Nana Buabasa Adubofour Kwaw II, Chief of Atimatim, who doubles as the Gyaasehene of the Overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom, Otumfour Osei Tutu Ababio II, has commended the Atimatim District of The Church of Pentecost for their enormous contributions towards the development of the Atimatim community.
The Church received this special acknowledgement from Nana Buabasa Adubofour Kwaw II, during a durbar and sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of a wall around the cluster of schools in the community held on Friday, February 10, 2023, at Atimatim in the Afigya Kwabre South District of the Ashanti Region.
The Atimatim District, under the leadership of Pastor Manasseh Mintah, last year donated 100 bags of cement and a cash amount to support the wall building project to secure school lands from encroachment and prevent unlawful entry to ensure the safety of the pupils and staff.
At the durbar to express appreciation to all sponsors and seek further assistance, Nana Buabasa stated that education contributes to the development of people around the globe and it was his utmost priority to provide resources to facilitate better teaching and learning, hence the initiative.
He acknowledged the efforts of the Atimatim District of The Church of Pentecost for their holistic approach to issues in the community. The Chief mentioned that the role being played by the Church, especially in communal works and the transformation of lives through the Gospel is immense.
“I am thankful for the existence of the Church in the community,” he said.
