Asantehene cautions Akufo-Addo against ……..

The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has warned President Nana Akufo-Addo not to act on reports from his appointees without independent verification.

According to the Asantehene, trusted officials who only give positive input may mislead leaders.

As a result, he advised the President to visit significant projects on a regular basis to get firsthand information on their progress.

Regular visits to project sites, according to the Asantehene, will allow the President to keep up to current on the status of the project.

Appropriate decisions for the welfare of the people and the government will be made as a result of such visits.

“It is good for the President to visit the projects himself. If you listen to reports from the people, they will always deliver the positives. But if you visit the projects, you will see the negatives and make necessary changes,” he said.

The Asantehene, on the other hand, wants the President to fulfill his mandate and ensure development in the Ashanti Region.

“During your reign, the Ashanti Region has seen certain changes. We’re putting our faith in you to finish the exceptional ones,” he added.

The Asantehene’s remarks come after the President paid a courtesy call on the Ashanti Region as part of his tour.

On his part, President Akufo-Addo stated that the government is committed to ensuring that every area receives a fair share of the national cake.

“We haven’t been able to keep all of our commitments, but we are making progress. There has been a significant improvement in the area of roads. There were some difficulties in the inland port of Boakra, but we’ve worked out a solution, and we’ll be up and running soon,” he said.

The President observed the progress of development at the Kumasi Airport as part of his visit.

The airport’s upgrade to international status is 77 percent complete, with completion scheduled for August of next year.

The present airport building, according to project consultant Nana Ametepe, will be removed once the new structure is built.
