The Paramount Chief of Effiduase has publicly expressed his unhappiness with the District Chief Executive [DCE] for Effiduase-Asokore and her motives to ‘forcefully prevent’ development in the town.
Nana Adu Ameyaw II who was speaking to journalists over the weekend accused the DCE, Mary Boatemaa Marfo of creating ‘enemy’ between the twin towns, thus, for Effiduase-Asokore.
“We agreed with the assembly that national events which are celebrated locally are split under the two towns which are Effiduase and Asokore, but the DCE has directed that all events go to Asokore which is not supposed to be so,” he said.
According to Nana Adu Ameyaw II, Madam Mary Boatemaa is unperturbed about happenings in the district as far as development is concerned.
“She is not doing anything for this town and not bringing any developmental projects to the town, why? We have a lot of children here who have qualified for scholarships but our DCE has refused to process them despite several appeals,” he bemoaned – after accusing the DCE of creating a “ghost school feeding which has created problems for schools in the town.”

However, Nana Adu Ameyaw II lauded the Member of Parliament for the area, Dr Nana Ayew Afriyie for his immense support to the town.
He explained that the MP sometimes has to use “his personal money for projects in the town just because the DCE is refusing to process needed documents for the assembly to embark on such projects.”
There has been tension between the MP, Dr Nana Ayew Afriyie and the DCE – Months ago the DCE accused the MP of assaulting her.
According to the report, the incident happened ahead of President Akufo-Addo’s visit to Effiduase in the Sekyere East District during his tour of the Region in October.
But further investigations revealed that Mary Boatemaa Marf fabricated the story to tarnish the image of the hard-working Member of Parliament for the area, Dr Nana Ayew Afriyie.
The DCE’s doings has forced the Effiduase Omanahene to call on the Regional Minister, Simon Osei and President Akufo-Addo to intervene.
“We want President Akufo-Addo and the Regional Minister to help us; we are lacking development in our district.” He pleaded
Nana Adu Ameyaw II worried comes days after the Asokore traditional council also raised some concerned about the DCE’s activities and called for her removal with immediate effect.
