Santrokofi and Akpafu Traditional Councils petition government to situate SALL District capital at Santrokofi Gbodome

 

The Santrokofi and Akpafu Traditional councils have jointly petitioned government to situate the capital of the proposed Santrokofi, Akpafu, Lolobi and Likpe (SALL) District in the Oti region at Santrokofi Gbodome.

Addressing a press conference at Santrokofi Gbodome yesterday, the Benkumhene of santrokofi  traditional area, Nana Tetteh Kalai IV, said the decision was arrived at after a careful and objective assessment of the suitability of the four traditional areas within the SALL enclave.

Nana Tetteh Kalai IV, who spoke on behalf of the two traditional councils said Santrokofi  Gbodome stands tall among the others because it has adequate infrastructure for offices and residential purposes.

 He added a vast parcel of land has been donated by patriots of the town for construction of permanent physical structures if the capital is sited at the area.

He said Santrokofi Gbodome, which is a town along the Eastern Corridor road which serves as a major link between the northern and southern sectors of the country will boost socio economic activities in the area than any other location off the international trunk road if it is made the capital.

He said the area, apart from being at peace with all the four traditional areas in the enclave is convenience in terms of reach by the other areas as well as regional and national authorities, a factor he said is a requisite for development.

He called on stakeholders, citizens of the area and the other two traditional authorities to support the course for a prosperous SALL district.

The Paramount Chief of Akpafu Traditional Area, Nana Afrifa Akoamua IV, said the decision taken by the authorities was born out of their quest for development adding the future development of the area largely depends on the construction of the Eastern Railway and Corridor Road.

He said misunderstandings within the Akpafu Traditional Area before, during and after the referendum has been resolved adding his traditional area is prepared to release parcels of land for the course whenever the need arises.
