No deer catch at this year’s Aboakyer festival
A large number of people who attended this year’s Aboakyer festival in Winneba were disappointed as none of the two Asafo Companies was unable to bring a live Deer to the durbar grounds.
At about 1110 hours the Tuafo No. 1 Asafo Company came to announce their failure to make a catch, followed by the Dentsifo No 2 later with the same story.
When the news got to the people they started leaving the grounds unceremoniously because the Central Regional Minister, Mr Samuel Sarpong who was first attending the festival had delivered his speech.
It would be recalled that in 2010, a similar thing occurred.
Mr Sarpong expressed concern that the festival that had gained international recognitions is characterised by conflicts and huge resources are spent on security personnel.
This, he said could not package Aboakyer as a tourism product.
He implored Effutus to find lasting solution to the protracted traditional and chieftaincy disputes that has the potential of creating differences in families that descend from the same lineage.
This is the most opportune time to channel the energies of the youth into useful ventures, he said.
The Effutu Municipal Chief Executive, Nii Ephraim said the implementation of prudent policies by the government has won Ghana the reputation as the fastest growing economy in Africa.
He said it was in this regard that the country has received approval to enjoy the second compact of the Millennium Challenge Account.
NOT SURPRISE NOT SURPRISE BECAUSE OF RAPID DEVELOPMENT AND AGAIN GET SOME FROM OTHER AFRICAN COUNTRIES TO RELEASE THEM INTO WILD ESPECIALLY OTHER SOUTHERN, WESTERN SUBSAHARA.
