Sefwi Wiawso chief exposes wicked agenda against SHC

The Chief of Nzuozia who doubles as the Kyidomhene of Sefwi Wiawso in the Western North Region, has exposed the wicked agenda of the opposition National Democratic Congress against the State Housing Company.

Putin: Russia stands ready to offer security help to Belarus
