President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has launched the Kwahu State Book.

 

A ceremony was held in Mpraeso in the Eastern Region on Saturday, April 16 for the launch of book.

 

In his address, President Akufo-Addo expressed worry half of the national security budgetary allocations are spent on resolving chieftaincy disputes.

 

He was of the view that the documentation of traditional council state books will help resolve chieftaincy disputes.

The National Coordinator of the Ghana State Book Board, Bright Botwe, says findings indicate that 65 percent of the National Security concerns emanate from chieftaincy disputes around succession.

The concerns informed the initiative of documenting history of traditional state books.

Its first work came out in 2012 at the Offinso Traditional Council followed by Techiman and Senya later on. The Kwahu state is the fourth to be worked on.

The 3,000-paged book documents the history, culture, customs of the Kwahu state and allowed for critical review every 10 years.

The President of the National House of Chiefs, Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi, advised chiefs to stop wasting resources, which could be channeled into development, at the court and judiciary committee in settling disputes.

“There are lots of chieftaincy disputes in the country. Resources spent by the state and MMDCEs to resolve the chieftaincy disputes is worrying. I urge chiefs and families to buy the book and read well to be informed. Where you have a critical different view use appropriate means for redress.”

President Nana Akufo-Addo is hopeful the Kwahu State Book would resolve chieftaincy disputes in the Kwahu enclave.

“I commend you for the initiative, I share in the view of the President of the National House of Chiefs, I do believe the book will help reduce chieftaincy disputes. Half of the monies spent at the National Security goes into managing chieftaincy disputes. I can recall Yendi, Dogomba among several others.”
