Nii Ayitey Anumle Oyanka I, who also doubles as the Acting Paramount Chief of Abola Piam in the Ga State, and Oblieman near Sapeiman in the Ga West Municipality of the Greater Accra Region, has warned politicians to stay off their chieftaincy issues.
He accused the country’s politicians of being behind the numerous chieftaincy problems in the Ga State and that which is why there are no signs of peace returning to the state.
He alleged that politicians have created and continue to create problems in the Ga state with chronic problems mostly about prime lands and property issues.
He made this observation in an interview with Ghananewsonline.com.gh, where he expressed the view that the Gas could have solved their own problems if the ‘pretentious’ politicians had allowed them.
He said It is the duty of government to provide security for its people but not to worsen the problems while pretending to be solving it. He said their real intent is to ‘loot’ properties belonging to the Gas.
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 stop interfering in the installation of a Queen mother in his area.
A visibly angry Nii Oblie, threatened to mention names of these ministers if they refuse to stay away from all 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 the little money they have to ascend the throne,” opined Nii Anumle Oyanka I.
The Obliema Mantse appealed to the residents, 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.
