‘’We wish to congratulate the Divisional Chief, chiefs, elders and all the people of Apinto for their hard work in promoting peace and development. We wish you all a very happy and memorable anniversary’’ he said.

Mr. Amoh explained the chiefs and leaders are the custodians of the community and wield a great deal of influence on the people and have the capacity to help change the situation of the area for the better saying ‘’Since you are the custodians of the community, you help in the transmission of knowledge, norms and values of a given people, therefore, can serve as a good medium to change negative mindsets about wealth and job creation’’.
