Despite the warnings by the National House of Chiefs, the Tuobodomhene endorses Nana Addo assuring him of the people’s full support during the elections.
Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo continues to add more traditional rulers to his list of well wishers. Like a few other chiefs, the Chief of Tuobodom in Brong Ahafo Region, Nana Obeng Ameyaw Barimah II, has endorsed Nana Akufo-Addo ahead of the November elections.
The Tuobodomhene made the endorsement on Sunday when Nana Addo paid a courtesy call on him at his Palace as part of his campaign tour of the region.
The chief gave his reasons to be that Nana Addo has a positive vision for the people of Ghana, hence, the need for people to vote massively for him in the coming elections. According to Nana Obeng Ameyaw Barimah II who also doubles as the Akyempemhene of the Techiman Traditional Council; “in this world, it is only those who embark on good missions who are encouraged and supported.”
Despite the warnings by the National House of Chiefs, the Tuobodomhene endorses Nana Addo assuring him of the people’s full support during the elections. He also called for a peaceful elections come November, warning against violence, the use of abusive and intemperate language before, during and after the elections.
Nana Obeng Ameyaw Barimah II also urged Nana Addo to build a nursing training college for them when he is elected in the November polls.
“When you win the election, the people of Tuobodom need a nursing training college,” he added.
Few days ago, the National House of Chiefs urged chiefs to desist from publicly declaring their support for any of the political aspirants ahead of the elections. The President of the National House of Chief Professor Nabila who condemned the act, had cited a section of the constitution which frowned against their participation in party politics. But as he said, one can only advice and not compel the chiefs to comply.
