By Benjamin Akoto, GNA    

Gyampomani (E/R), June 28, GNA - The Chief of Gyampomani, Barima Boama Darko III, has appealed to sons and daughters of Gyampomani living outside the town to come back home and use their expertise to support the development of the town.

“The most worrying aspect is that Gyampomani has many prominent people scattered across the country, but they don’t remember their roots”, he said.

Barima Darko made the remarks at a home coming ceremony organised by the Chiefs and elders of the community in aid of a community market and a durbar ground.

The home coming also seeks to bring all citizens of the land to meet, share ideas and contribute towards the development of the community.

Gyampomani is a farming community near Osino. 

He said the traditional authority of the community had decided to organize the homecoming annually to generate funds and discuss issues on the development of the community. 

Barima Darko said the community has numerous challenges, including the lack of a community market, durbar grounds, a CHPS compound, Teachers quarters, bad roads as well as other basic social amenities that would go a long way to improve the living standards of the people.

Barima Darko advised the people to do away with backbiting and love one another.
