Chief says he will not tolerate poliiticians who incite the youth to cause trouble

 

Gomoa Ajumako (C/R), Sept. 28, GNA – Obrempong Nyanful Krampah XI, Omanhen of Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Area, has appealed to chiefs and opinion leaders in the area to report any politician who would incite the youth to cause trouble before, during and after the December 7 election.

He said his people were peace loving people who would not entertain anybody out to incite mayhem and he would not entertain any politician who made hate speeches and insults in his traditional area.

Obrempong Nyanful Krampah gave the warning at the celebration of “Eguadoto” festival held at Gomoa Ajumako. The festival is used by the Omanhen to purify his stool.

He appealed to the government to increase the remuneration of paramount chiefs to enable them to discharge their duties effectively.

He advised parents to invest in the education of their children, saying; “we can only come out of abject poverty through quality education to our children.” Obrempong Nyanful Krampah appealed to parents and guardians to be in close contact with teachers of their children and wards to know how the children were performing in school.

He urged the people to use celebration of festivals to plan for the development of their communities, adding; “you must not sit down unconcerned and expect the government to do everything for you.”

He commended the two District Chief Executives, Mr Theophilus Aidoo-Mensah for Gomoa West and Mr Isaac Kingsley Ahunu-Armah for Gomoa East for their development initiative and their support for the traditional area.
