In what appears to be a conciliatory sentiment, the President of the Oti Regional House of Chiefs hinted, “It is tragic that Oti didn’t contribute any seat to your triumph notwithstanding all that your administration accomplished for the district. We can just apologize and urge you to put this behind you and spotlight on your formative plan for Oti so individuals can flaunt your inheritance nearby.”

The opinions of the famous Chief appear to repeat the objection of the occupants of the district after the NPP lost its main seat (Krachi East) after the December 2020 races.
Political examiners had projected that the NPP would get somewhere around three parliamentary seats, especially in Krachi East, Krachi West, and Krachi Nchumuru thinking about the making of Oti district and the plenty of improvement projects that had been focused on the space.
The party trusted Nkwanta North’s seat could likewise be won.
Albeit the NPP’s votes expanded significantly when contrasted with past races; they were sufficiently not to get a solitary seat out of the eight seats of the district.
That regardless, the Krachiwura asked the President not to be disheartened. All things being equal, he ought to be undaunted and focus on following through on his vows to the locale.
“That is the magnificence of the vote-based system. Being a shrewd lawmaker, I trust you will see the value in the elements of the issues,” he added.
He complimented the President for his determination that prompted the formation of the Oti locale; focusing on that “we don’t lament battling for our won area.”
As per him, yet for the new area, the numerous improvement projects across the locale won’t have occurred.
In his reaction, President Akufo-Addo said despite the NPP’s failure to get a seat nearby, he is focused on leaving an enduring inheritance for the Oti Region, especially having an extension over River Oti.
“I have made the guarantee and I will make sure that it is done. I will ensure it (the Oti Bridge) is my heritage for this locale. We will do it. Just as the Technical University. We will guarantee they are done,” President Akufo-Addo said.
