Following the Western North Regional Minister's controversial and unprofessional letter to the Local Government and Rural Development Minister dated June 11, 2019 which attacked the integrity and character of the Overlord of Sefwi Wiawso Traditional Council, Katakyie Kwasi Bumangama II, the Traditional Council had performed the necessary customary rights on Thursday, June 20, 2019 to pacify the gods for such an abominable and unethical conduct not to repeat itself again in the newly created region.

Pouring of libation and slaughtering of male sheep means a lot including cleansing the dent the insult had brought to the stool and affirmation of the Traditional Council's resolution that they can no more stay with Hon. Kingsley Aboagye-Gyedu as the Western North Regional Minister in the capital, Sefwi Wiawso.

The Traditional Council's spoke person Nana Elluo Payin III of Nsuosua who is also the Kyidomhene of Sefwi Wiawso Traditional Council added that the appointing authorities should choose between the Traditional Council and The Regional Minister.

"We have no doubt that the President will adhere to our plea but in an unlikely event that the President insists on maintaining Kingsley Aboagye-Gyedu as the Western North Regional Minister then we will advise ourselves" Nana Elluo III stressed.

In an angry mood Nana Elluo III narrated that Sefwi Wiawso Traditional Council has six good constituencies under it and therefore the Overlord, Katakyie Kwasi Bumangama II should not be treated with impunity and disrespect.

Nana Elluo III further stated that they could not entrust the security of Katakyie in the hands of Kingsley Aboagye-Gyedu being the head of regional Security Council. He emphasized that the Traditional Council had been seriously disturbed because they do not know the real motive behind the conduct of the Regional Minister.

"To concoct and fabricate such a needless story that bothers on Katakyie's integrity, image and character cannot be mere accidental to be treated lightly" Nana Elluo III added.

In his conclusion, Nana Elluo III stated categorically that Kingsley Aboagye-Gyedu is not the only son on the land that could hold the regional ministerial position and therefore as a matter of urgency the President should replace him with another person that has respect for all the Traditional Authorities in the region and ready to fight for the development of the region.
