He stated that the Association sought to foster good working relationship with any ruling government adding that the Association is strictly non-partisan and will work with any political party in power.

Nii Lante Edward Lamptey further pleaded with the government to upgrade the road network in the area, especially Ashalaja to Ashifla, Kwaku Bamfo to Adawukwa, Obom to Kwesi Nyarko among others roads to aid the easy transportation of farm produce.

He therefore appealed to the government to fully address these needs tabled now and the next three years saying; the Association would be grateful to have their needs fully addressed.
The Obom Mankralo, Nii Addo I, stated that the Chiefs of the area are fully prepared to give out lands for the construction of senior high schools, hospitals, markets among others to create jobs for the teeming unemployed youth and to improve their lives.

He appealed to individuals and the government to establish an agro-processing factory or light industry to create a ready market for farm produce and to provide jobs for the people especially the youth.

The Member of Parliament for Domiabra-Obom Constituency, Sophia Karen Ackuaku, commended the Chiefs, Elders and the Queen mothers for the formation and the inauguration of the Association which according to her is a sign of unity.

She pledged her commitment to support the Constituency by improving road network and educational infrastructure.
