The chiefs and people of the Sefwi-Anhwiaso Traditional Area in the Western Region had celebrated their Annual ‘Alie’ Festival, with a call on mining companies operating in the area to support educational institutions there.

Nana Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi the second, the Omanhene, addressing the durbar, singled out for support the Queens High School, the only girls’ senior high school in the area.

He said education was of prime importance since it would help produce more professionals in the traditional area for the overall development of the nation.

Calling for unity and love among the citizenry, Nana Gyebi appealed to well-to-do natives of the area, both home and abroad, to establish scholarship schemes for children in the area, and also contribute generously to new and on-going development projects.
The Alie festival is celebrated between April and May every year, and serves as a home-coming for natives to contribute towards the development of the traditional area.

The festival is also celebrated by the Chokosi ethnic group who live along the Ghana-Togo border.
