The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II will, on Monday, lead a 40-man delegation of chiefs from Asanteman to the Castle, in Accra, to formally congratulate President J.E.A. Mills on his assumption of office. This was contained in a press statement issued yesterday by Presidential Spokesman Mahama Ayariga, detailing some activities the President is to undertake.

According to the statement, the President will tomorrow, visit the Jubilee Oilfield in the Western Region, as part of a familiarisation tour of on-going economic development projects in the country.

The President will arrive at the Takoradi Airforce base in the morning and proceed to the oil rig where he would be shown around and briefed extensively, on operations of the rig by Tullow Oil executives including the CEO, who is flying in specifically for the visit by the President.

On his return from the oil rig, President Mills will be in Cape Coast where a durbar of chiefs and people of the Central Region is expected to be held at the Victoria Park on Saturday, March 28, in his honour.

On Sunday, March 29, the Oguaaman Union will host the President to a special luncheon after a church service at the Pentecost Church, near Adisadel College, Cape Coast, to round off his activities in the region.
