The Twafohene of Nkaseim Nana Sarfo Kantanka has on behalf of the Chiefs and people of Nkaseim and Ahafo commended President Akufo-Addo for ensuring that their over 40-year wait for a Region is over.
Speaking at a durbar of Chiefs and people of Nkaseim in the Asutifi South Constituency during the visit of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Tuesday, Nana Sarfo Kantanka said, for over 40 years, Ahafoman had unsuccessfully pursued successive governments for a Region to be created until the emergence of Nana Akufo-Addo.
“Our elders started this search for Ahafo Region 40 years ago. This vision was hatched here in Nkaseim but it didn’t materialise. Since then, governments have come and gone and we were not successful until Akufo-Addo came,” the Chief said.
“Our elders, the Divisional Council here in Nkaseim met again when President Akufo-Addo was elected and decided that we should go and see President Akufo-Addo if he can do something for us. So we organised Nananom and truly, Nana Akufo-Addo has lived by his words to us.”
“You accepted our request and you honoured your promise and that has given Ahafo a region,” the Chief said, referring to the President.
The Chief added that apart from what the government has done for the people of Ahafo, the Akufo-Addo government also deserves commendation for its good policies, which he said are impacting the country positively.
He singled out the Free SHS intervention for special praise, noting that it has come as a relief to many parents.
“As we thank you, we are not only thanking you for giving us a region. We are also thanking you and the President for the good works of your government,” the Chief added.
“You have done a lot, including Free SHS. I have 14 children and if not for Free SHS, how would I pay for their fees?
“We are all farmers here and the free SHS has really relieved us of financial pressure. We thank you so much.”
The Chief pleaded with the government to assist the community with a secondary school it has started.
He also urged government to add Nkaseim town roads to the list of many roads that are being rehabilitated.
Vice President Bawumia urged the Chief and people to rally behind President Akufo-Addo by giving him four more years to do more.
According to Dr. Bawumia, the President has kept faith with the people and truly cares for the welfare of the citizenry and the development of the nation.
Vice President Dr Bawumia has embarked on a one-day tour of the Ahafo Region.
His visits took him to the Asunafo South, Asutifi South and Tano South constituencies Constituencies.
