The Office of the Ga Mantse has asked the general public to ignore the enstoolment of Nii Tackie Obli II as Ga Mantse, saying he is an imposter.

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

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.

The Office of the Ga Mantse has, however, in a letter written to the media and signed by the Ga Paramount Stool Dsasetse, Nii Yaotey Otoga II indicated that “the purported Ga Mantse Nii Tackie Obli II is an imposter, and so also is Dr Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II both of whom should be treated with contempt as their motive and aim together with their cohorts is to create unrest, panic and mayhem in the Ga State."

It said: "the installation of a Ga Mantse involves a number of customary processes led by the Ga Dzasetse and his Dsase and includes also the Nai Wulomo, Sakumo Wulomo, the Asere Mantse and some principal elders which process none of the two mentioned above have gone through."

Below is the letter:

The attention of the Office of the Ga Paramount Stool Dsase has been drawn to a publication in the Daily Graphic of Monday, February 6, 2017 about the purported installation of another Ga Mantse by name Nii Tacjie Obli II. 

For the avoidance of doubt, the Ga Paramount Stool Dsase wish to inform the general public that there is a substantive Ga Mantse in the person of Boni Tackie Adama Latse II enstooled on June 11, 2011, and his name entered into the National Register of Chiefs on April, 24, 2015 by the National House of Chiefs as mandated by Article 270 (3) of the 1992 Constitution and the Chieftaincy Act 2008 (Act 759) Section 60 (1).

We wish to state clearly that, the purported Ga Mantse Nii Tackie Obli II is an imposter, and so also is Dr Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II both of whom should be treated with contempt as their motive and aim together with their cohorts is to create unrest, panic and mayhem in the Ga State.

The installation of a Ga Mantse involves a number of customary processes led by the Ga Dzasetse and his Dsase and includes also the Nai Wulomo, Sakumo Wulomo, the Asere Mantse and some principal elders which process none of the two mentioned above have gone through.
