Speaking at a durbar to conclude the Annual Akwambo festival in Brofoyedur, the Chief emphasized the importance of selecting candidates with proven track records and a genuine commitment to the welfare of the community.
Nana Esoun Abonyi Kwaata II highlighted the need for voters to choose candidates who prioritize socio-economic development and can address the challenges facing the Gomoa Central District. He urged citizens to look for candidates with a history of effective representation and the ability to lobby for developmental projects.
Expressing concern about the poor road network from Winneba-Junction to Gomoa Jukwa and other infrastructural deficiencies, the Chief appealed to the government to address these issues to enhance commercial activities in the Gomoa Central District.
Additionally, Nana Esoun Abonyi Kwaata II cautioned the youth against being manipulated by politicians to engage in violence before, during, and after the elections. He encouraged them to prioritize peace and contribute to the democratic process responsibly.

The presence of these candidates at the durbar showcased the intersection of traditional and political spheres in addressing community concerns and fostering development.
