The Paramount Chief of Tema (Tema Mantse), Nii Adjei Kraku II, has appealed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo not to abandon the useful projects started by the erstwhile adminstration.
According to him, the incumbent government must continue the projects by former President John Mahama.
He said “I have decided to appeal to the hardworking President for the good of the country to pick up from where he predecessor left off.
The paramount chief added that “The campaign season is different from the governance period. During the campaign we can all disagree and split hairs but once you are in office, you snap out of the campaign mood and face the reality.”
He said policies in the erstwhile government, such as the provision of public infrastructure including schools, hospitals and factories were an inheritance for the Ghanaian people.
Nii Adjei Kraku II said “The Tema Development Company (TDC), the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) and the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) embarked on very good projects in the NDC era for the benefit of the people and it would be a good idea if the current government could please continue with the projects.”
The Tema Mantse said President Akufo-Addo has put out the right signals by meeting with all his predecessors which was good for the nation.
He also thanked the President for appointing a number of people from the Tema Metropolis to serve in his government.
Members of Parliament for Tema East and West and the Administrator of the District Assembly Common Fund, former Tema West MP, Irene Naa Torshie Addo were appointed by Nana Addo to serve in his government.
“I will also like to thank the President profusely for listening to the voice of the people of Tema and nominating an indigene for the position of Metropolitan Chief Executive for Tema,” he said.
