Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is urging President Akufo-Addo to be guided by the story of a ‘wicked’ historical Ewe king, Togbe Agorkoli and desist from ‘oppressing’ residents of the Volta Region.

According to him, the President needs to be reminded of the fate of the infamous tyrant when he tried to oppress Ewes in the deployment of the Ghana Armed Forces to the Region.

Residents in the Ketu South Municipality of the Volta region have expressed concern over the increased presence of security personnel in the Region.

Minority spokesperson on Defence and Interior, James Agalga has accused the government of spearheading the said deployment to intimidate residents in the region and prevent them from participating in the upcoming new voters’ registration exercise.

Commenting on the development, Mr Ablakwa said the NPP appears to be ‘biting more than it can chew’ by using intimidating tactics to force Ghanaians into submitting to their whims and caprice.

“President Akufo-Addo can deploy the full compliment of the Ghana Armed Forces in the Volta Region beyond the current shameful deployment but all that cannot stop a determined people. Perhaps, President Akufo-Addo needs lessons on the fate of Torgbui Agorkoli when the latter attempted to oppress the Ewe people.

“The NPP underestimates what it is asking for when it continuously annoys the masses, risks their lives during a pandemic and uses intimidation tactics on voters. Ghanaians love it when you dare them and just when you think your machinations have succeeded. As the Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah succinctly put it: “Ghanaians are not timid people as has been suggested in the foreign press. Far from it. They may be slow to anger & may take time to organise & act. But once they are ready, they strike and strike hard. It pays no one to tamper with Ghanaian freedom & dignity” he wrote.
