“12 (1) There shall be a Traditional Council in each traditional area.

(2) The name and members of each Traditional Council shall be stated in the National Register of Chiefs maintained under section 59 of the Act”, the Chieftaincy Minister, Kofi Dzamesi who inaugurated these Councils, told Parliament Wednesday.

The newly inaugurated Councils are as follows: Aflao, Avenor, Vakpo, Adaklu, Aflfe and Battor.
