The Agbogbomefia of the Asogli State in the Volta Region stated: “There is no room for apathetic spectators” hence the need for “every Ghanaian to lend their support” to the development of the country.

He stated that the task of developing the country cannot be accomplished by few, hence a greater collaboration between the presidency and the chieftaincy institution.
