Amasaman (G/A), Aug.
12, GNA – Traditional rulers of Ga West Municipality have been advised to
liaise with philanthropists and individuals who would participate in the Homowo
Festival to create educational trust funds to support needy children.

Mr Clement Nii Lamptey
Wilkinson, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Ga West, gave the advice in
an interview with journalists after meeting with the chiefs at Amasaman.

He said education was
the key to success and that the monies spent on chieftaincy litigations could
also be used to establish the funds to support children to go to school to
become useful assets to the society.

Mr Wilkinson said due
to chieftaincy disputes, eight out of the 60 communities in the Municipality
have been banned from sprinkling the “Kpokpoi,” the traditional meal of the
Festival, until next year.

They include Mayera,
Faase, Nsakina, and Kojo Ashong, however, he said, they could go ahead to
celebrate without sprinkling.

“Communities like
Amasaman, Pokuase, Pobiman, Ofankor and Amomole will, nonetheless, sprinkle the
Kpokpoi without any interference,” the MCE said.

He said the Pokuase
chieftaincy dispute had been resolved amicably and the Municipal Security
Committee had given the people the green light to celebrate the Homowo
Festival.
