Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II, the President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs has described efforts to document the ‘Bono’ language as laudable initiative and assured his support to make it a reality.
He said the documentation of the ‘Bono’ language was long overdue and called on academicians in the region to support the process as well, saying successful documentation of the language would not only benefit the region, but the nation at large.
Osagyefo Agyemang Badu II, also the Paramount Chief of Dormaa Traditional Area gave the assurance when the Management and Board of the ‘Bono Twi Documentation Project’ visited to update the Bono Regional House of Chiefs on the progress made so far, and to solicit for their support towards the project.
