to national positions; in line with his agenda of promoting inclusiveness and national cohesion.
In this regard, it is the hope of the Avenor Traditional Council that the President will appoint Hon. Kofi Dzamsei to a position where the Volta Region and the entire country can again benefit from his rich experience.
