The Member of Parliament (MP) for Gomoa West, Alexander Abban has admonished traditional councils in the area to document their lines of succession to help nip in the bud, protracted chieftaincy litigations.
He expressed worry that several communities and towns have been without chiefs for several years due to feuds by kingmakers thus stalling socio-economic development in those areas.
Mr Abban made the admonition when he addressed the 62nd Independence Day anniversary parade of basic school children at Apam in the Gomoa district of the Central Region.
Touching on the theme for the anniversary, ‘Celebrating peace and unity’, he stressed on the need for people of the area to commit and dedicate to peace and unity so as to attract investors to create wealth for the youth.
Mr Abban solicited prayers to enable him to successfully go through his impending vetting in parliament for the position of Deputy Minister for Health.
Benjamin Coker, the Gomoa West District Director of Education, underscored the importance of Independence Day celebrations and urged the people to emulate the bravery and selflessness of the nation’s forefathers.
He advised parents to provide their children with their basic needs, support and guide them to come out with flying colours in their educational endeavour.
