“Chiefs are stakeholders, not your competitors”-Techiman Manhene to MMDCEs
Oseadeyo Akumfi Ameyaw IV counsel Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives on chiefs contribution toward national development.
The Paramount Chief of Techiman Traditional Area in the Bono East region, Oseadeyo Akumfi Ameyaw IV has called on Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives to consider traditional rulers as stakeholders and not competitors.
He made this observation when the Techiman South and North Chief Executives paid a courtesy call on the chief at his palace.
According to him, chiefs are partners in national development thereby calling on Municipal and District Chief Executives to recognize them as such and not parade themselves as lords over traditional rulers.
He added that it will be detrimental to the nation’s growth if MDCEs regard themselves as different people from the chiefs in their localities.
Oseadeyor Akumfi Ameyaw IV who is also a member of the Council of State advised chief executives to be wary of people who sing praises of them as many may wish their downfall in the absence.
He cautioned party members against speaking ill of president representatives especially when their expectations are not met.
Meanwhile, Benjamin Yaw Gyarko, Municipal Chief Executive for Techiman South and his colleague Techiman North District Chief Executive, Everson Addo Donkor expressed gratitude to the chief for his counsel.
