The Paramount Chief of Kpone is reported to have walked out on President Nana Akufo-Addo during a sod-cutting for the construction of a district hospital in the area.
According to reports, Nii Tetteh Otu II was furious when he saw the artist’s impression of the project which he taught was a one-storey building.
A video sighted by Adomonline.com has the angry chief walking out of the durbar grounds after he had poured his heart out to President Akufo-Addo.
Not even the plea by his council of elders could get him back to the durbar grounds.
A resident, Emmanuel Nortey, who was at the event, said the chief complained bitterly about how politicians have, over the years, deceived them over such projects.
“The chief walked out on President Akufo-Addo after he noticed the project wasn’t the one-story building he was expecting,” Nortey said.
Mr Nortey added that the angry Kpone chief even rejected an invitation by President Akufo-Addo for a closed-door meeting over the issue.
