Ghana needs salvation and a redeemer – Brong Ahafo Chief

The Omanhene of Dwenim in the Jaman South constituency, Bofo Bene IV, says the lawlessness and the total disregard for the rule of law, coupled with the economic hardships prevailing in the country, under the leadership of President Mahama, are a recipe for chaos.

According to Bofo Bene IV, Ghana currently finds herself in a situation akin to the era of military dictatorship.

“We know the challenges we are going through in this country. We are in a system, akin to that of a military government, where one does not know if he will wake up in the morning or not. We are going through the stages again,” he stated.

The Omanhene of Dwenim noted that “today, the rule of law does not work in Ghana. If someone can steal one chicken and be imprisoned for 6 years, why is someone who has boldly declared that he kills human beings on a daily basis still walking free?”, a reference to comments made by the brother of Hon. Collins Dauda, Minister for Local Government and MP for Asutifi South.

He continued, “We need salvation, we need a redeemer, we need someone who will ensure that the rule of law works. Our prayer is that God will elect for us a compassionate leader, a leader who thinks about the people, and one who thinks about the fate of our children”.

Bofo Bene IV made this known on Saturday, November 12, 2016, when the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, paid a courtesy call on him at his palace on the 3rd day of his tour of the Brong Ahafo Region.

The Dwenimanhene assured the NPP flagbearer that nothing will deter him from speaking the truth, adding that “I will continue to speak the truth and the truth will set me free, so that one day people will know that we were saying it in the interest of Ghana.”
