The Governor expressed fear that many people who have the capacity may not be willing to come back to the villages and do investment for fear of the unknown, appealing however that people should not be distracted by the unfortunate incident.

He said:

“You can see in Anyiin alone, we have Ashi Polytechnic, Ashi International Market, Micro Finance Bank, Rice Mill and these are the things that we are woeing investors to come and do because government does not have the resources to do it alone,” Governor Ortom stated.

“Government does not have the capacity to do these alone and Dr. Terkura Suswam saw it but unfortunately, he had to meet his death right here in Anyiin struggling to work and add value to the economic development of the community.”
