The paramount Chief of Dormaa Traditional Council Osagyefo Oseadeyo Dr. Agyemang Badu II has spoken out against the central bank’s new head office project which has been valued at US$250m according to the Minority in parliament.

The Dormaahene, who doubles as a High Court judge, lamented that this was not the time for the Bank of Ghana (BoG) to expend such huge sums of money on building an office complex.

Nana Agyemang Badu II made this statement during the 2023 First General Meeting of the Bono regional House of Chiefs at the Bono regional conference hall, Sunyani, and the enstoolment of Osabarima Asiedu Kotwi as the Chief of Kwatwoman and a member of the regional house of Chiefs.

He emphasized that it is unfathomable for the central bank of Ghana to spend US$250m for the building of a new office complex while a section of such amount of money can be given to Nananom within the country to steer the affairs of their associates for effective development stressing that he would have demolished the new building construction if he has the powers within his capacity because it is waste of time and the country’s resources.

The newly enstooled Chief, Osaberima Asiedu Kotwi, chief of kwatwoman and a member of the Bono regional house of chief explained the effects of chieftaincy disputes in community development justifying that chieftaincy litigations derail growth and improvement hence the need to end all litigations among chiefs and called for a united front to help fight for a common goal to ensure citizens and the entire communities they serve are well developed.

The Bono Regional Minister, Madam Justina Owusu Banahene also shared her thoughts with newsmen.
