Banka Gets New Queen Mother

The chief and queen mother of Banka

A female
lecturer of the Knutsford University College (KUC), Nana Amma Ampofoa Twumasi,
who is the newly-installed queen mother of Banka Traditional area in the
Asante-Akyim South District of the Ashanti Region, has been outdoored at a
ceremony in the community.

With the stool
name Nana Anima Basahyiadom-Framo, the Quality Assurance Director of
KUC  succeeded Nana Adwoa Agyekumwaa II, who died in September last
year and was buried on February 16, 2019 at the Banka Royal Cemetery.

She was
outdoored three days after swearing the oath of allegiance to the chief of
Banka, Osabarima Twiapoma III and Okyenhene, Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin.

The new queen
mother, who holds a Master of Philosophy in Political Science, used the
occasion to call for the education of both boys and girls.

According to
her, the immense focus on girl-child education has negatively affected the boys.

She indicated
that sexism is now protecting girls at the expense of boys.

Nana Anima reiterated
her commitment to diligently serve the people and support the Banka chief in
his quest to bring development to the area.

Chief of Banka, Osabarima Twiapoma, asked the people to show reverence to the new queen mother and appealed to the other chiefs and people of the area to support her.
