The Teshie Traditional Council has appealed to the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs (GARHC) to release a report by a committee tasked to investigate and find lasting solution to the Teshie chieftaincy situation.
GhanaNewsOnline.com.gh has established that in 2016, Seidu Danaa, the Former Minister for Chieftaincy Affairs under former President John Mahama set up a committee chaired by Osu Mantse and President of GARHC, Nii Nortey Okwei Kinkan Dowuona VI to find a sustainable solution to Teshie chieftaincy menace.
The committee, this news portal has gathered, finished its work and produced a final report in 2018 which spelt out clearly who should be a Chief, Mankralo and Shikitele of Teshie.
Nii Nortey Tuaka II, The Spokesperson for Teshie Traditional Council alleged that a letter written by Osu Mantse led to the withdrawal of aspect of the report that concerns the installation of Mankralo. This step taken by the President of GARHC according to the Spokesperson for Teshie Traditional Council did not allow for the installation of the person that was recommended in the report as chief of Teshie.
He said “we want the final report which was finished in November 2018 and copies went out into the public domain. It is unfortunate that as we speak today, the Osu Mantse, who happens to be the President of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs has refused to officially release the report to the people of Teshie.
Information at our disposal indicates that the GARH C wants pages that contain the names of recommended candidates removed and to be replaced with names nobody knows where he got them from.”
The Spokesperson for Teshie Traditional Council said some of the chiefs who sat on the matter did not agree that changes be made to the report. The argument to make changes or not in the final report, Nii Nortey Tuaka II, stated become a debate among all members of the GARHC.
This issue, he said, was then put to vote when the GARHC met on 13th December, 2018. The result of the vote according him was that eight people voted that report should not be changed while two voted for the report to be changed.
The Spokesperson for Teshie Traditional Council said “After all these, the Osu Mantse has not found the wisdom to release the report. Our informants, the Mankralo of Prampram, the late Nene Benda release the result of the voting to us immediately by text message.”
Nii Nortey Tuaka II has there appealed to President Akufo-Addo to intervene in the matter and order the Osu Mantse to release the report to the people of Teshie without delay.
