THE Anafoohene of Nkwabeng-Nkoranza in the Brong Ahafo Region, Nana Appiah Kodom II, has sworn the oath of allegiance to the Omanhene of the Nkoranza Traditional Area, Okatakyie Agyemang Kodom, to legitimise his enstoolment in line with the customs and tradition of the area.
The ceremony at which the rich traditions of the people of Nkoranza were on display was attended by a large number of people.
Nana Kodom, known in private life as Ernest Baffoe Gyau, was a former student of the Acherensua Secondary School. He now resides in the United States of America.
At the ceremony, Nana Kodom gave a pledge to support the development of his area and the entire traditional area.
He admitted the development challenges confronting the area, but said with a united front, they could overcome them.
The Anafoohene said even though he lived outside the country, his aura was firmly on the ground in his native area and that he would promptly respond to anything that demanded his support.
For his part, the Nkoranzahene, Okatakyie Kodom, advised the Anafoohene to be prepared to serve the paramount stool at all times.
He noted that chieftaincy today was not about wearing beautiful cloths and riding in a palanquin but how one could galvanise his people for development.
The Nkoranzahene said education was one area of great concern to him and advised his people to help improve standards.
