Osahene Owusu Ntow IV, the Krontihene of the Anum traditional area, has apologised to former President John Mahama for campaigning against him in 2016, ahead of polls that year.
During a visit by Mahama to Anum, the chief further accused the governing New Patriotic Party of deception.
"I didn't know His Excellency Alhaji Dr Mahamoud Bawumia was more of a Conman than me. He deceived us into voting for him."
He highlighted the deteriorating condition of roads in Gyakiti, Agyena, Akwamufie, Anum-Boso, and other places, expressing disappointment in unfulfilled promises.
The chief also urged his subjects to reject the governments that neglect their development.
Finally, he assured Mahama of votes from his area if the National Democratic Congress conveyed a convincing message.
Mahama was in the area as part of his building Ghana tour in the Eastern Region.
Mahama heavily favoured for 2024 elections
The economic crisis under the NPP government has allowed Mahama and the NDC to gain more favour in the eyes of Ghanaians as the campaigns heat up.
Corruption scandals under the Akufo-Addo government have left people reminiscing positively about life under the Mahama administration pre-2017.
As things stand, most polls predict victory for Mahama in the 2024 elections.
