Oboa-Aman Bofotia Boa- Amponsem II, the alleged suspended Krontihene of Sunyani Traditional Area has stated he “is and remains the Krontihene of Sunyani”.
“Sunyani Krontihene is called Oboa-Aman Bofotia Boa-Amponsem II”, he emphasized, adding that, “I’m not dead, not overthrown and I have not stopped”.
Oboa-Aman Bofotia Boa- Amponsem II was speaking at his Palace on Sunday in Sunyani during a meeting with the Krontre/ Toasuam Royal family to commemorate 16 years of his enstoolment as Krontihene.

suspension dos not mean dismissal, “i
f someone is dismissed, the person is entirely sacked, but “a suspended member of a team or council is still a member of that group”.

“I chose and appreciate the word silent is golden, that’s why I have not spoken about it all this while”.
