Konkombas in the Oti Region have pledged to ensure that there is peace and order among the various ethnic groups in the infant region to foster development.
According to them, even though Konkombas are not the only ethnic group in the region, they are ever prepared to respond to calls at any time from the new administration to discharge duties peacefully for the needed development.
Ubor Konja Tassaan VI, Paramount Chief of Kpassa who led a delegation of chiefs to meet Nana Owusu Yeboah, the Oti Regional Minister at his resident said, Konkombas in the region were not troublemakers as had been perceived by many but rather hard working people and pledged their support for the Akufo-Addo led administration to ensure the place was developed.
Ubor Tassan appealed to the Konkomba settlers not to take the laws into their own hands any time they encounter problems with other ethnic groups but follow the right channels in resolving the issue.
Queen mother, Krachi Nchumuru, Akos Nandi appealed to parents not to send their children into early marriages but rather support them with their basic needs to enable them attend school to eliminate poverty among the people.
The Oti Regional Minister, Nana Owusu Yeboah thanked Ubor Konja and his retinue of chiefs for the gesture and promised to work hard to bringing total development to the region.
Nana Yeboah asked for blessings, commitment and support from the chiefs and elders of Oti for government’s policies to enhance socio-economic development.
