The Krontihene of Sunyani Traditional Council, Oboaman Bofotia Boamponsem II has charged the Brong Ahafo regional Police Commander and other stakeholders of the region to help close down all ”wee base” within the region.
He said, the Nana Bosoma Market, Zongo down and other areas in the Sunyani municipality are the notable areas where ‘wee’ smokers hide to smoke and perpetrate various crimes.
The outspoken Chief added that, “Drunkenness and excessive smoking are damaging the future of the youth and if care is not taking the future of sunyani municipality and Ghana as a whole will not be bright”.
Oboaman Bofotia believes that, there are some parcels of land within the sunyani township owned by some individuals who have failed to develop them and such lands have become the hiding place for criminals.
“I am therefore appealing to the lands commission and the chief of sunyani to re- allocate such lands for individuals who are ready to develop them”,he asserted.
Speaking to newsmen during the Yuletide, he charged the Youth to take advantage of opportunities such as the government flagship policies; free SHS, Nation Builder Corps and others to develop themselves.
Nana Bofotia commended President Akufo Addo for the developmental projects he has executed since his assumption into office.
