Ghana: Sabin Akrofuom Gets New Chief

Nana Osei Kofi, known in his private life as Mr. George Atta-Sei Anane, has sworn the oath of allegiance to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, as the new Chief of Sabin Akrofuom in the Kwanwoma District.

He was selected by Otumfuo to succeed his uncle, Nana Kwaku Duah, an Obrempon of Otumfuo.

His mandate is to ensure that the people remain united for development in peace.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, at the swearing-in ceremony, advised the new chief to ensure that he improved the lot of the people, be transparent, and consolidate the gains of his predecessor.

The Ashanti King charged Nana Osei Kofi to protect government lands of schools being encroached, upon instead of serving the needs of the community at large.

The new chief has indicated that his focus would be on education, and ensure that all children of school-going age are encouraged to pursue formal education for societal growth.

Nana Osei Kofi has also pledged to discourage land litigation among his people, and that he would not encourage the sale of land to two different persons. He appealed to colleague chiefs to also desist from such acts, and allow peace to prevail in the Ashanti Region. Nana Afia Kwartemaah, Queenmother of Sabin Akrofuom, advised him to be tolerant in dealing with detractors, and focus on unity, peace and progress, for the benefit of all the citizens of the community.
