The Ga Mantse, Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II has appealed to President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo toa aid in the ongoing quest to change the name of Greater Accra region to Ga-Adangbe Region.

Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II made this call on Friday, October 22, 2021 when President Akufo Addo called on him as part of his two day tour of the Greater Accra region.

According to the Ga ruler, the change is “to advance the unification and consolidation of Ga-Adangme and increase the teaching of the Ga language in schools in the region.”

The Monarch lauded the President for the impact of policies, programmes and developmental projects he has undertaken in the Region. He specifically mentioned the James Town Fishing Harbour and the Salaga Market.

“Your Excellency, we are seeing development in Accra. But we encourage you to do more,” he stated.

The Ga Mantse also commended the President for the various social interventions introduced, especially in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the nomination of the first female Mayor of Accra.”

He also assured that the Ga State would actively contribute towards ensuring that President Akufo-Addo’s pledge to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa is achieved.

“In that regard, all the Chiefs in the Ga State pledge to be ambassadors in promoting the clean Accra Agenda,” he added.

According to Nii Tackie Tsuru II, the Ga State together with the Ga Traditional Council will work hand-in-hand to maintain peace within the Ga States.

He also pledged that the duo will “resolve all chieftaincy disputes within the shortest possible time to facilitate the development of the Ga State and Ghana as a whole.”

President Akufo-Addo expressed delight over the peace that has finally been restored to the Ga State, following the installing of Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II as Ga Mantse, after years of protracted Chieftaincy disputes in the State.

According to him, “I’m happy today, pleased, for peace to come to the Ga State during my time as President. Everyone should be excited that now we have a Ga Mantse after the protracted chieftaincy issues since the demise of Nii Amugi. I pray to God to give you strength to have a successful reign.”

He reassured King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II that he will give everything within his power to help the new Ga Mantse unify the Ga State, stressing that a united Ga State will help provide a conducive environment for the central government to function and help improve the living standards of the people.
