The festival started on August 6, 2022 and is expected to end on Sunday, September 11.

The one-month festival seeks to highlight unity, reconciliation, stocktaking and development and is also a platform for the annual re-union with the ancestors and the re-affirmation of allegiance by all chiefs and their subjects in the Asogli State to the Agbogbome Stool.

Rejection of Mr Agyapong’s gift

There was a sitting in State at the Asogli State Palace Forecourt on Friday.

Mr Kennedy Agyapong was there in person in Ho on Friday to pay homage.

He sent along some gifts and the gift was rejected at the durbar ground.

Some sub chiefs, serving as intermediaries to receive the gift on behalf of Togbe Afede rejected it and asked him to take it away.

Their reason was that, Mr Agyapong has allegedly been speaking negatively and using unkind words on Togbe Afede.

A video depicting Mr Agyapong on the durbar grounds have some voices in the background shouting “away”.

The gift including cartons of bottled water, were packed back into a vehicle that brought them.

Contrary to other reports that suggests that Mr Agyapong was chased out, Graphic Online’s Volta Regional correspondent, Alberto Mario Noretti, who was at the durbar grounds reports that Mr Agyapong was not chased away.

It was only the gift that was rejected, he said.

A State Grand Durbar at the Jubilee Park in Ho has been scheduled for Saturday, September 10, 2022.
