Restore power of summons for chiefs – Kumasi Traditional Council president
The Kumasi Traditional Council has called on government to immediately restore the power for chiefs to summon their subjects.
President of the Council and Chief of Bantama, Baffour Owusu Amankwatia, said the cooperation of the president in restoring the power without delay will help traditional leaders to play any meaningful role in solving pertinent issues in their local areas.
Speaking to the media on his NewYear message in Kumasi, he emphasized the fight against ‘galamsey’, for example, would have been easier if the chiefs had their power of summons.
He explained that the Kumasi Traditional Council receives daily reports about people engaging in ‘galamsey’ and can do a lot to help increase the success rate of the ban on ‘galamsey’.
“Any serious social mobilization without the involvement of chiefs will not be effective,” the chief added.
Nana Amankwatia said the Council wants President Akufo-Addo to fulfill his promise to the chiefs last year to give chiefs power and resources to resolve issues at the local level.
He also warned the Council will from this year embark on rigorous enforcement to get traders off the pavements and other unauthorized areas in Kumasi.
The president of the Council warned all traders plying their businesses at unauthorized areas to vacate immediately.
