James Oppong-Mensah was installed Nana Oppong-Mensah Abrampa by the Paramount Chief of the Manso-Nkwanta Traditional Area, Nana Bi-Kusi II.

He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, a United Kingdom-based Human Resource Management professional body with Royal Charter, and holds two second degrees.

At last Thursday’s event, Nana Abrampa swore the oath of allegiance to Nana Bi-Kusi at his palace at a ceremony attended by a huge crowd that included the Head of Local Government Service, Dr Nana Ato Arthur; retired judges, retired civil and public servants, persons in academia, chiefs, clergymen, and Muslim community elders.

Nana Bi-Kusi noted that the Sompahene Stool was occupied by someone who was concerned about the development of his area, used his influence to help the people, and was concerned about the vulnerable.

He noted that the contributions of Nana Abrampah in the traditional area and the larger Ashanti Region were enough to hand him the position so that he could offer his experience, expertise and influence to the people.

Nana Bi-Kusi appealed to other citizens to emulate the “exemplary personality” of Nana Sompahene.
