Organised Labour has urged the public to take a fresh look at the New Force Movement’s ambitious plan to extend the sea to Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

This comes after the leader of the movement, Nana Kwame Bediako, also known Cheddar, in a TV interview reaffirmed his commitment to his vision of dredging the sea to the Ashanti Region, asserting that its realisation is feasible if he is elected.

Addressing the media on May 23, the group clarified that the policy, advocated by the New Force Movement’s leader, has been widely misunderstood, pointing out its feasibility and the advantages it could bring.

At a recent engagement with the Trade Union Congress (TUC) of Ghana, where the New Force Movement outlined its 16 industrial policies, TUC Secretary-General Dr. Anthony Yaw Baah voiced his endorsement for political figures who propose transformative policies for the nation.

He underscored Organised Labour’s readiness to support projects that have the potential to yield substantial developmental benefits.

“If you look at the river systems, when you dredge the Pra, Tano, Bia and the rest, it easily links to Cape Coast. And his point was that why should we use our roads to cut things? We can actually use our river systems, once we dredge properly, the vessels can use it, and they can transport it from Accra to the North.

“God has given us a huge river that we are not using because many people don’t really understand that policy.”
