The Chief used the occasion to enquire on a letter earlier submitted by his forebear to reinstitute Akpini Royal Regalia in Germany Museum. A request was made in a letter by then Togbui Dagadu VIII to the former German Ambassador John Rudiger on the 12th of October, 2015. The enquiry seeks to find out the status of the request. He stated that it is now his core mandate to reunite the stool properties so as to promote peace and solidarity in the Akpini State as the occupant and leader of the people. H. E. Krull was tasked to assist in the process of returning every historic and cultural belongings in the Germany back to its people to ensure restorative justice.

The write-up on social media further stated that an appeal has been made by the Akpinifiaga for a befitting Akpini Historical Museum and Cultural Centre  in Kpando should be established to house the returned stool and its properties and also serve as a rallying ground for the cultural renaissance of Akpini culture, history and cordial relations with its neighbours home and away.

Kpando is blessed with amazing and beautiful landscapes. They have both high lands and lowlands and have one of best rain patterns in Ghana which make the town a fertile ground for agriculture products. They are also blessed with the Volta lake which can provide nice lake tourism. In line with this the Paramount Chief Akpinifiaga Okpekpewuokpe Dagadu IX called on German investors to seize the opportunity and invest in agro-processing, fishing industry, lake tourism, vocational/technical education and sporting activities in Kpando. You can relate the great Kpando Heart of Lions that shocked Ghana sports when they appeared in the Ghana Premier League to win trophies and humbled the big teams.

An assurance was given by H. E. Daniel Krull to work on the request and also visit Kpando to familiarize himself. He promised to support development in the Akpini Traditional Area to his best of abilities.

It is no doubt that the Akpini State is back and we wish them all the best.

Long Live Akpini!!!

Long Live Kpando!!!
