The youth in Akyem Bontodiase in the Akyemansa District of the Eastern region have raised a red flag on their chief and elders as they accused them of being stumbling blocks to development in the community and hence support the dis-enstoolment of their chief by the Royal Family as they believe it is the only option to pave way for development in the community.
Speaking on behalf of the youth in Akyem Bontodiase during a press conference, Samuel Agyei Donkor alleged that since seventeen (17) years, he ascended the throne, Obrempong Adakwah Gyamenah II, has nothing to show in terms of development but only interested in the sale of lands without any proper account to the people of Akyem Bontodiase.
He stated that the Paramount Chief of Akyem Kotoku Traditional Area upon the Royal Family’s trying to dis-stool the Bontodiase Chief to pave the way for development has disallowed and told him to continue his work as a chief which the youth are unhappy about.
Some of the youth of Akyem Bontodiase who were at the presser also added their voices as they poured out their reasons for rejecting their chief.
Meanwhile, the Chief of Akyem Bontodiase has debunked the allegations by the youth and stated that the community has seen development in his reign as the chief for the past seventeen years and will always strive harder for more development for his people.
