Drobo (B/A), Feb. 17, GNA - Nana Bofo Bene 1V, Omanhene of Awasu Traditional Council in Brong Ahafo, has stressed that the political split of Jaman District into North and South did not mean a concurrent division in the council into segments.
"Culture supersedes politics and we should not lose sight of the fact that blending politics with culture and fostering unity will help us to develop the two districts", he said.
Nana Bofo was addressing the six paramount chiefs of the council at Drobo, capital of Jaman South District at a meeting jointly organised by the two district Assemblies to discuss ways of accelerating their development.
The Omanhene appealed to his colleague to explore all avenues to give peace and unity a chance to enhance the development of the two districts.
The six paramountcies, whose chiefs attended the meeting, were Awasu, Drobo and Japekrom in Jaman South and Kwatwoma, Sampa and Suma in Jaman South. Mr Apraku Tanoh, District Chief Executive for Jaman South advised the chiefs to remain united and focused on the development of their areas.
He emphasized that unity amongst them would encourage the youth to also bury their differences and re-direct their energies to the accelerated development in their communities. The chiefs expressed their gratitude to President Kufuor for creating Jaman North District, with Sampa as the capital. They appealed to the government to expedite action on the rehabilitation of the Drobo-Sampa road to facilitate the economic activities of the people.
