The Krontihene of Sunyani Traditional Council, Oboaman Bofotia Boa Amponsem II, has denied the allegation levelled against him by the management of Sunyani Senior High (SUSEC) and the Old Students Association (SOSA) that he has sold out some lands which belong to the school.
On May 13, the Old Students Association led the students to demonstrate and register their displeasure about the encroachment of the school land.
Some of the inscriptions on the placards carried by the students read:
“Don’t Sell Our Lands, Sunyani Krontihene.” However, Nana Bofotia Boa Amponsem II in a press briefing in Sunyani said, “The brutal truth is that the entire land on which Sunyani Senior High School is situated is for 4 families, namely: Nana Sunyanihene’s family, Krontihene’s family, Tuntumhene’s family and Dwaatoahene family’s ancestral lands of which the Government of Ghana, both past and present had neither paid any compensation to our predecessors/ancestors nor us. I have personally never sold or even made my mind to sell any portion of the School’s land to any person, body or institution.”
He said the publication on the placards of the SOSA demonstrators to the extent that he is selling Sunyani Senior High School’s land was palpably false and there was no iota of truth in that publication.
“I find this serious allegation against me by the SOSA demonstrators that i was indiscriminately selling the School lands as a sharp and cynical attack on my personality and the traditional/customary position that I hold in Sunyani.”
According to him, the encroachers on the lands are not ghosts or angels but are living and could be ascertained or identified.
“I therefore require an immediate public retraction of the information on the placards that portrayed me as the one selling School lands and above all, an unqualified apology from the organizers of the demonstration for the terminal injury caused to my reputation and the Stool that I currently occupy.”
The Sunyani Krontihene has giving the organizers of the demonstration up to Friday, May 22nd to prove that his the one selling the school’s land, and he will abrocate his position as Krontihene of the Sunyani Traditional Council if they are able to do so.
