The Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Council has sacked six chiefs in the traditional area for allegedly showing disrespect to the presidency of the Council and acknowledging Gomoa Afransi as traditional area.
Gomoa has two traditional councils, namely Gomoa Ajumako and Gomoa Akyempim.
The six were Odikro of Afransi, Nana Ogyeedom Obrenu Kwesi Atta VI, Odikro of Dahom, Nana Kwaaprah IV, Odikro of Lome, Nana Ayeredu Nyarko, Odikro of Achiase, Nana Okuru-BaahV, Odikro of Gyaman, Nana Efua Koba II and Odikro of Beseadze, Gyetuah I.
The Paramount Chief of Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Council, Obrempong Nyanful Krampah disclosed this during a meeting of the Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Council State at Gomoa Ekwamkrom in the Gomoa East District of the Central region on Friday.
Obrempong Krampah noted that regents in those areas had been mandated by the traditional council to act as chiefs since the affected persons breached their oath of allegiance to paramount stool of the traditional area.
The Paramount Chief further urged Ebusuapanyin to take the necessary steps to ensure sanity in their respective areas.
He expressed dissatisfaction with the manner in which Nana Kwesi Atta failed to heed the instruction of the Standing Committee of the Tradtional Council not to allow chiefs from the traditional area who are not from Afransi to be carried during the Afransi Akwanbo Festival.

“The Odikro of Afransi for sometime now has been very adamant to the authority of the traditional council and is now seeking all means to be recognized as a paramount chief in Gomoa Afransi,” he said.
“His action is contrary to section 63(a) and (b) of the chieftaincy Act2008, Act 759” he added.
The Paramount Chief charged the chiefs in the area to regularly visit the various schools in the area to ensure that teachers always go to school to teach.
Obrempong Nyanful appealed to the District Assembly to establish mini libraries in all the communities to help students read more books.
He charged politicians not to incite the youth to do anything that will cause chaos ahead of this year’s elections.
However a cow was slaughtered to signify that the chiefs had actually been sacked from the Tradtional council.
