The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, on Sunday assured the chiefs and people of the Ada traditional area that the next NDC government will continue with the sea defence project to protect communities along the Ada to Ningo Prampram coastline.
This will include the Kablevu area, Lolonya, Goi, Anyamam, Akplabanya, Wokumagber to Ningo Prampram,” Mahama stated.
Present at the church service were Nene Abrem Kabu Akuaku III, Paramount Chief of Ada and President of the Ada Traditional Council, chiefs and queens of the Ada traditional area, the Local Council of Churches and citizens of Ada.
Mr Mahama congratulated the people of Ada for sustaining the annual celebration of the festival.
He noted that Ada, located in the Greater Accra Region, is one of the few places where their annual festival and the attendance of its citizens have continued to see a yearly growth in interest and participation.
He challenged the chiefs and people to move to the next stage of developing a sustainable, local economic blueprint that will harness the opportunities of the Ada area, which include salt mining, tourism, vegetable and fruit farming.
“You have one of the most resourced traditional areas of this country, and I urge you to move to the next step. Apart from the tourism and hospitality business opportunities, this area has also proven to be a fruit and vegetable basket,” he advised.
