Nana Adu Amankwapam I
On December 15, 1991 after the necessary rites had been performed by the elders, Tetebo was seated as the Tufohene with the royal name of Nana Adu Amankwapam I.
Born into the Asona royal family on January 5, 1949, Amankwapam received his General School Certificate in 1970. Between 1970 and 1973, he read for a degree in accounting and today is a fellow of the Institute of Administrative Accountants and a member of the Institute of Accounting Technicians.
Amankwapam's forcefulness and leadership qualities have made him the inspiration of young and old. It has been his vision that the unemployed be trained and aided to improve their standard of living; he set up training workshops for youth in handicraft production. This includes carving, making and collecting beads, weaving Adinkra cloth and crafting cane furniture, mainly for the export market. He aspires to open two more such workshops so that Ghana's rich handicraft tradition can be shown to the world.
