The assorted food items included over 60 maxi bags of maize, bags of palmnut, gallons of palm oil, over 60 cartons of red fish and the symbolic fish used for preparing Homowo ritual food traditionally known as Tsile.

The items were distributed to over 30 royal houses in Osu and Adabraka including both the Osu New Road and Old Road Royal Gates and the Adabraka Atukpai Stool.

While presenting the items, Dr Zanetor underscored the importance of preserving our cultural heritage.
