The programme was put together by Bombisco Productions – a multimedia company working in publishing, advertising and event organization, and each of the awards was presented with a citation.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu was hailed for his unique brand of leadership and enormous effort at helping to promote education through his Otumfuo Education Fund that has benefited in excess of 5,000 students.

Also of special mention was his Health Fund, which was providing financial and material support towards the reduction of maternal and infant mortality, glaucoma and other eye diseases.

Nana Adusei Atwenewa Ampem used the occasion to rally his colleague chiefs to focus on uniting the people for development.

He urged them to make sure the resources entrusted to their care were used for the general good of the community rather than personal comfort and convenience.

He asked them to avoid greed and selfishness, adding that, such traits could make the people feel betrayed.
