The Chief of Sefwi Humjibre who doubles as the Krontihene of Sefwi Bekwai Traditional Council, Nana Kwadwo Twum ll, together with Nana Kwasi Badu Mensah Abroampa, the chief of Sefwi Sukusuku and Abusumpanin Kwadwo Amoah, the overall Abusumpanin of the Ekoona family of Sefwi Sukusuku at Sefwi Bekwai Traditional Council, has today held a Press conference at Sefwi Humjibre to declare their stands about the so called Paramount Chief of Sefwi Bekwai.
According to the kingmakers, they don’t recognize Basape Kwadwo Armah lll, who is styling himself as the Omanhene of Sefwi Bekwai Traditional Council.
Abusumpanin Kwadwo Amoah told the media that, the Mr Kofi Manu, popularly known and called Nana Kwadwo Armah III, was not the rightful candidate from the deserving royal gate but rather Nana Danso Asare.
“We the kingmakers have not Enstooled Basape Kwadwo Armah as Paramount Chief of Sefwi-Bekwai, the legetimate and preferred candidate was Nana Danso Asare”
“He alleged that the America man used soldiers and police to intimidate us and snatched the stool from us”
They said that, Sefwi Bekwai and its environs have never had peace and unity ever since the America man used mafia way to install himself as the Omanhene of Sefwi Bekwai.
We are therefore appealing to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo and Minister for Chieftaincy to quickly ensure that lawyer is sent to the Western North Regional House of Chiefs to facilitate the hearing of cases to enable them address these Chieftaincy Issues at Sefwi Bekwai for a peaceful core-existence.
