Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has assured the people of South Tongu in the Volta Region of a better life in his second coming.
Addressing residents of Sogakope over the weekend, Mr Mahama also announced that the road along the Volta River passing in front of Hotel Cisneros and Holy Trinity Spa will be constructed to help boost the development of tourism and hospitality in the district.
“We will build a new market for Sogakofe. Sogakofe is a the center of tourism and so we will build Cisneros road along the water so that we can have tourist resorts so that the young people in Sogakofe can find work to do in the tourist resorts, I want to give you all a better life,” he said to a rapturous response from the gathering most of whom are traders.
The former President in his address committed himself to ensure the youth of Sogakope benefit from the tourism potential of the area if he is elected President again.
Residents of Sogakofe have for some time now, been agitating for good roads, particularly the Lower Volta Bridge, which they say has become a death trap due to the rusty expansion and contraction joints.
