He said the investors had already done the initial feasibility studies and had provisional license from the Energy Commission to construct the dams in Dodi Papase, Wli Waterfalls, Tsatsadu Waterfalls, Hohoe and Afife among others.

Togbe Afede revealed that the project would be the first in the country to bring huge socio-economic opportunities to the people in the region.

He therefore urged the chiefs in the region to be selfless in pushing the development agenda forward.

Togbe Afede said the region’s agricultural development agenda was also on course and appealed to chiefs to release land for the success of that project aimed at creating jobs and promoting food security.
