The Chief has thrown his support for the MCE in his Municipal.

"I am the custodian of the land and therefore he has no power to stage any protest contrary to my rules because the Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu, the Overlord has given Tafo community to me to preside over. ," he said whiles addressing the Media at the palace.
Nana Agyen Frimpong Ababio has advised Mr Prempeh to come in consultation with him to sort out any differences if there is a lack anywhere.
He elaborated that Honorable Obeng is the first MCE of the Municipal and therefore, there is the need to continue his term of office whiles NPP is still in power.
