The occasion was also used to launch the Nana Adwoa Korantiwaa II Foundation which would give the less privileged the needed support in education and the well-being of the aged persons, widows, and widowers.

"My vision for the Foundation is to provide quality education for brilliant but needy children in Bompieso to enable them to realise their dream," he said.
