Nii Ayitey Anumle Oyanka I, who doubles as the Acting Paramount Chief of Abola Piam in the Ga state, and Oblieman near Sapeiman in the Ga West Municipality has charged politicians to stay off their chieftaincy issues.
He accused the country’s politicians of those behind the chieftaincy problems in the Ga State and that is why there is no sign of peace returning to state anytime soon.
He alleged the politicians created and continuing with the problems in the Ga state anytime they took over power, and this chronic problem was mainly for their prime lands and properties.
He made this observation in an interview with Ghanaiandemocrat.com, where he was of the view that the Gas could have solved their own differences if the ‘pretentious’ politicians should allow them.
It is the duty of government to provide security for its people and not to help worsen the problems and pretend they are solving it with the intent to ‘loot’ the properties belonging to the Gas, Nii lamented.
Announcing this year’s Homowo celebration in his jurisdiction, Obliema near Sapeima and Opah in the Ga West Municipality, Nii Anumle Oyanka I, called on President Akufo-Addo to warn his ministers to also stop interfering in his installation of Queen mothers in his area.
Nii Oblie, who spoke in an angry tone, threatened to mention names of these ministers if they refuse to stay away from the activities with his Queen mothers which he did not invite them (ministers).
In a related development, he chastised the King makers of the Ga state who are interested in money to install the wrong persons as successor chief or Ga Mantse without the fear of God and respect to their ancestors to install the rightful person to ascend the throne.
“….this behaviour is coterminous to selling of our birthright to the wrong persons who come with little money they have to ascend on the throne”, opined Nii Anumle Oyanka I.
Obliema Mantse appealed to the residence, chiefs in other surrounding communities to join him to celebrate this year’s Homowo. Nii Oblie implored all to take advantage of this year’s Homowo celebration to forgive each other for the sake of peaceful co-existence and socialise.
