Elmina (C/R), July 22,
GNA – Nana Kodwo Kondua VI, the Omanhen of Edina Traditional Area, has called
on Africans in the Diaspora who hailed from Elmina to support the development
of the town.

“I wish to urge
you, our Diaspora friends and indigenes sojourning abroad, to lead the path of
the socio-economic transformation of our community to give life to the
economically weak and underprivileged,” he said.

The Omanhen made the
call when a three-member delegation of African descent from the United States
of America (USA) paid a curtsy call on him at his palace in Elmina on Friday.

Members of the
delegation were Dr Sandi Williams, Dr Vincent Cutis and Mr Luesley Buyant who
were accompanied by Mr Philip Landon and Mr Joseph Kyeremateng, members of the
New Patriotic Party.

Nana Kondua urged the
people to see the development of the town as a collective responsibility and
contribute their quota accordingly.

He said the Elmina
Township lacked educational, health and sanitation facilities as well as
employment avenues.

He urged the people in
the Diaspora to contribute to the Community Endowment Fund, which he had
established to cater for the needy children in the area.

Nana Kondua reiterated
his unflinching commitment to providing the congenial atmosphere for investors
to revamp the City of Elmina and make it a preferred choice.

Dr Sandi Williams,
Spokesperson for the delegation, thanked the chiefs and the people of Elmina
for the warn reception.

She pledged their
readiness to help develop the community, especially in the area of education
and women empowerment.

Members of the delegation
were presented with beads, kente and the traditional “ahenemaa”
slippers.
