The Odauhene, Daasebre Ofosu Kwabi Ayebeahwe, as part of efforts to protect nature and promote tourism in Akyem Etwereso has warned inhabitants especially the natives of Akyem Etwereso not to go fishing in the rivers in Akyem Etwereso.

The people of Odauman celebrates the Mpae gum Akwantutenten festival which tells the history of the town.

The chief in an address to the people during the festival stated that festivals brings development to every town so they will continue to celebrate their festivals every year to foster unity and development.

He said this year, due to circumstances beyond their control they decided to celebrate the festival moderately but next year they will celebrate it mega and in a grand style.

He warned the people not to go fishing in any of the rivers in the town.

According to him, anyone who violates the law will face the chiefs and afterwards they will hand the person to the police to face the law.

He said they are doing that to protect the river and also promote tourism in the town.

He also advised farmers not to farm in the buffer of the rivers.

Daasebre Ofosu Kwabi Ayebeahwe iterated that the Kwaneakwa Tourist Attraction Center’s canopy walk is very special because of its unique features.

He said there are three canopy walk ways in Ghana namely, the Kakum National Park canopy walk way, the Bunsu junction canopy walk way and the Kwaneakwa canopy walk way but by comparison the Kwaneakwa canopy walk way is very special because at the Kakum National Park canopy walk way, tourist sees only the forest and in Bonsu canopy walk way it’s mainly variety of trees that you see but on the Kwaneakwa canopy walk way tourist enjoy the forest, trees and above all large live catfish when you are on the canopy walk way which makes nature very beautiful hence its uniqueness.

The Distrct Chief Executive for Akyemansa District, Hon. Paul Asamoah, said very soon they will be completing the first face of the Kwaneakwa canopy walk way, and they will start with face two of the projects, which is a green eco park.

He was optimistic that, after its completion the park will attract more people to the facility and patrons of the park will always desire to return because of how unique the facility is.

Hon. Paul Asamoah added that, plans are in advanced to construct the road from Akyem Abenase junction to Paa Odum so that it will make traveling to the place very easy for tourists to access the facility whiles the road also serves the communities.

According to him plans are far ahead in those areas so he urged the people to always pray for him and the Member of Parliament, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah as well as the Chief of Akyem Otwereso, Daasebre Ofosu Kwabi Ayebeahwe so that they can continue to bring more projects to the area.

He commended the chief for always being there for the town.
