A new Okuapemhene is being enstooled in Akropong Akuapem in the Eastern Region amid tight security.
There is heavy presence of armed police from the Formed Police Unit (FPU), Military personnel, BNI and National Security operatives.
The swift enstoolment of Nana Kwadwo Kese, 34, as the new Okuapemhene follows nullification of the enstoolment of Odehye Kwasi Akufo by the Eastern Regional House of chiefs on Thursday.
The Abrewatia of Sakyeabea Royal Family and eighth of the eleven Kingmakers presented the Paramount Chief elect to the Asonahene, the Krontihene -Osahene Ofei Kwasi Agyemang and Baamuhene -Nana Kwame Asare Bampoe to perform the necessary traditional rites and slaughtering of sheep on the feet of Nana Kwadwo Kese signifying their endorsement.
He was then paraded three times to and fro north and south of Akropong Township as tradition demands.
The Paramount Chief Elect will swear to the Krontihene and all five divisional chiefs will also swear oath of allegiance to him before outdooring.
