The Paramount Chief of Asokore traditional area in the Ashanti Region, Nana Dr Susubiribi Krobea Asante, has denied having anything doing with moves to get the Sekyere East District Chief Executive removed from office by the appointing authority for alleged malfeasance, non-performance, disrespectful and development issues.
He maintained that he has not authorised or endorsed any statement to the media, supporting or indicting Mary Boatemaa Marfo, the District Chief Executive for Asokore.
Nana Dr Susubiribi Asante made the denial when he interacted with journalists at Asokore and indicated that “if there are any development issues in the area I need to bring to the attention of the president, I know the appropriate channel to use and will not be doing that through the media, I remain a chief and I am not going to indulge in politics.
“My overriding concern as a traditional ruler has been to bring growth and development to the area, to make things better for my people so as to improve livelihoods and attract investment to create jobs and wealth for the youth, that is what I have been working to achieve over the years.
“I have also been making efforts to improve access, quality teaching and learning through a foundation I have set up, the “SKB Foundation”, in partnership with the J.A. Kufuor Foundation, have distributed education materials to schools and organised vacation classes for 800 students, providing bursaries to students who gain admission into colleges of education and financed some school projects, there was an instance where I had to pay for the cost of medical treatment of a little boy who required a throat surgery.
Some chiefs in the Asokore traditional area recently held a press conference to demand the removal from office of Madam Marfo for alleged non-performance, malfeasance, disrespectful and development issues but she has denied all the allegations and appealed to them to approach her to have discourse on the growth and development of the area. -gna.org
