Tension is brewing in Nkoranza ahead of the announcement of capital town for the newly created Bono East Region.

The youth of the region are displeased with government for snubbing their petitions requesting that Nkoranza be made the capital of the Bono East Region.

The youth are putting pressure on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to ensure that promises made to them in relation to the selection of the capital prior to the referendum that birthed the Bono East Region are fulfilled.

“We’ve sent petitions to the President and Dan Botwe on our choice of capital for the Bono East but we don’t see Nkoranza on the list that has come out. We suspect fraud but we want Dan Botwe and the President to know that the capital is for Nkoranzaman,” spokesperson for the demonstrating youth stressed.
