Traditional Council dismisses Krobo mountain sale rumours

Traditional Council dismisses Krobo mountain sale rumours

Nene Asada Ahor addressing the press conference



The Manya Krobo Traditional Council has dismissed rumours that designer replica handbags the Konor (chief) of the area, Nene Sakite II has sold to a private investor the historic Krobo mountain near Okwenya junction (Akuse) in the Eastern Region.

The council also refuted recent media claims which have suggested that the area was in a turmoil, dissension and instability arising out of the alledged sale of the mountain, the ancestral home of the Krobos which housed them for hundreds of years before their eviction to the present location in 1892 by the colonial government.

Nene Asada Ahor I, Chief of Akuse and Public Relations Officer of the Council said these at a press conference held yesterday at the palace at Odumase-Krobo.

He said, “The Krobo Mountain is a precious historical site and home to valuable relics which cannot and will never be sold. There have not been any secret deals, financial arrangements, procurement or receipt of funds of any kind whatsoever with respect to this matter by the Traditional Council or the Konor, Nene Sakite II”.

There has never been any contractual arrangement to excavate, sell or remove any historical items from the Krobo Mountain. Any such act would constitute a taboo and we are mindful of that, he stressed.

What sparked these rumours, according to the PRO, was a mere exercise to clean and upgrade portions of the mountain site based on a robust discussion by the traditional council. The decision to proceed with the project was part of a series of economic activities to advance the development of the area through diligent, honest and transparent economic initiatives which remain an important component of the development strategies.

He indicated that the Konor has since set up a cultural committee to oversee any engagement with sacred, cultural or historical sites in Krobo. The formation of this committee, he stated, was consistent with the strong cultural institutional framework needed to protect and advance the cultural interests of the Manya Krobo State. 

In a related development, the council also dismissed the fast spreading allegations in the media of disunity within its ranks and file.

Nene Ahor said, “The Council remains united and continues to be committed to providing strong leadership through good governance, transparency, accountability and collaboration. It continues in its vigilance and commitment to strong and democratic practices of planning and decision making in the best interests of the State.

He advised the media to remain balanced, fair and objective, promoting responsibility, thoroughness and exceptional journalistic ethics, especially when the issues at hand are complex and many-sided and where rumours and insufficient information can contribute to perceptions that might not be accurate.
