He expressed outrage about the failure of the government to inaugurate the assembly due to the court action during his address of the first State Council meeting of the year at Kyebi.

According to him, the plaintiffs--Adjei Boateng and Addo Sarpong-- have disrespected his authority and  the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council by not bringing the matter to him first before proceeding to court.

Speaking in Twi, he said: “How dare you put an injunction on a government policy to make Akyem Kukurantumi the capital of Abuakwa North Municipal Assembly without petitioning the chiefs of the land? This action is a gross disrespect to the traditional council."

He warned the plaintiffs that they will be dealt with for disgracing the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council.
