The Chief of Atronie in the Sunyani Municipality, Nana Amponsem Darko II, on behalf of the traditional authority assured the MCE of Nananom's support and prayer for God to grant her good health and wisdom to lead the Municipality for it to become an icon of development among other Municipalities in the country.

This follows the invitation extended to Justina Owusu Banahene who is also a native of Atronie by Nananom of Atronie to deliberate on developmental issues of the town.

Issues such as Education (Technical and Vocational), environment (Erosions) access roads, youth development, forest concession, water, the extension of electrification projects, accommodations for police officers at the town among matters were discussed.

Nana Aponsem Darko II, told MCE that Nananom play very important role in the local Governance, however, the MCE should engage Nananom for them to use their powers and influence they wield at the local level to help ensure the smooth running of the assembly and the development process of the Sunyani municipality.

Nana Atroniehene noted that the Traditional Authority will pray for her elevation to higher position if there should be any positional changes .

On her part, Madam Owusu Banahene called on Nananom to impress on their people to desist from making statements that can further divide the society.

The MCE thanked Atronie Traditional Authority for contributing their quota to the development of the area.

She again appealed to them to continue to support the Municipal Assembly in its developmental quest to improve on the living condition of its residents.

Justina Owusu Banahene told Nananom that government has put in place several interventions to support communities that undertake self-help projects to improve their living standards.

Hon. Owusu Banahene urged the chiefs and the people of Atronie to take stock of their achievements and build on them.

The MCE said that the Nana Akufo-Addo government is leaving no stone unturned in the development of rural communities, adding that the Sunyani Municipal Assembly is doing all it can to construct more classroom blocks and health facilities among others to ease education and health problems facing the rural communities within the municipality.
