Okyenhene Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin

The Okyenhene, Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin, has called on the privileged in society to return to their roots, and support the development of their communities.

He made the call at a durbar organized by the Adonten division of the Akyem Abuakwa State as part of his 25th anniversary celebration on the Ofori Panin stool.

The Okyenhene acknowledged the significant achievements of citizens from Kukurantumi and Tafo. He noted that the Adonten division is a hub of knowledge, evidenced by the numerous educational institutions in Kukurantumi and Tafo.

He touted the contributions of prominent figures in the Information Technology sector and other areas to national development. He further encouraged those in high places to support Okyeman’s development agenda.

“Those who have benefited from their community should endeavour to come home and support. If someone pushed you to a higher place, you must pay back to society. The old men and women who took you through school are still alive; you must take care of them as well,” he stated.

The Okyenhene urged the Adonten division to continue cohabiting in unity, despite any internal conflicts, and to resolve chieftaincy matters through traditional and customary procedures.
