The acting President of the Council, Nana Adjei Nkyerewie who made the announcement at a durbur held in honour of President Akufo Addo on Monday 7th August 2017, said about 40-days ago they observed 3-days fasting and Prayers and asked God for forgiveness for the dastardly act that occured in the town and they believe God has forgiven them, hence the decision to Change the name in order to give the town a new brand.
