Nana Gyasi Amoako Adabor II, the chief of Hwidiem, has called on those in authority to serve the people diligently and with humility.
He entreated them to seek the welfare of the people and strive for maximum development for their respective areas since it is their responsibility to do so, but not to lord it over them.
He stated that gone are the days when the people were going to war with arms and ammunition to capture and seize properties, but said nowadays that battle ground is the brain and how best one can bring their expertise to bear in order to contribute to the developmental agenda of the area through critical thinking.
Nana Gyasi said this at his palace at Hwidiem, near Agogo, in the Asante Akim North District in the Ashanti Region when tradition rituals were being performed to coronate Nana Oduro Baah Atefa as the Saanahene of the Hwidiem traditional area.
Nana Oduro Baah Atefa, who is known in his private life as Kwabena Atefa, is a 64-year-old retired public sector worker who has now taken an appointment with the Trust Care Hospital, one of the leading hospitals in Kumasi, due to his vast experience.
Nana Gyasi further admonished position holders to ensure a lifestyle that would reflect and project a positive image about the various institutions that they represent so as to make it more attractive to others to be ready to serve in.
“Let faithfulness be your portion and work hard to promote peace and harmony in all your endeavours,” he told the new sub-chief.
Meanwhile, the new sub-chief, Nana Oduro Baah Atefa, later in an interview made a solemn pledge to unite the people and help bring development to the area.
His main agenda is to promote agriculture and education among the youth and work hard to minimise teenage pregnancy, which is fast taking a toll on development of the community in order to ensure a brighter future for the youth and the area at all levels.
