The Chief of Akrofrom near Nkwanta in the Afigya Kwabre South District in the Ashanti Region, Nana Kofi Krah II has bemoaned the lack of social amenities in the community. According to the Chief, the community lacks social amenities, and the ones they have are also deteriorating making life uncomfortable for residents.
He stated this after swearing-in, five elders, into Nkwanta-Akrofrom Traditional Council. The five elders were:
Gyaasehene – Nana Boakye Ansah
Adontenhene – Nana Kwadwo Afriyie
Kyidomhene – Oheneba Kofi Acheampong
Mawerehene – Nana Yaw Asamoah
Okyeame – Kyeame Kwame Agyei
As customary rites demand, they sealed their legitimacy by swearing the oath of allegiance to Nkwanta-Akrofrom Dikro at the Akrofrom palace, Kyidom Fekuo.
Nana Kofi Krah II urged the government to come to their aid so far as social amenities are concerned. He bemoaned the lack of teachers’ accommodation for teachers in the Akrofrom D/A Primary and Junior High schools. He also bemoaned the very bad road linking Kodie, Apagya, Akrofrom, Patasi, Penteng through to Denase. He highlighted the urgent need for the Member of Parliament for the Afigya Kwabre South Constituency who is also a deputy minister of Energy, Hon. William Owuraku Aidoo to provide adequate street lighting systems for the community. His appeal comes after emphasizing that he is ready and willing to offer any support to the DCE and MP in matters of development in the community.
