Trouble Looms Over Krontihene Installation

There could be bloodbath at Sikaa in the Nkoranza Traditional Area of the Brong Ahafo Region if the security agencies do not remain vigilant.

Following the death of Nana Kwasi Kwei, the Krontihene of Nkoranza Traditional Area, Nana Akosua Bagyei II, the Krontihemaa nominated Nana Guakro Effah II for the post.

Before the kingmakers could make any decision, another person Nana Kofi Poku laid claim to the stool.

The queenmother referred the two candidates to the kingmakers in order to avoid any trouble.

When six kingmakers-Nana Yefrihene, Nana Sikaahene, Nana Adantaasehene, Nana Wirempemhene and Nana Sorohene met, five of them voted for Nana Guakro Effah II while only one voted for Nana Kofi Poku.

It was therefore presumed that Nana Guakro Effah had been nominated and accepted as Krontihene of Nkoranza Traditional Area.

As tradition demanded, the newly-nominated Krontihene was expected to present himself to the Adontenhene of Nkoranza Traditional Areas to be introduced to the Omanhene of Nkoranza Traditional Area, Nana Okatakyie Agyemang Kodon IV.

The kingmakers later heard that Nana Kofi Poku was scheming to introduce himself to the Nkoranza Omanhene as the newly-installed Krontihene of Nkoranza Traditional Area.

In order not to be taken by surprise, the kingmakers forwarded the matter to the Brong Ahafo House of Chiefs since they feared that Nana Kofi Poku could play tricks and introduce himself to the Nkoranza Omanhene.

When DAILY GUIDE visited Sikaa, the youth of Sikaa, who were agitated, threatened to cause trouble if the new Krontihene nominated by the queenmother and accepted by the kingmakers is rejected.

Speaking to DAILY GUIDE, Kwabena Nsiah, one of the incensed youth, said they would never allow anyone to decide who should be the Krontihene after the queenmother and kingmakers had taken their decision.
