President John Dramani Mahama has announced that government has allocated a total of GH¢ 27 million for the asphalting of the Kesseh-Ada road in the Greater Accra Region.

He said the Ada area had a lot of tourism sites and the re-construction of the road would open up the area to tourists and investors especially in aquaculture and salt production.

President Mahama said this when he joined the people of Ada to celebrate the Asafotufiami festival of the chiefs and people the Ada traditional area.

Asafotufiami festival, which means firing of muskets, is celebrated annually to mark the heroic performance of their ancestors to safeguard their lands and property from their enemies.

It was attended by ministers of state, Africans in the Diaspora, and politicians from the area.

President Mahama said roads are essential to development and his administration would continue to pursue the road construction agenda to create more opportunities for Ghanaians.

On salt production in the Ada-Songhor area, President Mahama said there is the need to develop modern efficient technology to produce good quality salt that could compete favourable in the global market.

The establishment of the factory, he said would also employ many more youth and reduce the migration of the youth from rural to urban areas for non-existent jobs.

On the pollution of the sea, President Mahama said the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation in collaboration with the Volta River Authority would soon clear the filth from the area.
He called on the farmers to form cooperatives to attract support from government and financial institutions to step up their production.

President Mahama said the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture under the nuclear out-grower scheme would support fish farmers to increase their production levels and subsequently increase the export of their products in coming years.

Nene Abram Kabu Akuoku III, Paramount Chief of the Ada appealed to government to support more brilliant but needy students in the area, who are unable to further their education due to poverty.

He said the deplorable nature of the roads in the area has retarded development in the area and appealed to government to fix them and develop tourism potentials to create more jobs for the youth who migrate to Accra.
