It is unfortunate that the Sunyani traditional council is politicizing the constitutionally wrongful actions of one of their own, much to the dismay of their subjects and electorates of the vast region. On the streets of Sunyani, the people are blunt about how immediate relatives of this NDC outspoken paramount chief have secured massive financial contracts and deals from the JM administration thereby turning billionaires over this period.
For gathering the courage to point out the distasteful political remarks of a chief, to whom Asomah-cheremeh is subject, speak lots about what he can do as an administrator, and how far he will go to defend the constitution of the land, and the rights of its citizens. Notwithstanding, the regional house of chiefs has since apologized to Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo and the NPP for the poor political actions and utterances of some of its members during the campaign season.
A chief and his immediate family or friends benefitting from a ruling party or sitting president is no crime, however, it is in contravention of the 1992 constitution of Ghana article 276(1), and reinforced by article 94 (3) (c) for the chief to openly engage in politics as the Sunyani paramountcy did.
The response of the Sunyani people to this brouhaha has been clear and repeated during the polls with massive wins in both constituencies, and on the nomination of Mr. Asomah-cheremeh as regional minister designate, a rousing welcome on the streets of Sunyani.
From the foregoing, it is prudent to conclude the following; the people are in favor of the bold and astute prowess of the NPP regional chairman, and his future position as Regional Minister, Sunyani represents only two constituencies out of the twenty nine, the B/A regional house of chiefs has pleaded for forgiveness on behalf of several of their own who made wild political utterances during the electioneering campaign, and thus negates the current stance of the Sunyani traditional council.
In furtherance of these, and for the sake of progress in the region, the Leadership and Integrated Development Organization (LIDO- USA) pleads that the Sunyani Traditional Council temper pride with fairness and respect for their subjects, and end this no winner controversy. Asomah-cheremeh is one of their illustrious, brilliant and resilient sons, and support for his administration is a win for all.
