New palace for Kodie
by Sebastian R. Freiku
The Chief of Kodie, Nana Owusu Panin Ababio, is constructing a new palace for the town.
The project, estimated to cost about GH¢500,000 on completion, is being funded through his own resources as his personal contribution towards the development of the community.
The Chief told Ashanti File that the new palace is expected to be completed by the close of the year.
Nana Owusu Panin was enstooled chief of Kodie in April 1979, but abdicated the chieftainship in the name of peace, only to be re-installed in May 2007.
He has been instrumental in the creation of the new district, having initiated efforts at it as far back as 1982.
Nana Owusu Panin says he is committed to the development of the town, which now serves as the district capital.
He has already released 30 acres of land to the District Assembly for infrastructure for the 13 decentralised departments. Other projects being constructed include a three-storey administration block, assembly hall, a canteen and staff bungalows, all at Kodie.
Nana Owusu Panin has promised to release more plots of land for the construction of a Senior High School, a health centre and a nurses training school to open up the place.
He has appealed to the government to ensure the speedy development of the district.
