Akufo-Addo installed Togbe Dzigbordifia I in Volta Region


The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has been installed a chief at Afife in the Volta Region.

The opposition leader was crowned as the Chief of Patience under the stool name, Togbe Dunenyo Dzigbordifia I, by the Traditional Leaders and people of Afife.

The ceremony took place, Sunday, when the former Attorney-General made a stopover at Afife Township while on his way to Aflao for regional rally to conclude his 2016 campaign in the region.

Torgbui Adzaklo V, President of the Afife Traditional Area, stated that the conferment of the chieftaincy title on Nana Akufo-Addo was in recognition of his contribution towards national development, justice and peace over the years.

“You have exhibited total commitment to peace, patience, selflessness, transparency, accountability, incorruptibility. In this regard, we confer on you the title Torgbui Dunenyo Dzigbodi I”, Torgbui Adzaklo V said.

According to Torgbui Adzaklo V, the decision by Nana Akufo-Addo to put Ghana first by resorting to the use of the courts in the aftermath of the disputed 2012 elections, as well as accepting the split 5-4 verdict of the Court, even though he disagreed with the verdict, was enough proof of the NPP flagbearer’s love for Ghana.

“You have remained patient and bided your time. This time, however, we are sure your patience and your love for Ghana will pay off”, the Chief added.

Accepting the honour, Akufo-Addo promised not to fail the people of Afife if he becomes President of the land.
