Nii Ayitey Anumle Oyanka I, who doubles as the Acting Paramount Chief of Abola Piam in the Ga state, and Oblieman near Sapeiman in the Ga West Municipality has urged politicians to stay off chieftaincy issues in the area.

He accused the country’s politicians of behind the chieftaincy problems in the Ga State which is the reason of no sign of peace returning to the state anytime soon.

The Chief alleged that the politicians created and continuing with the problems in the Ga state anytime they took over power, and this chronic problem mainly for their prime lands and properties.

Nii Ayitey Anumle Oyanka I who stated these in an interview with on the sidelines where he announced this year’s Homowo celebration in his jurisdiction which includes Obliema near Sapeima and Opah in the Ga West Municipality.

He was emphatic that the Ga people could have solved their own differences if the ‘pretentious’ politicians staff off and rather provide security for the people as their primary responsibility.

“It is the duty of government to provide security for its people and not to help worsen the problems and pretend they are solving it with the intent to ‘loot’ the properties belonging to the Gas”, Nii Ayitey lamented.

Nii Anumle Oyanka I also called on President Akufo-Addo to caution his ministers against interfering in his efforts to install Queen mothers in his area.
The angrily spoken Nii Oblie threatened to mention names of ministers if they refuse to stay away from the activities with his Queen mothers of which they ( the Ministers) have not been invited.

In a related development, he chastised the King makers of the Ga state who are interested in money to install the wrong persons as successor chief or Ga Mantse without the fear of God and respect to their ancestors to install the rightful person to ascend the throne.

“….this behaviour is coterminous to selling of our birthright to the wrong persons who come with little money they have to ascend on the throne”, opined Nii Anumle Oyanka I.

The Obliema Mantse appealed to the residence, chiefs in surrounding communities to join him to celebrate this year’s Homowo whiles imploring all to take advantage of this year’s Homowo celebration to forgive each other for the sake of peaceful co-existence and socialisation.
