Nana Osei Adusah IV Of Atwima Koforidua (Akrofrom)
Ghanaian chiefs must develop their areas with money accrued from their rampant and gargantuan sales of Land.
The Akrofrom Odikro of Atwima Koforidua township, in the Atwima Nwabiagya North constituency, Nana Osei Adusah IV has wisely raised concerns over the high increase of teenage pregnancy in his community.
In an interview with OMG Ghana.com on the way forward for his town and citizens, the chief bemoaned the increasing nature of teenage pregnancy which has been catapulting the reduction of education standard in most communities, pertaining mostly to the young girls.
Odikro, Nana Osei Adusah IV, has started putting up a two storey classroom block for the Atwima Koforidua L/A Primary School with the help of his local branch committee to raise education standard in his community.
According to the Chief, his “Better Agenda” outfit has already spent under issues of development and infrastructure about 60 thousand Ghana cedis on road construction alone in an effort to better the lot of his people.
The 42-year-old chief, Nana Osei Adusah IV, said “Otumfour is my mentor and is therefore highly motivated by the leadership style of Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.” Nana Adusah further said, I have also made provisions for street lights in my community to reduce criminality (in darkness) and also ensure reduction of violent clashes in the area.
The hard working and selfless Chief is using the opportunity to invite investors into his community to help raise the living standard of the people in his community.
