E AKIM: E/R Min commends Okyenhene
Osagyefo Amotia Ofori Panyin, Okyenhene, has expressed confidence that the up coming general elections in December will come to pass and Ghana will remain a peaceful nation.
He said there was no need for the current political tension in the country if we see each other as partners in development and respect alternative ideas.
He therefore called on every individual to comport themselves during the period and allow institutions mandated to oversee the elections to do their work without any interference.
He disclosed this when the Regional Minister, Mr. Victor Smith paid a courtesy call on him in his palace during his tour of the East Akim Municipality.
He urged government to pay attention to education by ensuring quality training of teachers and ensuring that the necessary material and infrastructure are provided to enhance teaching and learning as well as make people responsible for non performance of students.
On illegal mining, Okyenhene pledged his support to the Regional Minister to clamp down all perpetrators of illegal mining activities and urged him not to relent on his ores to ensure the environment is protected.
Mr. Victor Smith on his part said that his major concern is illegal mining and pledged to bring sanity to the Akim community and other areas suffering from illegal mining.
According to him, the Regional Security Council has already taken decision and strategized to resolve the situation.
He however warned that nobody will be respected and that due process will be used in resolving the situation.
He therefore commended the Okyenhene for his support towards finding a lasting solution to the galamsey menace that has bedeviled the Eastern Region especially the Akim Traditional area.
