The Chiefs and people of Suma-Ahenkro in the Jaman North District of the Bono Region over the weekend enstooled the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin as the “Adasuokohene” of the Suma Traditional Area.
He was enstooled under the name Nana Adasuokohene (a god possessing strength to resist external powers) Alban Bagbin I.
His new chieftaincy title, according to Odeneho Dr Afram Brempong III, the Paramount Chief of the Suma Traditional Area, was to recognise and acknowledge his immeasurable contribution to the fight against LGBTQI in the country.
Odeneho Dr Brempong III took Mr Bagbin through the customary rites of the chiefs and people of the area to seal his enstoolment at a durbar to climax the 2023 Suma Royal Retreat at Suma-Ahenko.
During the weeklong retreat on the theme, “If the son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”, a theme picked from the Holy scriptures, Suma-Ahenko natives and royals, home and abroad returned home to strengthen family ties.
Odeneho Dr Brempong III congratulated Speaker Bagbin, saying the chieftaincy title was a reserve for only deserving and resilient individuals and politicians.
The Paramount Chief observed that the Speaker of Parliament had demonstrated to the people the “power to defend Ghana from the invasion of LBGTQI community despite the mist and threats from Western powers”.
Odeneho Prof Brempong III said he was optimistic that the Speaker of Parliament, and the House in general would remain resolute and not allow anything to sway or influence them to accept LGBTQI in order to preserve the nation’s culture and tradition.
On his part, Speaker Bagbin expressed gratitude to the chiefs and people of the town and pledged to continue with his stance against LGBTQI.
