The Brong Ahafo Regional House of Chiefs has held their end of year

general meeting in Sunyani, on the 16th of December 2014.

The purpose of the meeting was to address the house on the

achievements, challenges and some major activities that took place in

the year 2014.

President of the Brong Ahafo Regional House of Chiefs and Yeji-Hene,

Pimampim Yaw Kagbrese V, in his welcome address said the House is

making strenous efforts to settle the numerous chieftaincy cases that

are pending before the Judicial Committee.

"It is rather sad to note that, this Region has in the past few years

been plagued with perennial chieftaincy disputes that have become a

threat not only to the Regional Security or National Security Council,

but also seek to undermine the integrity and authority of the

chieftaincy institution which does not auger well for its development

and sustenance."

He said the House in conjunction with the Center for Indigenous

Knowledge and Organizational Development (CIKOD) (with funding from

Konrad Adenaur Stiftung (KAS) has organized a sensitization programme

for the various Traditional/Divisional Councils in the Region, which

was aimed at sensitizing members of the various Councils about the use

of the Charter on the Management of Natural and Socio Cultural

Resources which was drawn and adopted by the House this year.

Pimampim Yaw Kagbrese V, called on Nananom to educate their subjects

on bush fires as we are entering the dry season. "We must be very

careful about the use of fire, let us be very cautious never to do

anything that could lead to disaster in our homes, farm and work


The Deputy Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Hon. Justice Samuel Adjei

who represented the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, expressed his

sincere appreciation to Nananom for their tremendous participation in

the just ended National Festival of Arts and Culture.

He said the region is reputed as one of the most peaceful in the

country, and this fate has been achieved by the hard work of the Brong

Ahafo Security Council, the Municipal and Districts Sub-Committees,

Nananom and the various Security Services in the Region.

"In order to sustain the level of stability, we have been able to

provide resources to the extend that every district has been allocated

a vehicle for patrol and other security operations and this has made

to a reduction of crime rate in the region."
