13th March 2011, 02:41 PM
Okokodurfo Ogyeabo Kwamina Hammah Ababio II, Omanhene of Ajumako, has called on family heads to cooperate with properly installed chiefs for good leadership and development.

He said the situation where family heads after some few

years of installation, turned their back on the chiefs, stifles

chieftaincy and development.
The Omanhene made the call at a ceremony to elevate Nana

Afrasi Brempong VII, Odikro of Ajumako Assin (Kweikrom)

to the status of a divisional chief under the title of Sanaahene of

Ajumako Traditional Area.
He said the elevation of Nana Afrasi Bremapong VII was in

recognition of the wonderful role his late uncle, Nana Afrasi

Brempong VI, played when the area was being separated from

the Breman Asikuma Traditional Council and other important

services he rendered to the people during his regime.
The Omanhene said Nana Brempong VII has become the

first Sanaahene of the Ajumako Traditional Area and called on

the Afrasi Twidan family of Ajumako Assin (Kweikrom) to

support the chief to lead them to develop the area.
He urged the chief to follow the foot-steps of his late uncle

and work towards the development of the area.
Earlier in the day, Nana Brempong was carried in a

palanquin through the principal streets of Ajumako amidst

fontomfrom drumming and brass band music to the forecourt

of the Traditional Council where he took the oath of allegiance.
The Ebusuapanyi, Mr Yaw Asante, led the family to present

drinks and a ram to the Omanhene as custom demand.
Nana Brempong thanked the Omanhene for the honour

done him and promised to collaborate with other chiefs to

develop the area.
