Former MP Enstooled As Chief In Adeiso
A former Member of Parliament (MP) for Upper West Akyem in the 5th and 6th Parliament of Ghana, Joseph Sam Amankwanor has been enstooled Mfantsehene in Adeiso Traditional Area in the Eastern region.
According to tradition, his stool name is Nana Kwaku Botchwey II. He was sworn in as chief in a ceremony held at Adeiso Palace having been paraded in town as tradition demands.
Adeiso Traditional Area is a diversified community because it shares its border with the Greater Accra and Central regions.
Speaking to the media, Nana Kwaku Botchwey II highlighted his commitment to peace, unity, and development in the area.
He however bemoaned growing youth unemployment in the Upper West Akyem District over the past few years which has resulted in an increase in social and moral degradation.
He, therefore, appealed to the government to immediately intervene to help address the rising unemployment rate in the area since it is becoming a threat to security.
The Chief of Adeiso, Osabarima Asare Oduro expressed his excitement that after five years the Fante stool became vacant, a successor has been found to occupy it.
Osabarima Asare Oduro also raised serious concerns over growing insecurity in the area due to increasing pilfering and burglary attributing it to unemployment.
He stressed interventions for job opportunities for the youth and urged the government to expand a market facility in Adeiso to contain the increasing market women population forcing many to ply their trade on the road.
