The kingmakers of Abola Piam We of the Ga State in Accra have installed Nii Tackie Obli II as Ga Mantse (chief).

This comes on the back of controversy surrounding who the legitimate king of the Ga State is.

As it stands now, there are four claimants to the stool since the demise of Ga Mantse Nii Amugi II in 2004.

Apart from the current Ga Mantse, Boni Nii Tackie Adama Latse II, the two other claimants to the stool are Ayittey Canada, now deceased, and Dr Kelvin Tackie Abia.

But the Abola Piam kingmakers insist that Nii Obli was the legitimate chief of the Ga State, thereby nullifying the reign of the current Ga Mantse, Boni Nii Tackie Adama Latse II as well as, the late King Tackie Tawiah II, known in private life as Dr Jo Blankson.

Nii Okang Osiahene IV, the Stool Father of the Abola Piam We, said it was the turn of the Abola Piam We to install the Ga Mantse after the demise of Nii Amugi, but it was by-passed by the Nii Teiko Tsuru We, who were supposed to wait for their turn as bein the third house to install a chief in Ga.

He said all the three claimants to the Ga stool, namely, King Tackie Tawiah II, Boni Nii Tackie Adama Latse II and Dr  Tackie Abia were members of the Teiko Tsuru family.

Nii Okang Osiahene IV added that with the installation of Nii Obli as the new chief, he was hopeful that the chieftaincy impasse that has persisted within the Ga state for the past two decades would be solved.

Ga State tradition indicates that the kingship rotates among four royal houses, namely, Teiko Tsuru We, Amugi We, Abola Piam We and Tackie Kommey We.

It is widely acknowledged that it is the turn of the Abola Piam We to enstool a Ga Mantse.

But ever since the demise of Nii Amugi in 2004, there has been controversy within the Ga State as to who becomes his successor.

Meanwhile, the principal kingmaker of the Ga State (the Dzaasetse), Nii Tetteh Kwei said greed and selfishness on the part of some influential persons in the Ga State are mainly responsible for some of the chieftaincy riots.
