The Member of Parliament for Ho Central says the infrastructural development in the Volta Region will be abandon in the region if the New Patriotic Party wins the 2016 election.

Benjamin Kpodo claimed the Kofi Annan Peace Keeping Centre was to be located in the Volta region when the NDC lost the 2000 election.

He said upon assuming power in 2001, the John Kufour administration relocated the project to Accra.

He was speaking at the inauguration of the Ho Central Campaign Taskforce of the NDC Thursday.

“From Akoefe to Tanyigbe Etoe, a land was acquired to construct the Kofi Annan Peace Keeping Centre during Rawlings regime.

"When we lost elections in 2000, he appointed his brother Addo Kuffo as the Minister of Defence and the first thing they did was to move the project to Accra," he said.

He continued: “I have been advising you that, you are not careful and you allow our government to lose, know that all these projects being carried out by the NDC would terminate; it would terminate.”
