President Nana Akufo-Addo urged the chiefs to
forge strong partnership with the government to
realize the national development goals.

“We are conscious of the invaluable role and
contribution of traditional rulers in our
development agenda, and as such my government

activities to promote the interest of the

He added that issues concerning illegal

“As chiefs you have the responsibility to help
preserve our lands, as well as all other resources
the good Lord has blessed us with.”

Togbe Afede XIV, President of the House, applauded
the government for its pro-poor policies, and
expressed the hope that it would continue to work
hard to build a more robust and resilient

The meeting had been designed to provide the
platform for the President to explain government
development policies and programmes to the chiefs.
