The solemnity that marked the procession and public presentation of the newly enthroned fon of Saah was magnificent. The palace esplanade was jammed to capacity when the "nwarong" announced its appearance. Not even the sound of the bird could be heard, as a lineup of Sheys and Tantohs emerged from the inner palace. Only the gong and members of the nwarong secret society could speak. Third on the line was the Yee-nwarong, and after the Yee-nwarong was the newly enthroned fon. The second on the line raised his voice and said " here is your fon, your ruler". He asked in a high tone " is he your ruler?" And told the people of Saah to response, adding that the nwarong has given them the authorization to response. He asked again. "The man you are seeing here, is he your from"? And the population responded, yes! He continued that the nwarong has said that when there is vacancy in the palace, it is the right of the royal family to aspire, but once one is enthroned, everyone should back paddle. And that the nwarong has said that anyone that dares to look under throne will heat a stone. The nwarong also announced that everyone who has not been able to have a child, will leave the palace blessed with twins. And the nwarong also warned the youth to shy away from thievery and other societal ills.
It took close to 3hours from the Yee-nwarong to move round the palace esplanade. The messages were numerous and before slaughtering the goat at the entrance of the palace, the nwarong warned that it the sacrifice was an oath between the people and them anyone who dares will have his/her self to blame.
Addressing the population few minutes after the solemn outing, HRH Fon Divine Nformi Nfor asked his people to come closer to him. He said if he wronged anyone, he should be forgive and that he has equally forgiven anyone who wronged him knowingly or unknowingly. He extended a hand to the youths of Saah, asking them to join him so that they can develop their village.
