The Member of Parliament for Ketu South, Abla Dzifa Gomashie on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, paid a working visit to the Sector Commander of the Ghana Immigration Service, Mr. Dodoo, and the Municipal Chief Executive for Ketu South, Edem Elliot Agbenorwu.

Her visit to the MCE enabled her to discuss through which the two offices could work together in solving problems, needs, and concerns of the people of the Ketu South Municipality.

Other areas of deliberation involve the plight of the people of Agavedzi, continuity of the Sea Defense project, and how to address the sand-winning menace in the constituency.

She also enquired into the operations of Seven Seas Salt Company, and the conflicts between them and the catchment communities.

The discussions between the two leaders were also not without the impact of the border closure on the livelihoods of the people in the constituency, considering the fact that most residents ply their trades, including formal employment in Togo.

Meanwhile, Madam Gomashie also made a passionate appeal to the MCE to ensure that the new Immigration Service Barrier at Atiwuta, near the toll booth, is closed because complaints from persons plying the road suggest that the initial purpose for which this barrier was mounted has been lost; adding that the barrier has rather become a cash cow for persons working there who collect various sums of money from drivers and passengers for their personal gains.

Engaging with Mr Dodoo, the MP emphasized her concern over the continuous stay of the barrier and asked that something immediately should be done about it since it has lost its relevance and intended purpose of creation through the behaviours of some of the service officers.
