A Chinese businessman has denounced a chieftaincy title that was bestowed on him by the chiefs and people of Kwahu Abetifi.
Sun Qiang the owner of an ethanol factory in the area was enstooled as the Nkosuohene of Asenyanso with the stool name Barima Kofi Ayeboafo in the first week of September but he has rejected the title three weeks later.
According to his spokesperson, Baba Issah, his rejection follows the public outcry that greeted his enstoolment.
He revealed that his boss has taken notice of the concerns that have been expressed in relation to his title and has decided to denounce it.
Baba Issah however revealed that the rejection of the title will not in any way affect the good works Mr. Qiang undertakes for the people in the area.
“He is thankful to all of you for the opportunity. However, today, what he’s saying to Ghanaians and the world is that he is no more interested in the chieftaincy title. He came for development, and so he is dissociating himself from the title.
“The development of Afram Agya is a priority to him and so he still remains focused to the development of the area. He is, therefore, appealing to everyone who is interested in farming to come to the area and do so in order to create employment for the youth and people of the area”.
