The Koforidua branch of the Oboman Kuo, a benevolent group of citizens of Obo Kwahu, celebrated its sixth anniversary last week.
The event was attended by local members and members from the Accra and Tema branches.
The event was aimed at taking stock of the group’s activities and planning for the future well-being of its members as well as the development of Obo in general.
Addressing the gathering, Barima Adansi Twum I, Nkosuohene of Obo and head of the Obo Community of Accra-Tema, asked the Koforidua branch to invest in viable ventures.
That, he stated, would relieve members of constantly paying levies towards development projects.
He praised the Koforidua branch for the successes so far chalked within a period of six years.
The chairman of the Koforidua branch, Dr. S.B. Ofori, outlined the aims and objectives of the association which included assisting members in time of need and also contributing to the development of Obo.
He thanked the chiefs of Obo for supporting the Eastern Regional Capital, Koforidua, branch of the Association.
The Guest Speaker, Dr Nana Okra-Baadu III said the association was collaborating with the Presbyterian University College, Abetifi, to establish its Engineering Department at Obo.
The Obohemaa, Nana Afriyie Fosua Kobua II also asked members of the association to cater for the education needs of their children especially, the girls.
Prizes were presented to some of the executive members whose immense contributions had resulted in the growth of the association.
