Omanhene rallies colleagues to focus on development
The Omanhene of Ejisu Traditional Area, Oguakro Afrane Okese, has rallied his colleague chiefs to do more to bring progress and fight poverty in their communities.
He said they should provide leadership by mobilizing the people to tackle the socio-economic challenges facing them because “this is the way to make chieftaincy relevant and sustain the loyalty of the people.”
Oguakro Afrane Okese said this when Nana Obeng Panin II, the Chief of Nyantaase, swore the oath of allegiance to him at his Ejisu Palace.
He counseled the new chief to carry himself with dignity, eschew arrogance and to uphold the rich culture and traditional values of the people and to
avoid doing anything likely to create image problems for the chieftaincy institution.
Nana Obeng Panin, 60, and a retired engineer of Noble Gold Mines at Bibiani, has served as community head (Odikro) of the Nyantaase since year 2005 and his elevation is a reward for hard work, dedicated service and good leadership.
He pledged to work with passion to promote education and to face-lift the community.
