Akuapems hold durbar to climax Odwira 10/9/2007
Akropong-Akuapem (E/R), Oct. 6, GNA - Eastern Regional Minister Kwadwo Affram-Asiedu has appealed to Akuapems to co-exist peacefully, reiterating that conflicts are destructive and could be a massive drain on national resources.

Addressing a durbar of the chiefs and people at Akropong to climax this year''s Akwapem Odwira festival, Mr Affram Asiedu urged them to unite and support their traditional rulers and other leaders for progress.

He expressed dissatisfaction that only about 28 percent of the area''s population of more than 104,000 had registered with the Akuapem North District Health Insurance Scheme as of June this year, and urged the communities to subscribe to it.

The Okuapehene, Oseadeeyo Addo Dankwa III, appealed to political parties and their supporters to conduct themselves in a manner that would promote peace and harmony between them and their opponents in their campaigns leading to next year''s elections.

He also called on the Electoral Commission to continue to ensure the conduct of credible elections in the country.

Oseadeeyo Addo Dankwa called on Akuapems to unite and fight against poverty, disease, illiteracy and unemployment, instead of engaging in ethnic conflict.

He expressed appreciation to the government for reconstructing the Mamfe-Adenta road and urged communities living along the road to keep it tidy.

He also appealed to the authorities to expedite work on the Aburi-Nsawam road project.

The Okuapehene appealed to the Eastern Regional Minister for a bus each for the Presbyterian University College at Akropong and the Akrofi-Christaller Memorial Institute of Theology, Mission and Culture to facilitate the smooth running of the two institutions.
