President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has asserted that even though residents of Ada are not enthused about the New Patriotic Party, his government has prioritised them in distributing the national cake.

He says his administration has ensured that Ada benefits from government projects like the One District One Factory, Agenda 111, improved road infrastructure and the nationwide Free SHS among other developmental projects although the NPP has been performing poorly when it comes to votes in the area.

The President, during his speech as the Special Guest of Honour at the 2023 Ada Asafotufiami Festival in Ada, mentioned what his government has done and is doing for Ada people to know that he has them on his heart.

He mentioned among his achievements, the situation of a High Court for the residents, which he says is the first time in the history of the area where such a feat in the legal realm has been attained for the residents.

“About the development of the road infrastructure, a lot has been done about roads in the country but there is still a lot more that would be done and you can be sure that our government will not leave out the people of Ada.

“The same way the health facilities challenges that you’re facing are things that we are addressing systematically. The District Chief Executive spoke about the establishment of an Agenda 111 project in Sege, in this same Ada East district which is almost 40% complete and my understanding is that by the end of this season, it will become complete.

“I’m happy we are now for the first time in the history of the district a high court here in Ada to advance the rule of law in our country. I’m also happy that the gala programme which the Ministry of Education is doing with the World Bank to address poor educational standards in some of our less well-endowed schools is also working here in the Ada area and I believe that very soon we’ll see an improvement in the educational outcome of schools in these areas and that the poor outcomes that you’ve had up till today will be a matter of the past.

“I’m happy also that the 1D1F initiative has brought a salt processing factory here in Ada and also a business resource centre. I’m saying all of these to let you know that you’re on my heart. You don’t vote for me but I care about you and I want you to remember that all the time,” portions of his statement indicated.
