THE CHIEF of Kwahu Kotoso in the Kwahu East District of the Eastern Region, Nana Ampoma Gyebi, has called on traditional leaders and Ghanaians to cooperate with and support the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to enable it to fulfil all the promises for speedy development of the country.
The chief said chiefs, as opinion leaders and custodians of the land, need to partner the new government by offering lands for free for agriculture and industrialisation purposes so that they can benefit from the government’s projects.
Nana Ampoma, who is also a business tycoon and farmer, expressed dissatisfaction about the manner in which some investors are made to spend precious time and money on land litigation in court due to actions and inaction of some chiefs and opinion leaders and called for a stop to the unfortunate situation if Ghana wants to develop.
Nana Ampoma stated this in an interview with the DAILY HERITAGE at his palace at Kotoso when he met his sub-chiefs to plan how they could contribute their quota to assist in the development efforts of President Akufo-Addo’s government.
Kotoso lies along the Afram Lake with the land being suitable for both crops and fish farming. The area is also suitable for irrigation during dry season since the land is close to the lake.
The chief pledged to offer land to the government and any investor who would want to invest in the area for free and also assist in other aspects to enable the government’s development plans to succeed.
