The Paramount Chief of Lawra – Upper West Region, has enstooled Kennedy Agyapong, the Member of Parliament (MP) of Assin Central as their Developmental Chief.
He was honored with this title during the launch of the Tideltaa Women’s Group in the Upper West Region. His enstoolment as the Developmental Chief was however under the stool name Naa Kennedy Dery Agyapong.
According to the Paramount Chief of Lawra, the honour was done him due to his remarkable contribution to the growth of mother Ghana.
The president of the Lawra traditional council said…
‘‘The Lawra traditional council has observed with admiration your remarkable philanthropic, charitable deeds to the people and communities across the country.
Since your visit to Lawra during the 2016 Kobine festival, your humble demeanor and love for my people was immediately noticed and commended by people who came into contact with you. As a result of your dedication to mother Ghana, your dedication to humanity, your demonstrated commitment to the development of Lawra we hereby confer the revered title, Tengnmaale Naa on the Assin North member of parliament, Kennedy Agyapong,’’
A three-piece smock, a hat and a walking stick was given to him to signify his enstoolment.
Kennedy Agyapong, now Naa Kennedy Dery Agyapong, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the chiefs for such recognition. He also said, it’s not all that gets the chance to be honored with such a position whilst alive.
‘‘It is not everybody that gets the opportunity to be honored in life whilst he lives; some are honored when they die. Some when they are dead is when people shower praises. I want to thank God for allowing me to see how Ghanaians appreciate my effort.
I know I have stepped on a lot of toes because I try as much as I can to speak the truth. In the course of that you hurt people’s feelings and I know they can’t forgive you,’’
Kennedy Agyapong told the people of the Lawra Constituency that, this honour done him will reinforce his desire to continue to serve this country with clean heart and with truth. He will continue playing more roles in ensuring the upliftment of this country.
The occasion was witnessed by Minister of Gender, Cynthia Morison, Social Protection, some Members of Parliament, First national Vice Chairperson of NPP, Rita Asobeyire and some stalwart of the NPP.
