Paramount Chief of Lower Dixcove in the Ahanta West District, Nana Kwesi Agyemang IX, is appealing to well to do Ghanaians of Ahanta origin to disregard rumors of misfortune and come help Ahanta land with its development.
The Paramount Chief is scandalized by widely held perception that a misfortune will befall well to do Ahanta people when they come home during festivals.
Nana Agyemang IX described the perception as palpable falsehood and an affront to the development of Ahanta.
The Paramount Chief said these when he chaired the launch of the 2017 Kuntum Festival for the Chiefs and people of the Essikadu Traditional Area.
He said the celebration of Kuntum offers a unique and lifetime opportunity to Ahantas especially those who are away to get to know what has been happening in their absence.
He argued it is during the period that they can bring their various experiences and expertise to bear.
According to him the true essence of the celebration of Kuntum encourages selflessness and dedication to the development of Ahanta stressing therefore that no part of Kuntum is for any ill purpose.
