Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Honourable Edward Doe-Adjaho, has bemoaned the total neglect of various tourist sites in the Anlo Traditional Area of the Volta Region.
He noted that the neglect of tourist sites in the region has rendered majority of young men and women jobless.
He made this observation at the official launch of the 54th Hogbetsotso festival at the forecourt of the Banquet Hall in Accra recently.
Highlighting on the theme of the festival; “Exploring and Expanding the Tourist and Historical Sites of Anlo to Enhance Development,” he said the “Toko Atorlia,” Wenya’s Wells Xan Budo and the monkey sanctuary among others were potential tourist sites that must not be abandoned.”
The festival is to commemorate the final movement of the Ewe people from the Republic of Togo to Anlo in the Republic of Ghana.
According to him, the theme for the festival was to chart a path of solidarity, peace and reconciliation amongst the people of Volta Region.
He however, lamented the omissions of the Keta Harbour, Eastern Corridor Road among other projects in the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) manifesto.
He also used the occasion to advise the people of the Volta Region who recently warned the NDC government to construct the deplorable roads in the region to have patience.
