In 1925, when Ghana was called the British Gold Coast Colony, provincial councils of chiefs were established in all three territories of the colony, partly to give the chiefs a colony-wide function. The 1927 Native Administration Ordinance clarified and regulated the powers and areas of jurisdiction of chiefs and councils. In 1935 the Native Authorities Ordinance combined the central colonial government and the local authorities into a single governing system. New native authorities, appointed by the governor, were given wide powers of local government under the supervision of the central government's provincial commissioners.

The stool land (kingdom) of Sefwi Obeng-Mim, under the Sefwi Wiawso Traditional Area and Paramount King, was constituted in 1935 under the first chief/king, Nana Kwame Obeng I. His Majesty, Obeng I, with his chief priest, ushered in reforms to the constitution and the ceremonial regalia (cloths, ornaments, and decorations). Even though the size of the kingdom seems small in comparison to other stool lands, it’s people and leaders have been a powerhouse in the development of not only their region but also the whole Traditional Area and post-colonial Ghana.

The Royal Obeng family has ruled the Stool Lands for many years and the people were small scale farmers who did not take education seriously.

On this day 3rd of June, 2016 When the Obeng family assign me to the Royal Task to ascend to the status of Chief of Obeng-Mim Stools Land. It has not been easy task though, but the Lord Who raised me to this status continue to protect and guide me through his own wisdom. Having gone through a lot of disruptions from my enemies who still doesn’t understand the doings of God, I say that “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Enemies, you can fight me but with the Lord Jesus on my side, you will trample and full!! Because the Lord will fight for me and you will loose!!! Friends and family help me thank the Lord for his wonderful works. Has it not been the Lord on my side….

I am grateful to God and am not worried nor shake because am fortified in the lord.
