NEW YEAR MESSAGE FOR 2015 - EHUNABOBRIM NANA PRAH AGYENSAIM VI
As we say goodbye to the year2014 and begin the journey of 2015, I want to wish everyone a Happy andProsperous new year.
2014 was a year of mixedexperiences, one that witnessed great challenges for our Nation Ghana, whichdirectly impacted the lives of many in the Owirenkyiman Kingdom. Indeed it hasbecome more obvious that the fortunes of citizens in hamlets, villages andsmall towns like ours is inextricably linked to that of the â€˜â€™so calledâ€™â€™ bigcities we read and hear about. It is no longer â€˜â€™THEMâ€™â€™ or â€˜â€™USâ€™â€™; for we rise togetheras a nation or wallow in individual abject poverty.
In December 2014, we had theoccasion to celebrate the inaugural Owirenkyiman Kantamanto annual festival whichalso coincided with the 30th anniversary of my ascension to thethrone. I was truly delighted by the enormous support from the Religious,Business and Political communities and more importantly the general populationof the Assin traditional area and beyond. The great success of the festival,which celebrated years of remarkable development in our Kingdom, is a testamentof what we can achieve with unity, selflessness and a good measure of hardwork.
We all bear witness to how far wehave come as a community, but I also say to you that if we are guided by thecore principles of unity, selflessness and hardwork, 2015 shall show theresults from our invigorating passion of turning Assin Kushea into a model townfor the entire nation. It is my hope that the next durbar will not only be acelebration of another year but highlight the remarkable And tangibleimprovements we would have made in education, healthcare provision and creationof employment opportunities for our kingdom. It is for this reason that I intendto re-inaugurate the Owirenkyiman Development Committee by the first Akwasidaeof 2015 to champion this cause.
I implore you all to join me thisyear to rededicate ourselves to the development of our beloved Kingdom and makea better future for our children.
God Bless you all.
