The Nkoranza Traditional Council at the weekend performed traditional rites to install the First Lady Lordina Mahama, as a queenmother of Nkoranza under a stool name Nana Akosua Fremaa Ampomah Sika I.

According to the council, the installation of the Sompahemaa (good servant), was in honour and recognition of the contributions of the first lady, and her family towards the development of the Nkoranza Municipality.

Flanked by other queen-mothers, Nana Yaa Dudaa Kani, Queenmother of the Nkoranza Traditional Council, took Nana Ampomah Sika I through the traditional rites at the Nkoranza Palace.

Dressed in a white traditional kente cloth, with beads around her ankle and neck with native sandals to match, Mrs Mahama was outdoored at a durbar of chiefs and people of Nkoranza, amidst traditional drumming and dancing.

The colourful ceremony was attended by traditional rulers, ministers of state, Members of Parliament as well as district and municipal chief executives and some senior members of the National Democratic Congress.

Okatakyie Agyeman Kudom IV, Paramount Chief of Nkoranza Traditional Area, said the First Lady had personally supplied the Nkoranza Municipal Fire Command with a fire tender and constructed a police station for the town.

He said through her efforts, construction works on the Jema-Nkwanta-Asekye-Busunya-Atebubu road was steadily progressing.

Nana Akosua Fremaa Ampomah Sika I expressed appreciation to the chiefs and people of Nkoranza for the honour done her and the Mahama family.

She pledged her unflinching support not only towards the socio-economic development of the Nkoranza Municipality but also to the growth of the Nkoranza Queen-mothers Association.
