The Paramount Chief of the Akyem Kotoku Traditional Area and President of the Council, His Royal Majesty Oseadeayo Dr. Frimpong Manso IV, paid a courtesy call on the member of Parliament for Akim Oda Constituency, Hon. Alexander Akwasi Acquah, at his office in Akyem Kotoku Ahenkro on Friday, August 18, 2023.
The familiarization visit came after the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs admitted Oseadeeyo Dr. Frimpong Manso IV as the Omanhene of the Akyem Kotoku Traditional Area and President of the Council after he had been gazetted by the National House of Chiefs.
He was accompanied by the Krontihene of Akyem Kotoku Traditional Area, Obrempong Gyamfi Saforo Kyereh; the Akyem Anamasehene and acting Nifahene of the traditional area, Obrempong Tabi Anom; the Gyaasehene, Obrempong Amo Kyeretwie; and an entourage of sub-chiefs, kingmakers, elders, and some queenmothers.
Oseadeeyo Dr. Frimpong Manso IV said that the visit is a component of his familiarization visits with legislators and is intended to strengthen the bonds of effective partnership to speed up development in the traditional area.
The President of the Council and the Omanhene of the Akyem Kotoku Traditional Area commended the Member of Parliament for Akyem Oda for being a distinguished son of the Akyem Kotoku Traditional Area.
He believed that Hon. Alexander Akwasi Acquah had shown the residents of Akyem Oda and, indirectly, some other areas of the region, what great leadership looked like.
The Omanhene recounted the MP’s work within just three (3) of his allotted four (4) years in office and stated that despite every challenge, the lawmaker continued to show genuine leadership to the constituency.
His Royal Majesty Oseadeayo Dr. Frimpong Manso commended the Member of Parliament for his unequaled contribution to nation-building and the development of Kotokuman, especially the championing and provision of scholarships to the poor and needy, the reconstruction of Oda’s central market, which was destroyed by fire in 2021, town roads, youth employment, and youth empowerment in Oda.
Oseadeeyo Dr. Frimpong Manso IV cited a number of projects initiated and executed by the office of the MP, with special reference to the championing and provision of scholarships to the poor and needy, the construction of town roads, youth employment, youth empowerment, and the ongoing reconstruction of an ultra-modern Akyem Oda Central Market complex, which was destroyed by fire on Monday, September 13, 2021.
According to Oseadeeyo, he is very impressed with the level of work done on the market so far.
He appealed to him not to rest on his oars but to continue to serve the people in his constituency and Kotokuman as well.
Oseadeeyo Dr. Frimpong Manso IV praised the Hon. Alexander Akwasi Acquah for his significant contribution to the ongoing renovation of the long-abandoned Akyem Oda Sports Stadium, but he also expressed concern over its halt and pleaded with the MP to do everything in his power to see that the project is finished to enable Kotoku Royals FC to play their home matches at their home grounds, which will also help boost the socio-economic activities in Oda.
In his remarks, the Kotokumanhene vowed to work with the MP, government appointees, and all the political parties within his jurisdiction to the fullest extent possible and to promote cohesion, peace, harmony, and development in Kotoku.
The Omanhene took advantage of the occasion to thank President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the National and Eastern Regional House of Chiefs, as well as the MP, for their heroic efforts in bringing Akyem Kotoku’s long-term peace and unity.
For his part, the Member of Parliament for Akim Oda, Hon. Alexander Akwasi Acquah, remarked that despite the difficulties he has faced since taking office, he has not given up.
He promised to continue to fight for the improvement of his constituents and pleaded with the chiefs to assist him in his endeavors.
In order to facilitate development, he urged Kotokumanhene Oseadiayo, Dr. Frimpong Manso, and its subchiefs to collaborate closely with government appointees in the area.
He used the opportunity to enlighten His Royal Majesty Oseadeayo Frimpong Manso on numerous developments that have taken place since he was elected as the member of parliament for the Akyem Oda constituency.
Additionally, Hon. Alexander Akwasi Acquah and party executives extended their gratitude to His Majesty and his subchiefs for coming to see him and engaging in a thorough discussion about Kotokuman’s progress.
