The Chief of Kwapra in the Suame Municipality of the Ashanti Region, Baafuor Adu Gyamfi Kumanin, has expressed his appreciation to his people for supporting him as he marks 47 years on the stool.
He said his plans and vision would have been in vain had it not been the full cooperation and support of his people, especially the subchiefs.
In an interview, Kwaprahene told this paper that the secret behind his success over the years is that his doors are widely opened to everyone regardless of tribal, political and regional differences.
According to him, he and his subchiefs uphold honesty, transparency and fairness, and when cases are brought before them, they apply these virtues.
On his achievements for being on the stool for 47 years, Kwaprahene revealed that he had done a proper layout for the town which had beautified the area.
Besides, he lobbied for the improvement of road networks during ex-President Mahama’s regime in which the road from Kronum – Kwapra Wisdom was asphalted.

The drainage system for that portion of the road had already been constructed during the tenure of former President Kufuor.
According to him, a clinic has been constructed by the Ghana National Petroleum Company under the Akufo-Addo administration which the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, who also doubles as the Member of Parliament for the area, played an instrumental role before the commencement of the project.
Baafuor Adu Gyamfi Kumanin announced that he had also released land for the construction of Kronum Police Station; a portion of the land falls under him.
Kwaprahene urged his people to continue to support him, so that he could do more for them. He also appealed to the government to come to their aid by asphalting Kwapra roads, since they have developed potholes, making life uncomfortable for them.
