On the 18th October, 2022, a delegation of Nananom paid a courtesy call on the Ahafo Regional Minister, Hon. George Boakye at Regional Coordination Council (RCC), Goaso.

Mr. Sampson A. Kwarteng, Regional Coordinating Director, welcomed the delegation on behalf of the Regional Minister.
The delegation was represented by Nana Kwame Asamoah II, chairman of the Associated Chiefs. Roads were among the main issues they raised. “The contractor (Kofi Job) has left the bediako-kasapin site, and the Regional Minister should come to our aid in this matter,” he said.
He added that the Regional Minister should help them with the merger of the E-block community day Senior High School built by the government and the current day Senior High School built by the community as a college of education.
Furthermore, Nana Asamoah II requested that the Regional Minister assist them in establishing a police station to provide security for the people of Kasapin and its environs. He also requested that the Regional Minister pay a courtesy call on the people of Kasapin and its surrounding towns.
