An elder of The Church of Pentecost, Nana Kwakye Dankwah II, has been enstooled as the chief of Kasei, near Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
His enstoolment ceremony which took place on January 7, 2023, was attended by the National Co-ordinator of the Chieftaincy Ministry of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, who doubles as Director of the Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM) and an Executive Council Member of the church; the Mampong Area Head, Apostle Samuel Kwabena Asare, and other ministers of the church.
In an address, the Chief of Ejura, Barima Osei Hwedie II, explained that it became necessary for a new chief to be enstooled for the people of Kasei due to the passage of the former chief, Nana Twumasi.
He commended Nana Kwakye Dankwah II for showing leadership skills and commitment to lead Kaseiman. He expressed his appreciation to The Church of Pentecost and the Chieftaincy Ministry for the encouragement and support given to the new chief.
In his welcome address, Elder Nana Kwakye Dankwah II thanked the Lord for His grace and mercy and the noble opportunity to serve the people of Kasei.
He further expressed his appreciation to the Ejurahene and the clergy for their immense support towards him.
He pledged his unrelenting support for the development and progress of Kasei, advocating for the provision of potable water which, according to him, is a major challenge for the people.
On his part, Apostle Anane Denteh called on the people and the royals in the palaces to be faithful, stating, “Every chief likes righteous, wise and skilled people.”
He explained that the Chieftaincy Ministry is a medium for the Church to partner with the palace for development in the communities.
According to him, the Church in collaboration with the Pentecost University has rolled out a course to support the chiefs who wanted to develop further skills to govern their people.
Gracing the occasion was the Queen mother of Kasie, Nana Akosua Akyiaa Oyiakwan, and some traditional leaders.
