Dormaahene supports Bono Twi documentation project

The President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs and Paramount Chief of Dormaa Traditional Area, Osagyefo Oseadeayo Agyemang Badu II, has given the assurance that he would support the documentation of the Bono Twi project.

He gave the assurance when the management and board members of the Bono Twi Documentation Project visited the House to update them on progress so far, and to solicit the support and blessings of the traditional authorities.

Oseadeayo Agyemang Badu II said documenting the Bono Twi would be of great academic, cultural and economic benefit to, not only Bono people, but Ghana in general, hence, worth supporting.

Mr. Kwaku Ansu Gyeabour, Founder, Coordinator and Organiser, said the project was to ensure that Bono Twi was documented and well recognised as one of the Akan languages to be taught in schools.

According to him, this would facilitate socio-cultural development and improve moral uprightness amongst children in the Bono Region.

The Dormaahene gave the assurance of office space at the Bono Regional House of Chiefs premise to support the promotion of the Bono dialect, and also pledged other needed support for the project and encouraged the team to speed up activities to make the dream a reality.

The Adontenhemaa of Aboabo No 4 of the Dormaa Traditional Area and Treasure of the project, Nana Akosua Kumi Sasraku Sradaa, thanked the House for the reception and gesture to help make the Bono Twi a national priority.

She said the move would evolve the dialect, which she termed, as the “first Akan language.”
