The Chiefs and Elders of Adenkribi in the Berekuso Traditional area of the Eastern Region last Saturday, December 13, 2014, with pomp and pageantry swore-in Madam Sophia Akuako as Nkosuohebia of Adenkrebi.
Madam Sophia Akuako, the Deputy Executive Director of National Service Scheme (NSS), will now be known as Nana Afia Amponsah Akuoko I.
The short but colourful ceremony, was graced by Nana Ankamah I, Nana Addo Kweku II, the Berekusu Odomase, Nana Afia Odebia, Queen Mother of Berekuso and Adenkribi, Abusuapanyin Addo Adjei, Abusuapanyin of Adenkribi.
Also present were, Nii Tackie Obli, Naa Ashorkor Ashong of Nungua Traditional Area, Abusuapanyin Nyarko of Odomase, members of the Odonaa Market Women Association and the Deputy Minister of Fisheries and Aqua Culture and Member of Parliament (MP) for Ledzokuku Constituency in the Greater Accra Region (GAR), Madam Sena Okiti Duah.
The interesting thing about Adenkeribi, is that it is an area under the Ga East Municipality, but administratively in the Eastern Regional Co-ordinating Council, and also falls under the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency of the GAR.
Speaking at the colourful gathering, Nana Afia Ampomah I, appealed to the people to assist her in developing the area.
The Herald, gathered that the Chiefs and elders took the decision to honour the Deputy Executive Director with chieftaincy title for her efforts in the infrastructural development of the area over the years.
