The Omanhene called on chiefs to do more to bring progress and fight poverty in their communities.

Nana Afrane Okese said chiefs should provide the needed leadership by monitoring the people to tackle the socio-economic challenges facing them as traditional leaders, which, he said was the way to make chieftaincy relevant and sustain the loyalty of the people.

The Omanhene counseled the new chief to carry himself with dignity,eschew arrogance, and uphold the rich culture and traditional values of the people.

He advised Nana Obeng Panin II to avoid doing anything likely to create image problems for the chieftaincy institution.

Nana Obeng Panin pledged to work with passion to promote education and give the community a modern face-lift.
