The objective of the Adaek3se3 was to raise funds for the construction of a befitting Palace for Kuntanase Traditional Area.

Barima Ogyeabour Amankwaah Adunan II explained to his subjects why after three years he is celebrating his maiden Adaek3se3 attributing it largely to the Covid-19 pandemic which brought mass gatherings to a standstill in the last two years after they had lost two Chiefs in the area.

He commended the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, (NPP) for his massive support for the ongoing Kuntanase Palace project but was quick to add that a lot more of such support would be needed to complete the project.

The Kuntanasehene called on all indigenes of Kuntanase both home and abroad to return home and support his plans and programs to help build the Kuntanase Traditional Area to a befitting developmental status.

The Education Minister and MP for Bosomtwe, Hon Yaw Osei Adutwum after donating GHC22,000 of both cash and kind enumerated several projects being undertaken in the Bosomtwe District including plans to relocate the Kumasi Technical University to Kuntanase among others, and pledged the government’s continuous support.

On his part, the Ashanti Regional NPP Chairman after pledging to support Barimah Ogyeabour Amankwaah Adunan II in his developmental agenda donated 100,000 Cedis cash towards the Kuntanase Palace Project.
