President Akuffo Addo says he was given us region but it’s incomplete – Sefwi Omahene laments

The Omahene of Sefwi Traditional area Okatakyie Kwasi Bumangama II has slammed government for giving them false hope during engagements before the creation of new regions.

According to him, the impression about massive development once Western North is hoved out of Western region is lacking.

“Akuffo Addo said he has given us region but the region is incomplete” – Okatakyie Kwasi Bumangama II lamented during his interaction with former President John Mahama who paid a courtesy call on him and his subjects on Day One of his two-day tour of the region.

The Sefwi Omanhene questioned the rationale behind creating new regions with all the funfair and promises with very little to show.

For him, what needs to be done is to ensure that the newly created regions are adequately resourced to catch up with those which existed before the addition of six new regions.

Commenting on the state of forests in the region as a result of mining, the Okatakyie Kwasi Bumangama II said …”The Forestry Commission has taken over our lands and they are destroying it. It would have been better if the so-called forest guards were not introduced”.

In response, the NDC 2024 Presidential candidate assured that the next NDC government will ensure protection of the forest reserves and fast track development in all the newly create regions.
