|Finally, the people of Asankragwa have in unison, given the Nana Anyani Buadoom III a befitting burial. Apparent tension between two separate clans had prevented the late chief from being given a state burial after his death.
The issue was of national interest as the Minister for Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs, Dr. Henry Seidu Daannaa, once addressed the Western Region House of Chiefs and advised them “to get rid of Chieftaincy disputes in the country”.
Until his final burial which cements his place in history as a properly installed chief, Hon. Daannaa made it known to the chiefs that “the Ministry is worried about reports reaching it about Nana Buadoom III of Asankragua in the Wassa Amenfi Traditional Area in the Western Region.”
During the mass of Christian burial for the late Nana Anyani Buadoom III who was known in his private life as Mr. John Seth Ntiako Snr., Rev. Mgr. Francis Yaw Tawiah noted that the late chief manifested the wonderful work of God to men. The Parish Priest at Apowa, a residential town in the Western region of Ghana continued that out of the 92 years Nana Anyani Buadoom III lived on earth, he used 62 years to serve his people.
“He was endowed with amazing stamina which enabled him to work assiduously with his elders to transform the town which was a village to a prosperous town”, he said.
The wonderful contributions of the late chief according to the priest were achieved through the contributions of men like “Papa Kofi Dwaa, Papa Totwene, Papa Akyerem, Papa Kojo Essah, Papa Kwabina Tawia, Papa Mesu Gyato, Nana Addai and Papa James Buah”.
The collaboration with the above noble men led to the establishment of a secondary school in the area, magistrate court, police station, hospital, nursing and Midwifery College among other institution at Asankragwa.
