The Minister for Roads and Highways has been Enskinned by the Overlord of the Waala Traditional Area, Naa Fuseini Pelpuo IV.
This was disclosed to the Media by the Secretary to the Overlord, Jimpenhi Naa Kadri in a Statement.
The Hon. Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako-Attah, paid a courtesy call on His Majesty the Overlord, Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV at the palace this evening. The entourage was led to the palace by the indefatigable Regional Minister, Hon. Dr. Hafiz Bin Salih. He informed His Majesty that he would be in the region for a three day official visit to inspect ongoing works on some roads, particularly, those that were cut off by the floods last month. He added that the visit was important for him because, during the last visit, he had promised His Majesty of a return visit at a time when the affected portions of the roads would have been restored.
His Majesty the Wa Naa on his part, gave the Minister a warm welcome. He referred to him as one of the greatest friends of the Upper West Region, giving the commitment he showed towards the fixing of the roads under reference. As a show of appreciation to the Hon. Kwesi Amoako-Attah, the Wa Naa also enskinned him as a chief – Yiri Maalibu Naa, meaning, Chief of Community Development. He donated a cow to him as well. Everyone present expressed love for the encounter between His Majesty and the Hon. Minister.
