Naaa Abaifah Karbo, the Paramount Chief of the Lawra traditional area, and his sub-chiefs, were on hand to welcome the President.
The festival is celebrated to express gratitude to the gods and the ancestors of the Lawra traditional area in appreciation of a bumper harvest.
The 2017 celebration of the Kobineh festival marks the 41st of its kind. People from all walks of life, including persons from the Ivory Coast, make their way to the festival.
