The Omanhene of Oguaa Traditional Area, Osabarima Kwesi Attah II said he is okay with ongoing developmental projects in the Central Region under the current National Democratic Congress (NDC) government, leg by President John Mahama.
“Am okay with the number of projects in the region because they are the best in the country,” Osabarima Kwesi Attah II said this on Okay FM, an Accra based radio station.
He specifically mentioned the newly constructed 16,000-seater capacity Cape Coast Stadium and the Kotokuraba Market which is expected to be ready between July and August this year.
Describing the Cape Coast stadium, Osabarima Kwesi Attah II said “the stadium is the best in the country. It has tartan track, basketball courts, a tennis court, a gymnasium, a hall for table tennis as well as a housing facility for athletes.”
He mentioned that there are other major projects going on in the region as well. “We can talk about Komenda sugar factory and others,” he added.
Touching on President Mahama’s request to become indigene of the Central Region, the Oguamanhene explained that President Mahama in 2012 requested to be granted as a son in place of late President John Evans Atta Mills, who is an indigene of the region.
“We did what tradition demands to allow him to become a son of the region,” he added.
