President Akufo-Addo has assured the Chiefs and people of Drobo in the Bono Region of a peaceful settlement of age-old conflict between Drobo and Japekrom traditional areas.
This follows a request by the Omanhene of Drobo, Okokyredom Sakyi Ako for the President to intervene in the conflict.
The delegation of Chiefs from the Traditional Council led by Okokyredom Sakyi Ako went to thank the President for attending the funeral of Omanhene Beyeeman Kwadwo Bosea Gyinantwi.
The Chief used the occasion to appeal to President Akufo-Addo to lift the over one-year curfew imposed on Drobo and a number of towns. He said the curfew is negatively affecting economic, social and religious activities.
Okokyredom Sakyi Ako also appealed to the President to set up a Presidential Commission of Inquiry to look into the October 2018 communal clashes.
He wants the bad nature of their roads to be fixed, the establishment of TVET institute and the construction of a dormitory for Drobo SHS.
He thanked the President for honouring his manifesto promise of Free Senior High School (SHS), planting for food and jobs and the restoration of the nursing and teacher trainee allowances.
President Akufo-Addo said he will do his best to resolve the conflict. On the other demands by the Chief, the President assured them that urgent attention will be given to it.
The Suma Traditional Council was at the Presidency to invite the President to their annual Akwantu Kesea Festival.
The Sunyani Traditional Council was also at the Presidency to inform the President of the passing of the Queen mother of Sunyani, Nana Yaa Nyamaa Puduo.
Funeral activities for the late Queen mother will be on the 25th, 26th and 27th of this month.
