Two chiefs in the Eastern Region have pledged their unflinching support for New Patriotic Party (NPP) Flagbearer, Nana Akuffo Addo who is seeking to annex power in the upcoming November general elections.
The two are Osabarima Agyeman Boasia II, chief of Boso, in the Asuogyaman constituency and Osabarima Adugyei Gyamfi II, chief of the Akyem Akrofufu Traditional Area.Nana Addo was given the assurance during his campaign of the region over the weekend.
Osabarima Agyeman Boasia II believes a Nana Addo presidency will spur on Economic growth and in particular development in his traditional area of Boso.
He said “I would have wished if you had come here during the day to see the deplorable nature in which the town roads of Bosu are. The young people of Bosu need jobs, Bosu needs progress and development. We need an agro based industry here so that we curb migration of our young men and women who seek greener pastures in the so-called big cities. I know God will see him through. I am in full support of Nana Akufo-Addo and I ask for God’s blessings for him.”
Also, Osabarima Adugyei Gyamfi II, Chief of the Akyem Akrofufu said “we pledge to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that, just as we have always done, whether in rain or in sunshine, day or night, we, the Chiefs and people of Atiwa, back and support him fully in this year’s elections.”
The Akyem Akrofufu chief made the declaration when Nana Addo paid a courtesy call on him at the Kwabeng Palace on Sunday.
He further urged chiefs and people of Kwamang not to “destroy your vote” in this year’s elections.
Osabarima Gyamfi II also advised the electorates to “advise your brother or sister to take a critical look at their conditions of living before voting.”
