Factions Of Ga Chieftaincy Dispute Warned Against Installing Chiefs Anyhow

The Greater Accra Regional Security Council (REGSEC) says it will crack the whip on anyone who tries to take advantage of the Ga chieftaincy crisis to foment dissension.

REGSEC Chairman and Greater Accra regional minister Ishmael Ashitey said the Council and Regional Police Command are on an alert to apply the law in the event of violence.

Speaking to Gifty Andoh Appiah on Joy FM’s Top Story Friday, the Regional Minister called on the three claimants to the Ga stool to desist from creating confusion.

“We will take decisions to prevent violence in Accra [and] we won’t allow anybody to take the laws into their own hands,” he said.

Two other claimants to the stool have resurfaced leading to some reported violence on Wednesday during a press conference wen one the factions resorted to throwing objects.

The crisis dates back to 2006 when Chief Warrior of Ga Mashie, Nii Owula Kpakpa Blofonyo known traditionally as the Akwashong Mantse challenged the occupant of the stool.

The Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs had scheduled to deliver its ruling on the matter in 2011, but this was not done.

A claimant to the stool, Boni Nii Tackie Adama Latse II has accused the Regional Minister and REGSEC of foisting Dr Tackie on them.

Yaote Otoga II who spoke on behalf of Adama Latse II said they will resist every attempt to install another person.

But Mr Ashitey has dismissed the claim, saying his job is to ensure there is peace in the Region and not to install chiefs.

“I don’t have friends among them,” he said adding he has initiated talks with the factions to find a lasting solution to the problem.

Mr Ashitey registered his dissatisfaction with the spate at which new Ga Mantse is installed in the Region.

“What is happening where every day, every month there is a new Ga Mantse is not the best,” he said.
