The acting Adonte-hene of the Ga State, Nii Okaidja III who is also the Gbese Mantse has described as disgraceful the reported enstoolment of a new Ga Mantse under the stool name Nii Tackie Adama Latse II.
The enstoolment which took place on Sunday June 12, was led by the embattled Gbese mantse, Nii Ayibonte II with the support of some king markers in the Ga state.
George Tackie who is a London based business man hails from one of the Royal Houses within the Ga state.
Gbese Mantse Nii Ayibonte II had threatened to enstool a new Ga Manste before the year ends, alleging, Nii Tackie Tawiah II was enstooled by the previous Kufuor administration.
But the acting Adonte-hene of the Ga State, Nii Okaidja III, condemns the development in an interview with Citi news.
He said “it is big shame, everyone knows that when you are going to enstool a chief, you must make sure that the stool is vacant, that is the first thing.
“Secondly if the stool is not vacant, then there is a law under the chieftaincy act section 40. It gives a provision where you can use that provision to destool the chief who is there.
“That way you bring about legality, you bring about the rule of law. The Ga Mantse has been on the stool for five years, the Ga Mantse himself has got a judgment dated the 18th of July 2008.
“The judgment says that the Ga Mantse can continue to be the Ga Mantse, he can continue to act or function as the Ga Mantse.
“What they have done therefore means that they are in contempt of that judgement”.
