The people were angry and questioned why a foreign national would be given that privilege when indigenes of the land were disregarded.

They thus mounted pressure on the traditional authority to reconsider their decision and strip him of that title.

However, before the authority could even think of such a thing, Mr. Qiang says he is no longer interested.

According to a report sighted by on, Baba Issah condemned the negative reactions of the general public towards the enstoolment of Mr Qiang.

He added that Qiang came to do business in the village and not to be made a chief, therefore, he disassociates himself from the title.

Baba Issah stated, however, that the Chinese man remains committed to helping in developing the community.

He expressed thanks to the people for recognising the efforts of Mr. Qiang.

He trades in ethanol production in the area and called on interested cassava farmers to cultivate more cassava and supply his factory in order for him to meet the 700 jobs goal he set for the factory.
