Nkoranza Traditional Council to support Anglican University

By gna

The Nkoranza Traditional Council would raise funds to support the Anglican University Project sited at Nkoranza.

Okatakyie Agyeman Kudom IV, Oamnhene of Nkoranza addressing a general meeting of the council at his palace, said temporary accommodation was ready for the commencement of the project and funds to be raised would be used to renovate the structures.

Part of the funds would be used to provide furniture, lecture halls and other facilities.

Okatakyie Agyemang Kudom urged sub-chiefs in the area to educate the people about the importance of the University and encourage them to mobilise funds in support of the institution.

He commended the Reverend Minister in-charge of the Nkoranza Anglican Church, Canon Peter Kwadwo Sakyi for his hard work and efforts in spearheading the establishment of the Anglican University in Nkoranza.

On the up-coming general elections, the Omanhene and former President of the Brong-Ahafo Regional House of Chiefs stressed the need for traditional rulers to educate the youth to guard against any negative practices and attitudes that could affect the success of the elections.

He called on the youth of the various political parties not to allow themselves to be used by selfish politicians to cause confusion in the communities during this crucial event, as such attitudes could affect the peace and stability of the state, saying, the marginalised persons such as nursing mothers, children, the sick and the disabled would suffer from the problems.

The chief called on traditional rulers to do well to fill chieftaincy declaration forms to maintain their status and dignity as chief, which is enshrined in the Chieftaincy Act and to be registered with the National House of Chiefs.

Nana Amoa Gyare Baffo, Gyaasehene of Nkoranza Traditional Area and also the chairman of the fund mobilisation committee announced that the committee has envisaged raising about 2 billion Ghana cedis in support of the university project.

Nana Amoa Gyare Baffo therefore said special contributions of between 25 Ghana cedis and 150 Ghana cedis have been assigned to all the communities of Nkoranza and for the people to pay towards the fund raising rally, adding that the communities have been categorised into four, ranging from the largest to the smallest settlements.

He stressed the need for the assembly members and unit committees to team up with the Adikrofo in collecting their respective funds from the people so that the rally would be successfully organised and warned that any youth who would challenge such plan would be made to face the full rigours of the law.
