Residents of Asonomaso appeal to Asantehene to install chief

Residents of Asonomaso in the Kwabre East Municipality of the Ashanti Region are urging the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, to install a chief in the town to address growing concerns over crime and development.

The community has been without a chief for six years, following the destoolment of their previous leader, and residents say the lack of traditional leadership has led to an increase in criminal activity, drug abuse, and violence.

Assembly members I.K Badu and Osei Kwadwo expressed concern that the community’s reputation has suffered as a result, with Asonomaso becoming synonymous with crime and violence.

“The stigma of violence attached to Asonomaso community is affecting all concerned individuals,” they said.

“We urgently need a substantive chief and sub-chiefs to steer the affairs of this great community.”

Comparing Asonomaso to neighboring communities, residents say they lag behind in terms of development and infrastructure.

While Assembly members have provided some leadership, they say it is not enough, and the situation has left women and young people feeling apprehensive about their future.

Residents are appealing to the Asantehene to resolve the chieftaincy dispute and install a new chief to facilitate development and address the growing concerns.
