Oboa-Aman Boa-Amponsem II to take STC to Court
Sunyani, March 05, 2023
Oboa-Aman Bofotia Boa-Amponsem II, the Sunyani Krontihene (on suspension) has threatened Court actions against the Sunyani Traditional Council (STC).
According to him, he remains the substantive Kontirehene of Sunyani, therefore the STC’s request, acceptance and introduction of a different person from the same Krontire family to represent them (Krontire family) at the Council was illegal and unculturally unacceptable.
The STC at it sitting on Friday, March 03, 2023 accepted one Mr. Boye Boahen, from the Krontire family in Sunyani as a massenger and representative of the Kontire family at the Council.
Addressing a news conference at his palace in response to that, Oboa-Aman Boa-Amponsem II expressed unhappiness about the situation and stated “what the STC has done is against the Sunyani stool and illegal”.
“What they have done implies they have distooled me and enstooled a new Krontihene, and I would take this matter up”.
Oboa-Aman Boa-Amponsem II said “I was unlawfully suspended by the STC including all my subjects (the entire Krontire family), therefore under no circumstances should one from the same family be secretly called as Krontire representative without the concern of the substantive Kontirehene”.
He emphasized “I have not offended anybody, therefore I would persue this case with the laws of Ghana and go back to the STC”.
“I would tell Sunyani history to the whole World and would never discard the history of Kontire, my heritage” Oboa-Aman Boa-Amponsem II added.
