The Chief Executive Officer of Noryaa Benevolent Foundation and the Development Chief of Sarpeiman, Nii Abbey Okanfrah I, has donated brand new Toyota Vitz vehicle worth GH₵ 34,000.00 to the Chief of Sarpeiman, Nii Sarpei Agbetekor III.
The vehicle, presented to the Chief at the recently held Homowo of the people of Sarpeiman, is expected to address the transportation challenges faced by the Chief in the area.
Presenting the vehicle, the Chief Executive Officer of Noryaa Benevolent Foundation and the Development Chief of Sarpeiman, Nii Abbey Okanfrah I, popularly known as Staff, noted that Chiefs are usually forced to use public transport when they need to travel to perform their traditional duties.
“This does not speak well of the Chiefs as well as Sarpeiman people so I expect the vehicle to be used by the Chief to avoid the struggle he go through as far as transportation is concerned,” he stated.
He therefore asked the Chief and his subjects to ensure that the vehicle is maintained.
“There is more to do to empower our Chiefs to perform their duties comfortably but we must also maintain the vehicle to serve its purpose for a very long time,” he added.
Receiving the vehicle on behalf of Nii Sarpei Agbetekor III, the Akwashong of Sarpeiman, Nii Odiasempa, expressed gratitude to Nii Abbey Okanfrah I, for the gesture and promised to continue to work with him to develop the area.
He also assured him that the vehicle will be put into good use and will maintain it very well.
