Daasebre Professor Emeritus Oti Boateng, President of the New Juaben Traditional Council, has said the successful durbar held to welcome President John Mills during his tour of the Eastern region last week is an indication that peace and unity can always be achieved.
“This is an indication that with ones of purpose and unity, the traditional areas and the Eastern region as a whole can be assured of progress and prosperity in the years to come,” he reiterated.
A news release issued in Koforidua and signed by Daasebre Oti Boateng on behalf of the traditional council said “Nananom would like to appeal to the youth and all other citizens to continue to support the traditional authority in its determined efforts to make the area a much better place to live.”
He said the council would welcome the views of the youth and other citizens toward a peaceful and progressive development of the area.
He said “any person or group, which is aggrieved, should bring forward their grievances for the necessary measures to be taken to redress them,” adding “all such grievances and concerns should be channeled through the registrar of the council to the authority for peaceful resolution so as not to disturb the prevailing peaceful atmosphere and the on-going development projects in the area.”
Daasebre Oti Boateng said the council expects citizens of the area to do their utmost to support Nananom to maintain and enhance the traditions, customary usages and practices so as to preserve and uphold the high image of the traditional area.
“Nananom trust that peace and tranquility as well as established harmonious relations will continue to ensure the smooth implementation of the request by Nananom to the President of Ghana for the establishment of a public university for the region, the building of a regional capital, the support of tourism and sports development and the promotion of industrial development in the area in particular and the region as a whole.”
He said if the development interventions are made it would create more jobs and bring about poverty alleviation.
