Recently, there was news that some people were planning to demonstrate against the rehabilitation of the Songor Lagoon. According to reports, a group known as ASLA, with the support of some chiefs and opinion leaders, planned to stage the demonstration in Accra. However, the people of Ada have shown their disapproval of the demonstration, as evidenced by the fact that only one bus left with a few operators, while the other seven buses were empty.

For the most part, it is clear that the people of Ada have accepted the need for change and the efforts to rehabilitate the Songor Lagoon. This is something they have been yearning for over the years, and they are not going to allow anyone to sabotage the process.

It is important to note that the petition presented to the government was signed by one Ebenezer Adjaotor, an NDC propagandist. It raises questions about his role and capacity in signing the petition. Also, it is worth asking why the so-called chiefs, who allegedly supported the demonstration, did not sign the petition.

Furthermore, we need to ask who ASLA is and whether it is an existing group or a newly formed group by the NDC after the lease was granted to frustrate the government and the investor. There is a suspicion that some elements within the NDC are using the Songor issue to make the government unpopular within the Sege constituency.

The use of the Songor issue by the NDC raises more questions. Is it that the politicians want to destroy the traditional governance system in Ada? Why are they bringing so much disrespect to the chiefs of Ada? Is it that they are using Ebenezer Adjaotor to gain some political sympathy using the Songor as leverage?

It is essential to state that this demonstration does not represent the voice of the people of Ada. The people of Ada are not against the rehabilitation of the Songor Lagoon. They believe in the need for change and are willing to work with the government and the investor to achieve this goal.

In conclusion, it is important to focus on the bigger picture and not allow political propaganda to derail the efforts to rehabilitate the Songor Lagoon. The people of Ada should be allowed to have a say in the matter and not be used as pawns in political games.
