Omanhene of Techiman

Nana Akumfi Ameyaw IV

Nana Akumfi Ameyaw IV is a lawyer, agriculturalist, teacher and a traditional ruler of one of the oldest Akan states in the country – Techiman Traditional Area. He is the 40th occupant of the Bonokyempem Duaduakwa Stool of Techiman.

Oseadeayo Ameyaw had his secondary education at the Sunyani Senior High School and Adisadel College before proceeding to the University of Cape Coast where he obtained his bachelor’s degree. He then entered the field of banking where he impressed with his professionalism and diligence on the job. He held several positions in the field, including serving as Chief Manager of the state-owned Ghana Commercial Bank Limited.

While working as manager at the Twifo Praso branch of Ghana Commercial Bank, Osabarima Dotobibi Takyia-Ameyaw, Omanhene of the Techiman Traditional area passed on to eternity and the search began for his successor. Kwaku Osei Mensah, as he was then known, was among those eligible for the position and impressed the kingmakers as having the right mix of professionalism, vision, competence and knowledge and respect for traditions to perform the role of a modern monarch.

Nana Ameyaw accepted the challenge and in May 2004, was duly enstooled as the Omanhene of Techiman, from which position he has sought to influence the course of his people through relentless advocacy and the execution of some social infrastructure projects.
