The King of Ashanti, His Royal Majesty, Otumfour Osei Tutu II, attended the Awuah-Darko family at their private residence in Juaben, Ashanti, for the 50th anniversary of Nana Otuo Siriboe II, the Paramount Chief of the Juaben traditional territory.
The King and his entourage, dressed in traditional Kente garb, exchanged warm greetings with the family before proceeding to the durbar grounds for the traditional celebration on Saturday, December 4.
Nana Awuah-Darko Ampem II, the Nkosuohene of the Juaben stool, who received the King, said the Awuah-Darko family considered it an honor to host him in their house.
The family took advantage of the opportunity to rekindle their long-standing friendship with the King and express gratitude for his honor.
The Asantehene created the first provision for the enstoolment of a Nkosuohene (progress chief) in Asante in 1985. Nana Otuo Siriboe chose Nana Awuah Darko Ampem to be the Nkosuohene of Asante Juaben, following the precedent of his overlord, the Asantehene.
He served as Chairman of the Juaben Rural Bank until his death on November 25, 2005, at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra, as a progress chief.
