Royal College for Chiefs on the cards

The Minister-designate for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Samuel Kofi Dzamesi, has disclosed that he will set up a Royal College for Chiefs during his term.

Addressing members of the Appointments Committee of Parliament, Mr. Dzamesi said the College will be a programme to educate Chiefs to enable them understand the laws of Ghana.

“I think that what we need to do is actually to educate some of the chiefs. So it is my intention that if I become a minister I will start what we call a royal college that will offer opportunities to the chiefs to understand some of the laws of this country,” he said.

Mr. Dzamesi also recommended a book which contains the Code of Ethics for chiefs, explaining that  it will guide the chiefs and traditional leaders to do the right thing at all times.

According to him, although the chiefs may be aware of the law, they may not know everything, hence the code of ethics will be a great deal of help to them.
