The Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah has warned in the strongest terms yet, that Authorities in the region will not condone and entertain any acts of lawlessness, no matter who is involved.

The angry political head of the region and chairman of the regional security council who sounded pained while giving an account of some acts of violence allegedly perpetrated by some youth and supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) during the funeral of the gonja chief in Kumasi said such acts retards and impedes the development of the region.

He particularly took a swipe at former president John Dramani Mahama and heaped the blame on him for not calling his party supporters to order even though he was present at the event.

Mr. Osei Mensah also blamed the NDC for turning the funeral of the revered late traditional ruler into a political affair by asking NDC supporters to don party T-shirts and paraphernalia to the funeral.

‘’We will not entertain such behavior ever again. Not in the Ashanti Region. We need peace for development in this region. We want accelerated development and the president has promised us that. We want a peaceful atmosphere to contain this development and so they can take such attitude to other regions but not in the Ashanti Region’’ he said.
