Speaking in an interview at his palace, he said the President assured him during a short meeting in Kumasi few months back that road construction project would be extended to Kwapra after he (chief) had appealed to the President to come to the rescue of the community.
Kwapra is one of the fastest growing towns in Kumasi with a sizeable population, plush residences, and social amenities. Dusty roads have however become the bane of the town and this has been a displeasure to the residents and also a source of worry to the Chief.
Baffour Kumaniin expressed delight that the roads at Kwapra that have so far been tarred and made motorable have brought great relief to residents, particularly home and shop owners, who hitherto were unable to even paint their properties.
As political campaigning in the country gathers momentum ahead of elections in December, the Kwaprahene called for decent politicking by all the political parties and their agents as they canvass for votes.
He said politics should be considered as nothing more than the expression of divergent views and this should not be grounds for any conflict and acrimony among Ghanaians since we are all on people with a common destiny.
According to him development can only be seen in the country if there is peace and it is incumbent on all citizens of this nation to work to ensure peace before, during and after the elections in December.
Baffour Kumaniin advised the youth of the country to be very vigilant and shun politicians who plan to deceive them (youth) into engaging in violence just to advance the selfish political interest of any political party.
He said Ghana has earned the respect of her peers in Africa and even beyound for advancing democracy and constitutional rule and the next polls later in the year should be an opportunity to further establish the county’s reputation.
