This year’s Kae Ako festival, celebrated by the chiefs and people of Amosina in the Asebu Traditional Area of the Central Region has been launched with a call for concerted and conscious efforts to expedite development in the area.
Nana Amoah VII, Chief of Amosina and Nyimfahen of Asebu Traditional Area, expressed worry that the once vibrant town had become “a sleeping giant”, while standards of education had fallen.
He said the town lacked many infrastructural developments and social amenities and that it could take its proper place in the traditional area only if “all of us put our shoulders to the wheel to help develop it; we owe it as a duty and responsibility”
Nana Amoah VII said a a development committee and a 12-member watch dog committee had been inaugurated towards the development of the community.
A new set of musical instruments was outdoored to revive the town’s brass band, which was disbanded and instruments destroyed during chieftaincy disputes in the area, about a decade ago.
The festival, which commemorates the struggle of their forefathers, is scheduled for October on the theme: “Let us start rebuilding … God of Heaven shall give us success… Nehemiah 2: 18, 20”.
