Traditional authorities in the Asutifi South District of the Brong-Ahafo Region have affirmed their commitment to push and make the proposed creation of the Ahafo Region a reality.

They comprised chiefs and queens from Sienkyeim, Dadeasoaba, Nkaseim, Ayomso and Asufufuo, predominantly farming communities in the area.

The chiefs noted that communities in the area were still lagging behind in development as they were deprived of basic developmental needs, hence the need for a new Ahafo Region to help broaden scope of development and alleviate the plight of rural dwellers.

The traditional authorities were interacting with the constituents at Mehame, a farming community in the district as the campaign for the creation of the new Ahafo Region gathers momentum in the area.

According to them, they would forever be grateful to Alhaji Collins Dauda, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Asutifi South for better and improved road network, extension of electricity to emerging settlements, and deprived communities as well as access to potable drinking water.

The chiefs also commended him when they interacted with the lawmaker, expressed appreciation to him for his efforts at enhancing the development of the area, showered praises on the legislator for his true sense of statesmanship that had impacted significantly on the development of the communities.

Nana Osono Pantu, the Chief of Mehame, who spoke on behalf of the traditional authorities, was hopeful the MP would support and intensify sensitisation for eligible voters in the area to participate in the impending referendum that would decide the creation of the new region.

Nana Danso Ababio, the Chief of Nkaseim, reminded traditional rulers on the need for them to mobilise their people to participate in the referendum slated for December 27, this year.

“The Ahafo area will not be developed as expected if the new Ahafo region is not created, consequently the need for the people to bury their political differences and canvass for more votes,” he noted.

Alhaji Dauda assured the chiefs of peace, tranquility and development that would thrive and urged them to jealously protect the prevailing peace in the area to facilitate equitable distribution of projects.

The MP said the focus of every government was to push forward development, hence the need for the people to bury their political differences and offer support to speed up development in the district. -GNA
