The Effutu Traditional Council, led by Neenyi Ghartey VII, has expressed its gratitude to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufu-Addo for the almost completed safe landing facility in Effutuman. The council eagerly anticipates the official inauguration of the facility as a solution to the unhygienic environment that has plagued the landed fish site for years.

At the recently concluded Aboakyer Festival in Winneba, Neenyi Ghartey delivered an address, calling for the government to act quickly to address the grazing issues in the hunting grounds. The festival, which culminated in the offering of the first catch of a live deer from any of the two Asafo groups, saw the Tuafo No.1 company bringing the first catch to the durbar ground at exactly 10: 13hrs.

Despite the success of the festival, the traditional council’s tree planting exercise at the hunting site was put on hold due to overgrazing by cattle herdsmen, who also refused to leave. Neenyi Ghartey, therefore, called on the Assembly to intervene promptly and prevent any misunderstandings.

The traditional council leader pointed out that climate change is real and stressed the need to reserve some areas for purposes other than human habitation, citing the Ramsar site where they hunt for the sacrificial animal annually as one such place.

Effutu is keen on sustaining its tradition of propitiating the deity and the souls of its ancestors. The Aboakyer festival brings together all sons and daughters of Effutuman to reflect on the past and plan for the future.

In addition to their request for an ultra-modern market, the traditional council hopes that the government’s consideration of their plight will go a long way in protecting the lives of Effutuman citizens from diseases spread through unhygienic environments.

For the most part, the traditional council’s message is clear – Effutu is determined to preserve its traditions and cultural heritage while embracing modernization and development.
