The state secretary of the traditional council, Daniel Marfo Ofori, addressed the media with respect to the matter.
According to him, the traditional council demands a clear, direct and unambiguous apology from the NDC.
This, he added, should be followed by a ritual pacification to appease the Okyenhene, kasapafmonline.com reports.
Failure to do this, he said, would lead to disciplinary sanctions against Kwame Zu. The action, per a report by kasapafmonline.com, would include a ban of the NDC from all official functions under the auspices of the Ofori Panin Stool.
It would also include a declaration that the NDC is not welcome in all the palaces of the over 940 towns, villages and settlements in Akyem Abuakwa.
In other news, YEN.com.gh has learned that a dance and wellness programme is being held at the University of Ghana, Legon, for the aged in Ghana.
Information available shows that the activity takes place at the dance department of the School of Performing Arts of the university.
The programme has been going on for about a year and a half now and it is deemed necessary as there appears to be no policy in place for old people in Ghana.
The motive is to ensure that the wellbeing of the aged in society are improved as aging comes with a myriad of health issues such as cardio challenges and decline in mobility.
It is also to ensure that old people do not stay at home and lose their lives as a result of loneliness.
