Chiefs must lead exemplary lives
A MEMBER of the Council of State and President of the Centre Regional House of Chiefs, Daasebre Kweebu Ewusie VII, has called on chiefs not only to lead exemplary lives, but also initiate meaningful development projects to improve the living conditions of their people.
Daasibre Ewusie, who is also the Omanhen of Ageadxe Dominase Traditional Area, made the call when he launched activities in connection with the Golden jubilee celebration of the Omanhen of the Aumako Traditional Area, Ogyeabo Okokodurfo Kwamena Hammah Abaio II, at a ceremony at Ajumako.
He commended Nana Ababio for his courage, zeal and steadfastness in passing through thick and thin to steer the affairs of the traditional area. Daasebre Ewusie prayed for God’s blessing and protection, as well as good health for Nana Ababio to enable him to live longer to implement his development vision for the area.
He also called for total support from the Omanhen’s subjects and the entire citizenry in order to put his dreams into action.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam, Mr. Ato Forson, was full of praise for the Ajumako Omanhen’s role towards the creation of a separate administrative district for the area over 20 years ago.
He called for unity among all chiefs in the Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam District, and appealed to him to do all in his power to settle the chieftaincy disputes in the district to promote peace and unity.
The MP mentioned a number of projects on the drawing board to uplift the constituency.
They include the Nkwantanum-Assin Manso and Ajumako-Bisease-Anyinasu roads, which had been put on tender for rehabilitation.
Mr. Forson assured the people that the Ajumako Health Centre would soon be upgraded to a district hospital.
Earlier in a welcoming address, the Chairman of the Omanhen’s Golden Jubilee Planning Committee, Mr. John Amissah Arthur, appealed to the people of the Ajumako Traditional Area to unite solidly behind Nana Ababio to ensure the speedy development of the area.
Nana Ababio extended a hand of friendship to all those who might have incurred his displeasure or might have been aggrieved by his disciplinary actions taken in the traditional area.
He called for forgiveness by all and sundry, saying “I have unconditionally forgiven anyone who has offended me during my 50 years reign as Omanhen; we should bury our differences, forget the past and forge ahead”.
