The National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama, was appointed last Friday as the Development chief of the Penyi traditional area in the Ketu North Municipality.
Mr Mahama was rightly enstooled and outdoored with the title ‘Togbi Dunenyo I, the Nugoryifia of the Penyi Traditional Area’ at a colourful durbar of chiefs and people of Penyi.
Mr Mahama who was the special guest of honour at the just-ended Penyi Nugoryiza was received into the community with a mammoth crowd amidst drumming and dancing.
The paramount chief of Penyi, Togbiga Dadzi V was full of praise for Mr Mahama for honoring their invitation. He used the opportunity to thank the NDC for various development projects in his area and asked for more when the NDC returned to power.
Penyi Nugoryiza is an annual festival of the chiefs and people of Penyi, one of the four traditional areas in the Ketu North Municipality of the Volta Region.
