The Paramount Chief of the Aflao Traditional Area, Torgbuiga Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti V, says infrastructure development and institutional reforms are not enough on their own.

According to him, what undermines the positive result of these reforms and development is that the effects of the progress and the achievements made are not felt by all segments of the society. 

Torgbuiga Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti V made the comment during the celebration of 49th edition of the Godigbe Za and his 25th anniversary on the throne.

He noted that, some citizens may not directly feel the positive impact on their living conditions.

“God knows how much I suffer personally when a fraction of the youth, even if it’s one percent of the Ghanaian population endures hardships and lives in poverty at the Aflao main border,” Torgbuiga Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti v said.

Torgbuiga Fiti noted that he has attached particular importance to human development programs, social policies and the need to respond to the youth’s pressing concerns. 

“There will be no peace of mind for me so long as we have not properly tackled the hurdles faced and found the right solutions to development and social issues,” he said.

He noted that the above cannot be achieved without a comprehensive vision, qualified human resources or without meeting the conditions required to carry out planned projects.

 He urged government to as a matter of urgency help fix the very deplorable roads in Ketu South, especially the Komla Dumor road which leads to the new community day SHS and the Diamond Cement road, so that the economic activities of the area can be improved. 

He also asked for other developmental projects like the provision of water for some communities in the municipality. 

Hundreds of residents home and abroad as well as invited Traditional leaders from West African Countries and other dignitaries graced the 2022 Godigbe Za held in the heart of Aflao.
