But speaking at a durbar of chiefs and people during a visit by President Akufo-Addo Monday, Nana Adjei said the people of Denkyira-Boasi have regretted their actions and hence must be given another chance.

“We have just ended our 3-day fasting and prayer session, where we asked God for forgiveness and so we believe the Lord has forgiven us. And we also want to ask Ghanaians to forgive us for everything. The people have regretted their actions and require another opportunity.

“I have met with my council and we have agreed to go back to our old name which is New Obuasi so henceforth we want the town to be called New Oboasi and not Denkyira Obuasi,” he said.
