Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom

Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, the 2008 flagbearer of the Convention Peoples’ Party (CPP) on Wednesday charged the Oguaa Traditional Council to use the Fetu Afahye Festival to attract investors.

Dr. Nduom said the Festival was of significant value not only to the people of Cape Coast but the country at large.

He said the festival must be well packaged to add more value to it to source investments to the Metropolis to create jobs for the youth.

He made the call when he presented assorted drinks, food items and a ram worth GHC2,000, together with a cash of GH¢3,000 to the Council at the “Emintsimadze” Palace in support of this year’s Oguaa Fetu Afahye Festival.

The week long festival observed with a colloquium for the youth, Oman purification rites and a clean-up exercise, would be climaxed with a colourful durbar of chiefs on Saturday, September 3.

Dr. Nduom, who is a native of Elmina, in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) Municipal Area, pledged his continuous support for the Oguaa Fetu Afahye Festival so long as it promotes peace, unity and development.

On politics, he urged Ghanaians to endorse the CPP once and for all in the 2012 general elections, saying that, it was time for the CPP to rule the country, as Ghanaians have tasted the regimes of both the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Osambarima Kwesi Atta II, Oguaamanhen commended Dr. Nduom for his immense support to the Council and love for Cape Coast and said the Council appreciates his efforts very much, particularly for the significant part he plays in the country’s economy.

He said Dr Nduom had set up numerous companies that had created a lot of jobs for the people in the country and added that the Council will continue to pray for him to succeed in all his endeavours.
