The Brong-Ahafo region has produced many prominent persons as far as the development of Ghana and the world is concerned.

But unfortunately and interestingly, most of us do not even know that such important personalities at one point in their life used the Brong-Ahafo region as a hub or spring board to attain the heights they attained in life.

These individuals by dint of hard work have been able to carve a niche for themselves in health, engineering, music, sports, politics, agriculture, construction, education and security.

In a new series at banewsgh.com, we will highlight the achievements of these sons and daughters of Brong-Ahafo many of whom are unsung heroes. We will celebrate and sing their praises because we believe in eulogising people whilst they are alive but not when they are dead and cannot hear us.

We share in the assertion that a nation (in this case Brong-Ahafo region) that does not honour it heroes is not worth dying for.

In today’s series, we shed light on one individual who for more than two decades held the destiny of this nation in his decisions and pronouncements during every election year.

The spotlight is thrown on academic, political scientist, electoral colossus and the immediate past Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan.
