The ceremony which took a form of a mini durbar brought together the Paramount Chief of the Traditional area and many illustrious sons and daughters of the Gomoaland. Giving the background to the project, Most Rev. Matthias K. Nketsiah said that the request for an institution was made by the Paramount Chief with his Council to Cardinal Peter Kojo Appiah Turkson and he had taken it up to make the Catholic Church go into partnership with the Traditional Council. He said the Archdiocese would support them with technical assistance and ensure that the project saw the light of day.
The Paramount Chief and the other speakers at the function commended the Catholic Church for her role in health and educational development in the country. Some dignitaries present at the durbar were Prof. Nyankson of UCC, Col Rtd Nyame , Very Rev. Fr. Isaac Ebo-Blay, Frs. James Essuon, Mark Kwenin and a host others.
