Omanhene of the Dormaa Traditional Area, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyeman Badu II has cautioned the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) about the seeming arrogance some of its officers are exhibiting, warning that just as other regimes are no more, so will this regime go, but Chieftaincy remains.
This comes after the National House of Chiefs expressed worry over the posture of the EC regarding its decision to compile a new voters register “without proper consultation”.
The traditional ruler was expressing concerns over the statement of the NPP General Secretary John Boadu that Chiefs who take a position on the subject of the voters register were lawless people.
The Dormaahene believes that is an insult of huge proportions on Nananom.
Nana Dormaahene said the comments were in bad taste and called on the leadership of the NPP and the president to call Mr Boadu to order.
John Boadu leads a big party, he must be careful, as chiefs we don’t just get up and talk anyhow. We know our role and so we know what we are talking about. I have seen many regimes go and come but the Dormaa stool is still here.” The revered Chief fumed.
He said they saw the regimes of John Kufuor, John Mills and Mahama and so will Akufo-Addo’s reign also end.
“I witness that of Rawlings, Kufour, Prof Mills, John Mahama has come and gone and so will Nana Addo. Don’t they know they will also leave power at some point? How can John Boadu describe us lawless? We have invited but they don’t want to come and instead of people John Boadu to condemn it he’s rather insulting us. Well I know very soon they will be coming around for campaign and we will be here waiting for them.” He added.
