The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Yilo Krobo, Mr Ebenezer Tetteh Kupualor has officially paid a courtesy call on Nene Oklepeme Nuer Anorbaa Sasraku II, Konor of Yilo Klo traditional area.
The MCE was accompanied by heads of the various departments and the political leadership in the Yilo Krobo Municipality.
The visit was the first by the MCE and his entourage to the area.
Mr Kupualor said their visit was to pay allegiance to the Konor of the Yilo Klo traditional area and assure him of his maximum cooperation and support.
Nene Sasraku II, in his brief address acknowledged the delay of the gesture of traditional honours and respect to his throne but made it clear that, for the interest of peace and development of the Yilo Klo traditional state, he holds no issues against the
MCE and his entire team and called for a peaceful co-existence among the citizens of the Yilo Klo traditional state.
He expressed his gratitude to President Nana Akuffo Addo through the MCE for the successful implementation of the free SHS system and the Eastern Region University at Somanya where the continuation works had just began.
Nene Sasraku II also advised Mr Kupualor to assist in putting systems in place to address the fallen educational standards in the area as well as unemployment among the youth of the area.
Mr Kupualor, in his brief response, thanked Nene Sasraku II and his entire traditional leadership for accepting them at the Palace, despite the delays and pledged his allegiance and support to the Paramountcy for the development of the area.
He later presented crates of assorted drinks, schnapps and an amount of money to the traditional leadership as their support for the festival, which started on November 1, with the King’s Praise Crusade at Somanya Lorry Station.
