Speaking at a press conference at Kyebi in the Eastern Region, the state secretary of Akyem Abuakwa, D M Ofori-Atta told the Akyem Kotoku people that they are not ready to compromise in the dispute

The Akyem Abuakwa traditional council has served notice to the people of Nsawam Adoagyiri that it will not cede part of its land to them in the latest chieftaincy dispute between both parties.

Speaking at a press conference at Kyebi in the Eastern Region, the state secretary of Akyem Abuakwa, D M Ofori-Atta told the Akyem Kotoku people that they are not ready to compromise in the dispute.

Ofori-Atta said the Abuakwa state has maintained a healthy and cordial relations with the Akyem Kotoku people and will strive to keep that relationship going forward.

He said at the appropriate time a new chief will be installed at Nsawam Adoagyiri.

“The actions of a few persons with parochial monetary interest to present George Twum as chief of Adoagyiri threaten the public peace and communal solidarity in these areas,” Ofori-Atta said.

“The appropriate law enforcement measures shall be taken if the situation persists,” he added.

The Adoagyiri stool has been vacant since the death of its chief Barima Adu Korkor in 2007.
