Nkoranza Traditional Council

Reverend Father Stephen Asante Bakor, Parish Priest of St. Anthony Catholic Church at Ejisu, has appealed to chiefs to strive to be agents of peace in their traditional areas.

He said chiefs occupied important positions and it was their ultimate responsibility to work to unite their people to live in peace in order to attract investments and the needed development to their areas.

Rev. Fr Bakor made the appeal on Sunday when Nana Afrane Okese IV, Paramount Chief of Ejisu Traditional Area, joined the congregation in worship to climax his tenth year anniversary celebration on his enstoolment as the Paramount Chief of the area.

Rev. Fr. Bakor explained that peace was a pre-requisite of development in every nation, and chiefs who were traditional owners of the nation had a duty to ensure and protect peace in their areas.

He said one of the areas in which chiefs could bring peace to their areas was to try to desist from trampling on the rights and privileges of their subjects.

Rev. Fr Bakor also advised Ghanaians to show greater respect to their traditional leaders.

Nana Afrane Okese used the occasion to thank God for how far he had brought him as the chief of the area.

He expressed his gratitude to the people of Ejisu for the trust and confidence they had in him as the chief of the area.
In attendance was Nana Yaa Asantewaa II, Queen of the Ejisu Traditional Area.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
