The Omanhene of Ejisu, Oguakro Afrane Okesse IV, and the Nkosuohene of Ejisu, Nana Kofi Poku I, have jointly re-launched an appeal for funds towards the rehabilitation of the Nana Yaa Asantewaa Museum Project at Ejisu in the Ashanti Region.
The Museum, built in 2000 on 14.81 acres of land, was burnt in 2004, but the Nkosuohene of Ejisu, on his enstoolment in 2015, initiated its rehabilitation.
The project, estimated to cost US$10 million, aimed at preserving the cultural values and history of the people of Ejisu, is also intended to boost tourism and create employment for about 3,000 people.
The Nkosuohene has so far committed GH¢300,000 into the rehabilitation of the 10-room project, which includes a police post.
Nana Kofi Poku urged all Ghanaians, home and abroad, philanthropists, corporate organsations and individuals to support the project to mark the 100 years celebration of Nana Yaa Asantewaa in August 2021.
According to Mr. Sampene, Curator of the Nana Yaa Asantewaa Museum, donations towards the project could be channeled through the project account of the local branch of the Agricultural Development Bank (adb), Account No. 6081000113140201; Tigo Cash Account No. 0277808090, and MTN Mo Mo Account 0549477774 (Nana Kofi Opoku).
