The Suame Municipal Assembly’s Chief Executive, Dr. John Osei Bobbie Boahen says traditional authorities are leaders for developmental change.
Dr. Bobbie has thus appealed for cooperation and support from the traditional authorities in the Suame Municipality in Kumasi, in the Ashanti region, to assist in initiating projects to develop the area.
He made the appeal on Tuesday, August 28, when he paid a courtesy call on chiefs in the municipality to express gratitude and create working relations with them.
According to him, the assembly has planned to turn the ‘Bremang Banmu’; designated cemetery for chiefs, to a modern museum for Asanteman to attract tourists to the area.
He disclosed that, portraits of heroes with Ashanti descent will be exhibited at the museum to remind people of their contributions toward developing the country especially the Ashanti Kingdom.
The Bremanhene, Baffour Kotei Kutin Sraman II, on his part, commended President Akufo-Addo and the assembly members for his nomination and endorsement respectively.
The Bremanhene then appealed to the assembly to put measures in place towards developing the Bremang community, indicating that roads and sanitation are major problems facing the community.
