Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh (L) and President Akufo-Addo

Sunyani chiefs ‘forgive’ Brong Ahafo regional minister-designate
Brong Ahafo Regional Minister-designate, Kwaku
Asomah-Cheremeh and the Sunyani Traditional
Council have settled their differences, which put
the Council and the New Patriotic Party on a
collision course prior to last year’s general
elections.

Mr Asomah-Cheremeh, who is the Regional Chairman
of the NPP condemned the Paramount Chief of the
Council, Nana Bosoma Asor Nkrawiri, when he
declared support for former President John Mahama
in the 2016 presidential elections Nana Nkrawiri
projected an overwhelming victory of between 70
and 80 per cent for then President Mahama;
something that Mr Asoma-Cheremeh found unbecoming
of a chief and described it as unacceptable and
the breach of the constitution.

He said the chief “stooped to the lowest level to
call on residents of the region to endorse the
Presidency of Mahama.What we find appalling and
unbelievable is the fact that a 10-kilometre
stretch of uncompleted road could induce a chief
of his standing to promise 70 to 80 percent
victory in the region for the President.”

Mr Asoma-Cheremeh’s comments angered the chief and
the Traditional Council who summoned him to
explain his comments but he refused on grounds
that the Council lacked legal authority to summon
him. Upon his nomination as the regional minister
by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo , the
chiefs requested that he be changed on grounds
that they cannot work with Mr Asoma-Cheremeh.

But statement issued by the aide to the regional
minister-designate Wednesday said the Council and
Mr Asoma-Cheremeh have buried their differences
“Yesterday,14th February, 2017, the Valentine day,
at around 5:30pm at the Missions House of the
Roman Catholic Cathedral, Sunyani, the Nananom
have wholeheartedly forgotten and buried whatever
happened between them and the New Patriotic Party
before, during and after the 2016 General
Elections,” the statement said.

The statement quoted Mr Asom-Chereme as having
declared that “there is absolutely nothing evil”
between the NPP and the chiefs of the Traditional
Council.

“The two parties finally agreed to work in unity,
in peace and live as one family both in Sunyani
and outside Sunyani,” it said and urged the public
to ensure that peace prevail in the region.
