The Volta Regional Minister makes 'history' as his enemies failed

Dr Archibald Yao, the acting Volta Regional minister, the man who until a week ago, had been reappointed with fierce opposition from some protesters in his own party, is back with a statement gracefully cheering his historic reappointment as minister-designate for Volta Region.

Pictures of thousands who oppose his reappointment as Volta Regional minister-designate in demonstrations a week ago in Ho, the Volta Regional capital.

Dr Archibald Yao, in his acceptance remarks, explains that his reappointment by the president is in itself an expression of confidence in him.

He calls on Voltarian and investors to do business in the region while admitting that his reappointment is subjected to the approval of parliament, meaning the battle unleashed by those who opposed his reappointment in the first place, is not yet over.

Excerpts of the full statement below;

With a heart of unqualified gratitude, I wish to thank H.E. The President of The Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for once again reposing confidence in me by the renomination as the Volta Regional Minister.

I am humbled by the renomination and more importantly, by the display of confidence in me.

I wish therefore to state unequivocally that, when approved by Parliament, I shall continue to pursue and serve the agenda of H.E. The President and government in the Volta Region at all times to the best of my knowledge and ability.

Furthermore, I shall continue to operate an "open-door policy" in the running of my office, where I shall be readily available to all the people of the Region.

In this regard, I shall continue to build bridges and not walls while pursuing the development of the Region.

It is not lost on me that we need to work together as people of this Region in ensuring its development as envisaged by the President and all of us.

I therefore wish to assure all, especially the good people of the Region and others who would wish to invest in the Region, of my preparedness and availability to work with them towards achieving this one goal of having a more developed Region, able to provide more jobs to her people in an environment of enhanced socio-economic infrastructure.
