Begoro Kingmakers apologize to Okyenhene over false allegations


Kingmakers in Begoro Traditional Area under Akyem Abuakwa State in the Eastern Region have rendered unqualified apology to Okyenhene Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin over misguided comments made by some few disgruntled members of the Asona Royal family last week.

The issues were in relation to chieftaincy dispute surrounding the enstoolment of new Begorohene three years after the demise of Daasebre Awuah Kotoko II who was Begorohene and also Benkumhene of Akyem Abuakwa.

Some few aggrieved members of Asona Royal Family led by their spokesperson Daniel Darko held a press conference on February 27, 2023 to unwittingly accused Okyenhene Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin for attempting to circumvent customs by imposing one Amfo Amoama who is not qualified to ascend the stool.

They also contended that, Okyenhene has disregarded an appeal case filed at the national house of chiefs restraining all parties from installing new Begorohene, and had through state secretary of Akyem Abuakwa, fixed date for installation of Amfo Amoama therefore called on President Akufo Addo and IGP Dr.GeorgeAkufo Dampare to intervene to stop the process to avoid bloody violence.

Three years after the demise of Daasebre Awuah Kotoko II, Begorohene and Benkumhene of Akyem Abuakwa traditional area, a new Chief has not been enstooled due to protracted dispute among the four royal houses in Asona Royal family that ascend the stool.

Four persons are currently contesting the stool.

Speaking to Journalists, the Kingmakers led by Ankobeahene of Begoro Traditional Area, Barfuor Owiredu Agyarko Minta III said Amfo Amoama from Antwi Kwasi family has been duly elected by kingmakers with majority decision and same has been upheld by the Judicial Committee of Akyem Abuakwa traditional Council and Eastern Regional House of Chiefs as qualified to ascend the stool.

He, therefore, condemned allegations against Okyenhene of attempt to circumvent customs to enstool Amfo Amoama as Begorohene.

Meanwhile, addressing the media, the Head of Antwi Kwasi family of Begoro, Abusuapanyin Obeng Boateng apologized to Okyenhene and urged the opposing faction to respect the judgements of Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council and Eastern regional House of Chiefs.

He urged the public to disregard reports that Begoro is sitting on a looming time bomb of bloody violence stating that Begoro is peaceful, and enstoolment of new Begorohene will be peaceful when Okyenhene fixes new date .

For Abusuapanyin Kegya and Ragent Queen Mother of Begoro, Nana Adwoa Kessewa  the three year vacant state of the Begoro stool is affecting development in Fanteakwa District therefore imperative for Amfo Amoama to be enstooled as early as possible to enable him facilitate development in Begoro.
