Torgbiga Amenya Fiti reiterated calls for unity among the chiefs and elders of the traditional area, calling on them to avoid unnecessary squabbles and rancor “which will only divide is and retard our forward march as a people.”
Registrar of the Volta Regional House of Chiefs, Harry Anthony Attipoe congratulated the newly inducted Chief and the co-opted members of the council for their new duties and responsibilities and urged them to work hard towards the achievement of the set goals of the Council.
