The chief of Bassa, Nana Owusu Sekyi III in the Brong Ahafo Region also endorsed the candidature of President John Mahama ahead of the 2016 Elections.
Speaking at a rally during a campaign tour of the Brong Ahafo Region by the President, the Bassa paramount chief hailed the NDC government’s achievements in the last four years despite the handicap of the Election Petition in 2013.
“We will not be able to list all the NDC government has done for this community. Although they haven’t constructing all the roads, we can clearly see that they are in the process of doing so.

‘Chiefs involved in politics’
Meanwhile, the Minister for Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs, Henry Seidu Danaa, is urging persons concerned about Chiefs endorsing presidential aspirants despite the act being unlawful, to report to them to their respective Regional House of Chiefs to have the issues addressed.
According to him, the constitution frowns on traditional rulers mounting political platforms or displaying party paraphernalia.
