The Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Yao Letsa, has debunked claims that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is insensitive because he has abandoned the tidal wave victims in the Volta Region without issuing a single statement to sympathize with the victims.

According to him, “the President can not be everywhere at the same time, that is why the Constitution asked him to appoint some of us to represent him at the local level.”

He noted that there is the need to strengthen state institutions to live up to expectations when things like the tidal waves in Keta and other parts of the Volta Region occur.

He stated that when our state institutions are strengthened and disasters of this magnitude happen, actions could be taken even without the Minster or the President.

“I can assure the people of the area that the President have them at heart, he hasn’t neglected them, and those of us on the grounds are representing the President,” he stated.

The Regional Minister further indicated that the President will come out with a statement at the appropriate time.
