A group calling itself the Indigenous Concerned Youth of Ejisu – Akyawkrom in the Ejisu – Juabeng municipality in the Ashanti region are calling for the head of their chief Nana Osei Tutu Anpem II.
The irate youth are concerned their future hangs in a balance as the chief and his traditional authorities have shown very little concern to the development of the Ejisu traditional area.
They made their concerns known when they put together a petition to the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II after staging a demonstration dubbed ”We want equity.”
They insisted that Nana Osei Tutu Anpem II didn’t merit his stool since he had not made any meaningful contribution to developmental projects in the community twenty years after his enstoolment.
They complained that the chief had made millions out of selling lands including cemetery lands in the community only to fund his “selfish and personal” ambitions.
They also expressed concern about the deplorable state of their roads, a dilapidated six unit classroom block and a community centre in Ejisu which they feel the chief has accumulated more than enough to fix if he was committed to developing his town.
