During his time as MCE, Mr. Gemegah stated in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that he was committed to ending illicit fishing.

For many years, illegal fishing has had a devastating impact on the area.

“We have met with some fisherfolks, opinion leaders, and others from the three districts along the coast to address this menace, after which punitive measures will be applied for any offender,” he stated

He claimed that discussions were ongoing to stop sand winning at the shore.

The Keta Port, according to Mr. Gemegah, should be finished before President Akufo-Addo leaves office.

He also cited additional ambitions, including the creation of a local plan for reclaimed land projects, such as a sports facility, which he said will be completed by the end of next year.
