My People Have The Ability To Decide The Outcome Of The 2024 General Election – Ga Mantse(King) Fumes
The Ga Mantse, Nii Teiko Tsuru II, is agitated over what he described as disregard and mistreatment of Gas on their own land.
According to the Ga King, his people are sad about the situation.
He said the people of Ga Dangbe are sad because a lot of things are being done against them.
The angry King said they are all sad about the way they are being treated in the capital. He said people just get up, go to a place like Agbogbloshie and start building without even consulting a traditional authority.
The Ga Mantse made these remarks during a visit by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful, Mr Alan Kyerematen to his palace on Monday.
He stated that Gas can decide the outcome of the 2024 general election, and thus should be recognised as a key stakeholder in the affairs of the country.
“We will decide this election in 2024 because Accra is the pivot of the election. Accra is Ghana and Ghana is Accra, don’t take us for granted” he pointed out.
Ga Mantse is the title of the Ghanaian king of the Gã State in the southern part of Ghana, where the Ga-Adangbe people dwell with Accra as the capital city. The Ga-Dangbe, Gã-Daŋbɛ, Ga-Dangme, or GaDangme are an ethnic group in Ghana, Togo and Benin.
The current king of the Ga State is Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, known in private life as Dr Kelvin Nii Tackie Abia, who was duly sworn in by the Ga Paramount Stool Dzasetse (Principal Kingmaker) Dr Nii Tetteh Kwei II, a host of Dzasefoi (Kingmakers) and other traditional leaders as per Custom and Tradition demands.
