Volta Regional Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hon. James Gunu has responded swiftly to comments by onetime Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr. Obed Yao Asamoah, that the John Mahama administration abandoned the Volta Region.
His response comes after Dr Obed Yao Asamoah posited that former President John Dramani Mahama did nothing for the Volta Region, which is considered the stronghold of the party, when he was in power.
According to him, Mahama’s failure to establish tangible development projects in the Volta Region resulted in Voltarians voting against the NDC.
He further added that dissatisfaction with the performance of Former President Mahama by the people was evident by the reduced percentage of votes he got in the region compared to his predecessors, the late John Evans Atta Mills and the late Jerry John Rawlings.
