Private legal practitioner, Nana Obiri Boahen of ‘Nso Nyame Ye’ Chambers, has described the suspension of the Berekum Traditional Council from the activities of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs as ‘fear-mongering and ’empty noise’.
“This is fear-mongering, empty noise, and it must stop.”, Nana Obiri Boahen stated in an interview on Accra-based Peace FM, threatening to go to court to have the decision quashed.
The Dormaahene, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu who is the President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs made the declaration that “seven of us who are chiefs in this Bono Region, namely Drobohene, Nsokohene Dwinimhene, Wenchihene, Kwaatsomanhene, Sumaahene and myself Dormaahene and the people of Bono have resolved that from henceforth we have nothing to do with Berekum in terms of activities in this house until they find a way to tell us something reasonable,”
Reacting to this, Nana Obiri Boahen stated unequivocally that, the Dormaahene has no authority to make such a pronouncement.
According to him, the right thing for the chief to have done is a fair hearing before deciding.
