The Chiefs and Elders of Adaklu Ahunda in the Adaklu District of the Volta Region has fervently called on the government, NGOs and Philanthropist to come to their aid and support the community in development.

The Ahunda community made up of three main towns, Ahunda Kpodzi, Boso and Lugbave that share boundary with Mafi in the Central Tongu District are currently battling and in need of portable drinking water, Electricity and some other vital social amenities for its residents.The larger number of Residence in this farming community along the Ho - Sogakorfe - Accra highway currently rely on dams as source of drinking water.

So far only Boso had few number of Standing Pipes through the efforts of some benevolent natives who tapped it from Asiekpe to the Boso Township.

On the side of electricity power,
According to the elders of  Ahunda, since 1997 when GRIDCO power reached the township, there has not been any extension. And that the community is on a rapid growth with small habitants estates and other villages growing along, there is a need for power to reach those areas as well.    Aside, the community with their growing population and mostly farmers, are calling on the assembly To Help open a market place for them since they can only go to Mafi - Kumasi or Ho the regional market for living, to them there are some  selling points at Kpodzi and Boso already so their motive is how to emerge the two to become one big market in the area to serve as revenue generation to the assembly.Hon. Ganyo Mamah Bismark the assembly member for the Ahunda electoral area stated it that, they have made plans and efforts in fixing the challenges.

In light of that they have writing to Electricity Company of Ghana to extent the electricity to the other parts of the community.
 He also appealed to the government to complete the Six (6) Unit classroom GETFUND project started by the previous government at Kpodzi for about four (4) years now and also open Kindergarten in the community for them.
" When you look into our community children start school at the age of four (4) and we have a lot of them in the towns and when their parents go to the farm they leave them behind playing" He said
Hon. Ganyo Mamah again called on the District Chief Executive to commission the completed police station that was handed over by the contractor to the community for use.

Togbe Tatra V the Warlord of Ahunda Boso also called on the Agric department in the Assembly to bring the government flagship programme Planting and Rearing for food and job to the Ahunda community since the indigenes are mostly farmers, to him, this will create job avenue to the hard working youth in the area.
"We have been hearing of the of the policy but we don't know what it is where it is, the people in charge should come out tell us where they are doing.
They should bring the policy so we can practice because some of us are already into farming especially animal rearing.Togbe in another view challenged the Department of Town and City planing in the Adaklu District assembly, stating that he is not seeing their work in regard to the community planing.
 " For me, I am not seeing the work of Town Planing in the District since the only thing they do is to go round when people are building in their houses, asking them for the building permits and Property rates whiles they are to make sure they give directions to where various building structures are to be situated, where gutters, market are to be even direct where streets are to pass in the town before and make sure they enforce their regulations before chasing individuals for the property rates and building permits.
Moreover they failed to educate the community on their regulations," He noted.
