Mahama to join people of Abease to celebrate ‘Kwabena’ yam festival


The residents of Abease in the Bono East Region are preparing for a huge celebration this weekend as they anticipate the appearance of John Dramani Mahama at this year’s ‘Kwabena’ (Yam Festival).

The ceremony, hosted by the Abease Traditional Council, is expected to be historic, with the former President acting as the Guest Speaker.


The invitation offered by Obrempong Kru Takyi (ii), the Paramount Chief and President of the Abease Traditional Council, has elicited ecstasy among the villagers.

They expressed their excitement for the visit, underlining their appreciation for Mahama’s dedication to their community.

The status of the Kintampo-Komfuorkrom-Abease-Prang road is one among the main problems mentioned by the community ahead of Mahama’s visit. Residents say the route has become a refuge for armed thieves, blaming the situation on what they see as the present government’s lack of dedication.

According to youth leaders, the contractor only returned to the site in the fourth quarter of the previous year.

Prayers were expressed during conversations with elders and young for John Dramani Mahama’s success in the forthcoming December 2024 elections, with the expectation that he would continue to address the area’s developmental needs.

The people wished for Mahama to “Build the Ghana We Want Together.”

Suleman Mohammed-Mustapha, the NDC’s Bono East Regional Communications Officer, signed a statement to that effect.

The statement also expressed thanks for Mahama’s prior donations to the community, including the creation of the Abease Community Day Senior High School.

The CHPS Compound at Komfuorkrom, a Six Classroom Block for D/A Primary School, a Six Classroom Block for R/C JHS, and a Maternity Ward at the Abease Health Centre were also included.

Another notable success was the introduction of power to the whole Abease Traditional Area.

The ‘Kwabena’ (Yam Festival), themed “Employing Unity As A Catalyst To Building A Better Abease,” is expected to draw participants from all walks of life.

National Executives of the NDC, Regional Chairman of the NDC in Bono East, Hon. Unas Owusu, Parliamentary Candidates, Members of Parliament, Former Government Appointees, Branch Executives, and other Party Sympathizers are among those in attendance.

The festival’s goal is to promote togetherness and a collaborative effort for the development of the community.
