They swore the oath of allegiance to Okese Essandoh VIII, the Omanhene, who in turn pledged his support for them.
Speaking at the ceremony, Nana Baah IV, Ninfahene of the area admonished chiefs to be firm and fair in judging cases, adding that they should not under any circumstances use one's richness or social status in determining their verdict.
He advised them to respect themselves in order to attract the community's respect adding that they should not expect reward for everything that they will do.
Nana Appredontwe IX, Akwamuhene of Nkusukum advised them to be truthful and also desist from lording their positions over their people. He urged them to be regular at meetings so that they could present problems in their areas to the traditional council.
