Sunyani Traditional Council rejects B/A minister nominee

The Sunyani Traditional Council has rejected the Minister-nominee for the Brong Ahafo Region, named by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday.

According to the council, Kweku Asomah-Cheremeh,who was named for position among nine others for the other regions,  has over the years disrespected them with unwarranted attacks on chiefs in the area, and has refused to honour their invitations.

Addressing a press conference in Sunyani today [Thursday], Nana Obama Bofotiaboa-Amponsem II, Krontihene of Sunyani, also accused Asomah-Cheremeh of inciting residents against the Council.

Speaking in a separate interview with Otec news to throw more light on their qualms, Nana Kwaku Sarbeng Ababio, Akwamuhene of the Sunyani Traditional Area, said the council cannot work with the new minister nominee.

“…In the immediate past, his conduct and character which he exhibited towards the Traditional Council is such that we cannot work with him in his capacity as a regional minister.”

He also explained that, they believe Mr. Asomah-Cheremeh’s nomination should be withdrawn because of some actions he took in the past, including some disparaging comments he made “at a press conference almost about a year ago, his refusal to attend to the call of the Omanhence, his refusal to heed to the advice of his own party’s council of elders, and the way he replies to letters of his clients so far as invitations to this palace are concerned.”

“This is in short what we have to tell him, and what we have to tell the president that for these reasons, we cannot corporate with him or support him as the new Brong Ahafo Regional Minister,” Nana Ababio reiterated.

The Traditional Council however congratulated the president on his election, and pledged their readiness to partner the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
