Omanhen of Edina Traditional Area, Nana Kwodwo Konduah VI presenting his address at the just ended Bakatue Festival

The Omanhen of Edina Traditional Area, Nana Kwodwo Konduah VI says the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts will soon hear from him following its failure to ensure that royalties from the running of tourist sites within his traditional area are paid the traditional council.

The audibly disappointed chief in an interaction with ATL FM’s Ibrahim Adam said he feels bitter with the manner in which the ministry treated his council especially during the just ended Bakatue celebration of the people of Edina.

Nana Konduah said previous engagements with the ministry had concluded that royalties due Nananom would be paid but unfortunately that has only been partly fulfilled.

New Kotokuraba Market

The Presiding Member for the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly [CCMA], Joel Eshun has warned that stalls at the Kotokuraba market, if not properly allocated, could suffer the fate of public toilets in the country where a change in government means a change in managers.

According to him, the assembly needs to tread cautiously to avoid a situation where occupants of the new facility would be branded supporters of a particular political party and as such suffer eviction if a new government is voted into power.

In an interaction on ATL FM’s Weekend Show, “Biribi Soronko”, Mr. Eshun said contrary to rumours suggesting that purported supporters of a particular political party are being favoured in the allocation of stalls, the assembly is not involved in any political distribution of shops.
