His Excellency John Dramani Mahama will commission 2 new vessels today. The Ferries- MV DAMEN 1(which is a modular passenger/cargo carrier) and the waterbus MV AKPINI PRINCESS (which is a 50seater high speed passenger carrier) will augment the fleet of the Volta Lake Transport Company (VLTC) and revitalise their operations.
The new vessels will serve the people of Kpando/Agordeke and bring relief to the people of the Afram Plains.
This is a great relief to our farmers, fisherfolks, civil servants, traders, drivers, students, women, the elderly from the Kwahu North area, on the Afram plains and Agordeke, Kpando etc in the Volta Region in terms of accessibility and mobility.
Now, travelling from Kwahu to Afram plains to the Volta Region has been made easier and stress free., Now we save a lot of time travelling from Ashanti Region to Volta Region using the ferry: from Konongo thru Agogo to Donkorkrom to Agordeke or Kpando in the Volta Region.
