0

Torgbe Sri III the Awoamefia of Anlo state has appealed to the president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to at least build a habour in Anlo under his reign as the traditional ruler before joining his ancestors someday.

Speaking at this year’s Hogbetsotso festival at Anloga, Torgbe expressed worry over the increasing unemployment rate in the Keta Municipality and looked worried in his appeal to the government to at least consider fulfilling his long-held dream for his people.

“The youth in Anlo are unemployed due to lack of factories. Tomatoes of farmers continue to rot away since we don’t have a means of preserving them. A factory in this municipality would have salvaged this situation and bring some relief and cash to our farmers. I’ve been dreaming of a harbour for ages now and it will be my joy that I see one built for my people before I leave this earth”, literally went on his knees begging the government

He again reminded the president of the bad road network in the Volta Region saying “our roads are in very terrible state and it will be proper you fix them for us”.

Torgbe Sri III was of the hope a lot more needs to be done for his people and that must be done in time to salvage the increasing unemployment figures which is a major threat to the peace of the area.
