Commissioning of the Ashanti Regional Secretariat
Brief history about the acquisition of the building
The search for a befitting Regional Secretariat began as soon as the current Regional Officers were sworn into office in December, 2009.In the inaugural speech by the Regional Chairman Mr. Paul Stanley Essaw, among others he said that there was the need for NAGRAT-Ashanti to acquire its own bonifide property as an office.The search took us to places like Agric, TUC, Krofofrom, Afful Nkwanta etc, all in the Kumasi city, until one day when Mr. Francis Quainoo, a friend of NAGRAT hinted us that a building at Bompata was being sold.
The day of commissioning
After a state-of-the-art renovation, 20th July, 2012 was fixed for the commissioning of the new Regional Secretariat.
Rev. Fr. Dominic Andoh prayed to begin the programme around 11:00am. The Chairman for the occasion was Nana Kyei Baffour II, the Asemhene, who is also Otumfour’s Chief Farmer. Indeed Nana was dressed in his royal regalia, which added a royal touch to the programme.
