Earlier, we reported that a Chinese National identified as Mr. Sun Qiang has been enstooled as the Development Chief(Nkosuohene) at Asenyanso Village in the Afram Plains. Well, reports reaching us has it that he has rejected his chieftaincy title because people of the community and the nation are criticizing him.
The Chinese man was enstooled under the traditional stool name Barima Kofi Ayeboafo at Kwahu Afram Plains popularly called Afram Agya in the Eastern Region.
Speaking on his behalf at a press conference, Baba Issah who happens to be the spokesperson of Mr. Qiang said that he has denounced his chieftaincy title following the anger expressed towards the chief by the people of Kwahu Abetifi as to why he will crown a foreigner as the Development Chief in the community.
He also said that even though Mr. Qiang has denounced his chieftaincy title, he will still continue to contribute to the development of the community.
“He is thankful to all of you for the opportunity. However, today, what he’s saying to Ghanaians and the world is that he is no more interested in the chieftaincy title. He came for development, and so he is dissociating himself from the title.” Baba Issah said.
“The development of Afram Agya is a priority to him and so he still remains focused on the development of the area. He is, therefore, appealing to everyone who is interested in farming to come to the area and do so in order to create employment for the youth and people of the area,” he added.
The Chinese man who operates an ethanol factory in the area also extended an invitation to businessmen and farmers interested in cassava farming to come to the area and cultivate cassava farms which will supply the factory to enable him to reach the 700 jobs goal he set for the factory.
