The 2020 manifesto launching of the NPP government in the first capital town of Ghana without following the traditionally accepted way of paying a visit to the Omanhen at the people’s palace for discourse on critical information and intelligence, has catapulted into a public mayhem as to either the act was a disrespect to traditions and the people of Cape Coast or the due protocol?
On the morning show “IN THIS TOWN” of YES FM, it became the subject matter with the following shared:
It’s necessary to keep that tradition of visiting traditional leaders when in their jurisdictions for an information government appointees might not know or tell the president. If Ex USA President Obama was informed of the importance to comply then President Akuffo Addo has no excuse.
AKOTOKYINHEN, A SUB CHIEF OF CAPE COAST SAID:
The modern structure of governance doesn’t makes it compulsory for president Akuffo Addo to go to the palace for exchange of information though it hurt for him not to have done it. The most important thing is knowing the developmental projects for us, we have to ensure it’s done.
MR. FAYA, A RENOWN FIGURE ALSO OPINED:
Both Oguaahen, chairman of manifesto launching and the president were late to the programme because they met earlier at the regional house of chiefs to talk, and hope we see the success of both projects.
