The Greater Accra regional Minister Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo has stated that the only recognised King of the Ga State is King Boni Nii Tackie Adaman Latse II.

According to him, the recent installation of Dr. Kelvin Tackie Abia as the new Ga Mantse is illegal and must not be recognised by residents of the Ga State since the right process was not followed before the installation.

The 44-year-old entrepreneur was over the weekend installed chief of the Ga State despite the existence of King Adama Latse II who was installed in 2011.

“Before one can call himself a chief, he must be accepted by the traditional authorities within the area where that particular person comes from. Then from there, information and documents will be given to the regional house of chiefs where they will also approve of whatever nomination done by the traditional council,” Afotey Agbo told Citi FM.

The installation of Dr. Tackie Abia has also been rejected by the Ga Paramount stool saying it “must be treated with the contempt it deserves.”

A statement by the Ga Paramount stool said “the Ga Djaase wishes to affirm that there is a Ga Mantse in the person of Boni Nii Tackie Adaman Latse II who was installed on the 11th June, 2011, and has been performing his traditional duties to date without any hindrance whatsoever from any quarter.”
