Up to 57 Volta chiefs have declared support for Nana Addo in this year’s general elections
About 57 chiefs in the Volta region have thrown their weight behind the Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo. The chiefs comprising 5 Paramount Chiefs and 52 sub-Chiefs all declared support for the NPP Flagbearer during his ongoing tour of the region.
The 57 Volta chiefs led by Nana Obonbo Sewura Lipuwura II, Paramount Chief of Nkwanta Akyode Traditional Area, complained that the country has suffered enough under the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC). Spokesperson of the chiefs, Paramount Chief of Nkwanta Akyode made this known to the NPP, when the party and its leadership in the Volta Region, paid a courtesy call on him at his palace in Nkwanta.

At the gathering, Nana Obonbo Sewura Lipuwura II, hailed former President Kufuor’s administration, saying that the country’s economy was alive and well during his tenure. He continued that the reverse has been the case since President Mahama assumed office.
According to Nana Obonbo Sewura Lipuwura II, since they the chiefs have both tested the two sides, they now know which one is best. The Paramount Chief endorsed Nana Addo’s 1-District-1-Factory policy, as well as other promises made by the NPP Flagbearer. He added that a land has already been allocated for the actualisation of the 1-District-1-Factory policy in the area.
The NPP has garnered massive supports from Ghanaians in the past few days in the course of its campaign tour. During Nana Addo’s tour of the Ashanti Region, the NPP Flagbearer got the support of not less than 58 Ashanti Chiefs. This was on his first day of his second campaign tour of the region. The party has also gained much grounds in the Volta Region which is the NDC’s stronghold. NPP’s massive support in Volta as a matter of fact, appears to have shaken the foundation of the incumbent party, in the region.
