Traditional chiefs in the Ashanti region have been tasked by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II with continuously monitoring the region’s developmental projects and obtaining updates from President Nana Akufo-Addo and other authorities about the status of various projects to support the necessary development.
The Ashanti Region’s residents have expressed worries in recent years over abandoned government projects in the region.
Many people have voiced their dissatisfaction with the government for failing to keep many of the promises it made to them.
The Ashanti Regional House of Chiefs welcomed Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei Mensah on Wednesday, November 15, in response to the region’s citizens’ growing agitations, in order to address their urgent issues.
Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II responded to the Ashanti regional minister’s answers to the concerns expressed by the chiefs. He emphasized that chiefs should follow up with the president or other appointees to find out the status of projects in their respective areas, particularly in cases where there is a glaring delay.
He emphasizes that the chiefs’ crucial role will guarantee that the area receives the necessary development.
The Asantehene also cautioned chiefs to take up farming in order to promote industrialization in different areas and aid in job creation, hence addressing the issue of unemployment that faces Ghanaians.
