Ga Mantse appeals to Mahama, IGP to stop ‘imposter’ king.
The Acting Ga Mantse Nii Tetteh Kwei II has appealed to President John Mahama and the Inspector General of Police to stop Nii Adama Laste from holding himself as Ga Mantse.
He says the latter’s continuous appearance in public proclaiming to be the Ga Manste could escalate Ga chieftaincy crisis.
According to him, some Ga youth are not enthused about Nii Adama Latse parading himself as the King and have vowed to use force to stop him.
He says President Mahama and the IGP must intervene immediately before the youth take the law into their own hands.
“I want to plead with the government especially with our President , John Mahama and the IGP that they should be able to arrest the situation before people take the law into their own hands”.
In an interview with Joy News’ Fred Smith, Nii Tetteh Kwei said Nii Adama Latse was seen parading himself around the Ga Mantse.
“He was also showcased by the Sakumono Wulomo as Ga chief but I want to tell the whole Ga state that George Adama Tackie who calls himself Latse is not the Ga Manste because the Ga paramount stool does not know him as such”, he said.
He said the unavailability of a Ga Manste does not give Nii Adama Latse the right to portray himself as one.
According to him Nii Adama Latse must refrain from the act and allow instructions given by the Regional House of Chiefs to be followed through.
Nii Tetteh Kwei says he fears that if the situation is not dealt with immediately, the security of the Ga state will be compromised.
